how to fold your Karate Gi
I knew it!
You want to know how to create that neat little package that the Japanese are famous for.
There are a lot of ways of how to fold your Karate Gi - also called dogi. Of course in Japan, there are different styles.
I learned only one though from Nukina Sensei which I share in the video below.
Three advantages to folding your karate gi the Japanese way:
- You can't make it smaller than that: It's fits easily in your bag or suitcase when you travel.
- It puts your mind at ease (seriously): Fold it slowly and properly to feel what that means.
- It's cool😎
- It takes a lot of time though and you need a clean surface... it's not always practical (That's why you'll learn my way as well).
I know the Japanese way is cool - but my way is faster👇
