gi folding instructions

Folding your uniform

Use the floor – Lay the jacket out with the back down to the floor. Spread the sleeves out so that they point straight out to the sides in opposite directions.

Fold one side over – Fold one sleeve and a quarter of the torso of the jacket over toward the other sleeve. As any part of your jacket that was on the floor is folded in, brush it off with your hand to get anything that stuck to it off. Also, this brushing action helps you to crease your uniform neatly.

Fold the sleeve back – Fold the sleeve back on itself. Now fold the other side in and that sleeve back the same way.

Fold the jacket up – Two more easy folds and your jacket is folded into a nice square.

Now for the pants – Lay the pants out on the floor and brush them off to flatten them. Fold them in half, bringing one side over the other.

Fold the top down – Now fold the top half of your pants down and continue folding so that your gi is rolled up in folds in three motions.

Tie a bow – Now place the jacket and pants together, making sure that the loose ends are inward on both items. Wrap the belt around the package, and tie it off.  You’re done!
