MMA Gi sizes, noob question etc

Discussion in 'OT Bar' started by Martin Atchet, Jul 14, 2009.

  1. So I am looking at the gameness olive green gi, single weave. It says A2 is 5'8-5'10 145-170lbs and the A3 is 5'11-6'1 175-205lbs. I am 5'10 165-170lbs (varies according to how much weight lifting/eating I do). I am on the top end of the A2 and am wondering if I should get the A3.

    I read the bjj sticky thread didn't find anything on gi sizes, possibly missed something so if I did feel free to armbar me.

    A3 and shrink it and dont be a faggot and get olive green.

    They shrink a lot when you dry them. Be careful and dry in stages. Then they must air dry after that.

    Again, dont be a faggot and get green. Faggot.
     
  3. I dunno from all the reviews I've read they don't shrink a lot. Also I love olive green. Why would this make me a faggot? Should I get black or blue like everyone else?

    Gi's are white. The only reason for a different color, (blue being the only alternative to white that is acceptable) is if you are in a tournament that requires a competitor to have both colors. I havent owned a gameness gi, so i cant speak on how they shrink. Dont be a faggot and get olive.
     
  7. you guys hate fun, thanks for the advice though.
     
  8. do you have a gameness one? thanks btw. :bowdown:

    Your small like me lol. Where do you train at?
     
  20. Getting blue A2. I don't want white because its boring and plain. Talked to my teacher tonight and he said white or blue is fine, black means I'm there to kick ass and red or green I'm gonna get shit from people. Blue it is.

    A2 crew.

    There should be a gi sticky thread imho.

    I'm gonna get a white fuji and wash it with red clothes to make it pink, and let everyone make fun of me because I dont care. But a few people will think I'm the man, cuz those people know judo gene.

    not really though
