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.

* When ''BeakmansWorld'' tackled breaking boards, both Lester and Phoebe donned martial arts gis. Lester's had a black belt (actually, it was a white belt; he just never washed it), while Phoebe came by her green belt more honestly ([[TheCastShowoff as did her actress]].)

* In an ArchieComics story, Mr. Weatherbee opposes Archie's new school karate club. He changes his mind after Archie, as a result of the usual klutzy clothes-ruining mishap, lends him a Karate outfit in which to walk home, which ends up saving Weatherbee from a mugging because the crooks assume that if he's wearing the outfit, he must be able to kick their asses.

* ''{{Seinfeld}}'': Kramer wore one while [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2CTihQy_XE#t=2m27s taking karate lessons.]] He dominated the class, because the other students were all 10 year olds. ("But we're at the same skill level.") Then they saw Elaine just push him down and they all ganged up on him in a DarkAlley.
