Why do we as Karate-Ka wear White Gi's (Uniforms)
The white gi symbolizes an aim of humility and modesty. White is void, it is pure; a blank canvas worn during each new experience in a life of karate practice. Regardless of how many weeks, months, and years of training one accomplishes, a plain white gi worn for participation in class serves to demonstrate a new beginning upon each bow-in; a commitment to an open heart and mind. It demonstrates community in the dojo; a positive conformity to a group of individuals who seek an activity of self-improvement. This same goal spans the entirety of Japanese budo.
