light weight white uniform, e.g. white sword jacket and white budo pants. Meijin Budoshop recomends for basic course white katana jacket #320015 and white budo pants #33016. Or you can get a set of jacket, pants and trousers - Katana uniform #30515.Alternatively you can use Roku uniform, which is suitable for ju-jutsu also. Roku uniform is 100% cotton so it will shrink in wash c.4% and during drum dry shrinkage can be more.
