I wore my core premium gi 2nyt for the 1st time. I was very impressed with it, it felt just like my Seishin gi but was more comfortable, although it didn't quite have the snap of my Seishin gi, it was still very nice and comfortable to train in. Many thnx
Just received my Core Premium yesterday and was very impressed in a Gi that comes in its own tidy bag. Lovely touch!
The gi offers possibly the longest side ties I've ever encountered and the pants are the traditional Japanese style drawstring and the cut is quite wide.
The jacket has a nice length and offers ample movement.
Material wise it feels the same as some other modern Western-style Gi's and from past experience should have very little shrinkage.
Wearing the Gi during practice was a good experience with nice overall movement and not getting stuck doing high kicks or aggressive freestyle Kumite. Although a middleweight Gi it felt really comfortable and I'm sure will become one of my favourite Gis as an instructor.
Karate Waikato can recommend the CORE brand of Karate Gi's and it is now our prefered brand.
