Best Answer

The uniform typically worn for karate is a dogi, or gi with an obi. There is no requirement to wear a specific uniform when you practice, but most schools require a uniform.
Most schools wear Gi's, which are (most of the time) white in color, along with their belt or sash(if they have a ranking system).

Well if you go to a karate class you should know that you have to wear something called a dogi, (Normally referred to as a 'gi') which is your karate gear. Based on the judo uniforms, it is typically white with a belt that indicates your level of learning.
