Thread: Which gi to buy?

    Buy a Judo gi for last than 50 pounds. Judo gis are slightly different to BJJ gis but they'll do fine. At the very least, you'll need two Gis if you start training regularly so get a cheap judo one now and perhaps a more expensive one in 6 months.

    Regarding judo gis - they are cut for a tighter fit so may not be comp legal. Worth bearing in mind, although most UK comps are not that strict on gi sizing.

    i still have a blitz judo gi which i bought in 2002. they are about 25
    as Rob T said tho not sure if legal in comp
    i dont see the point in paying a fortune when there is a chance you may give up after a month if you dont like it

    I ordered an 80 Atama the day after my first lesson! Loved it straight away and I knew I'd be doing it a while

    I was actually under the impression that BJJ Gis are a much more tapered cut, much less room at sleeves, much shorter skirt etc. Bjj gis are definitely illegal in judo competition but i've never had a problem with judo gi in BJJ.

    "cut for a tighter fit"

    not sure if that's true.

    judo gis are really baggy. you wouldn't fail a bjj comp check in a judo gi. but you'd probably fail a judo comp check in a bjj gi
    man, when you're the nail, hang in there....until the day you become the hammer

    I bought a Tatami Zero Gi the other day and it's quality, good price too.

    Ok, maybe I got it wrong. Some of the judo guys who train with us have really tight sleeves on their gis but maybe they are just too small for them/old gis which have shrunk!

    i got a red tatami gi and after a couple of months the draw string has started to fall apart and it came with a white gi bag with a big red section. thay didnt colour fast it so now i have a pink gi bag and even after several washes the colour keeps rubbing of on my belt.
