The tags and should be synonyms of the English version . These are all the same concept, and all current questions tagged are also tagged .

Revisiting this years later now. Is there a reason to keep these concepts separate?

    I could do this, but I'll leave it for the community to do instead. I would actually change uniform to training-uniform just to be really explicitly clear, but let's see what everyone else says first.

While gi and dogi are training uniforms, the inverse is not true. (Not all uniforms are gi or dogi.) We would either have to expand to cover every type of uniform, or allow individual kinds of uniforms to crop up.

Personally, I think having a simple for all kinds of uniform has potential to both hurt and help. I suspect we get the most gains with this tag if we advise people to also tag their questions with whatever martial art they are interested in. So and would be about Judogi and would ask for about the uniform they wear in that martial art. If that usage guide is in place, I think it will work well. If that isn't there, I think the unified tag will waste people's time.

    Although not all uniforms are gi/dogi, there are no current questions about uniforms that are not specifically gi/dogi.
