    Adding this to my Muay Thai training...never worn a Gi before.

    What site do you guys recommend for a Gi and what are some good brands and things I should look for? Is sizing on different sites accurate?

    Thanks guys.

    Something cheap so if you quit, you're not out the 160 bucks on a Koral.

    BJJ gis are cut differently than judo gis and are a lot more snug and a good bit more expensive. You can pick up an off brand like Worldorf or Fuji or something is going to run you like 75 bucks.

    I know this is like as generic as it gets, but I've never seen a single jj gi anywhere near this cheap.

    Academy sells em. Was just taking a look around to see if there was a better deal around somewhere.

    I ended up buying one from the school yesterday.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    i just don't see the need to wear pajamas while rolling, if it makes ya feel any better i wish i could have worn some board shorts back when i wrestled in school, it's not just the gi that i think is silly
