* [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/09/Ryozanpaku.jpg Kenichi]] and Miu from ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple''. Kenichi's masters are a category of their own, since the LimitedWardrobe of some of them can be seen as ''both'' a custom-made MA uniform ''and'' a traditional "civilian" costume.

* ''KickinIt'''s karate students generally wear wasabi-green T-shirts under their gis. They also take "not wearing them all the time" to the logical limit, spending quite a lot of time hanging around the dojo in street clothes.

The East, a land of culture, of beauty, and of numerous Martial Arts. These forms of combat are well known throughout the world, and are respected by many. But we're not here just to talk about Martial Arts, no, we're here to discuss the uniforms the Martial Artists use, the clothes that make you say "That guy/girl knows ______".

This trope is about characters who are seen wearing these uniforms at one point or another at ANY point in series. Hell even background characters count. Keep in mind, the characters don't have to wear these uniforms at all times (although some do), they just have to wear them once to be an example.

This trope is often invoked when a show wants to bring generic Martial Arts enemies or when a writer wants to show how or why someone is so good at fighting.

Often identified as Keikogi, Karate Gi, Dobok, Judo Gi, etc. TruthInTelevision for a large number of martial arts, though not all of them use the "white suit" most often seen.

NOTE: The uniform can be from a totally made-up (or even Alien) Martial Art, as long as the character is wearing the uniform and not his normal clothes. Another thing is that the people wearing these don't ''have'' to be Martial Artists. They could just be pretending, although this is uncommon.
