Blitz Karate Suits

Blitz make a wide range of karate suits from lightweight (fairly low quality beginner suits). This is the karate suit that most beginners will begin wearing. It is the ideal karate suit for someone new to karate who does not want to spend a lot of money on their first karate suit. However after about six months you should look to upgrade your karate suit to a heavier better quality karate suit. The student karate suit is available in cotton or poly cotton.

One of the karate suits definitely worth checking out is the new and improved competition karate suit by blitz. It is now made of 50% cotton, 40% polycotton and 3% lycra. It is a lightweight suit weighing only 12oz which makes it ideal for summer training. The competition karate suit is ideal for karate tournaments due to its extra strength and longer jacket which allows for extra movement and prevents the jacket riding up. The only problem that I have found with this suit is that it is not suitable for shorter people. This is due to the length of the trouser legs which are incredibly long. Overall the suit is of a high quality and reasonably priced.

There are two other popular karate suits made by Blitz. They are the white diamond and the silver tournament karate suits. They are heavier suits allowing crisp, sharp sounding movements. The white diamond karate suit is the heavier of the two but is also stiffer. The main problem with this suit is that the cord trousers sometimes seize up after washing. However it is a good quality suit that you can expect to last you a long time. The advantage of the white diamond karate suit is that it is a Japanese cut suit which means that it has shorter sleeves and trouser legs. This is ideal for training as it means that your karate suit is not in the way of your training. It also comes with two sets of trousers so if you would prefer lighter, longer, elasticated trousers then you can wear the kumite trousers that are provided with the karate suit. The silver tournament blitz karate suit is a lot softer than the white diamond suit but it is lighter and does not come with two pairs of trousers.

Overall Blitz made good quality suits and are ideal for karateka of every level. The only real issue that some people have with Blitz karate suit is that they are made from canvas and this is not as comfortable as cotton karate suits.
