    I have Koral shorts that I love. But from what I hear form everyone, Atama is best bang for your buck.

    Not anymore. Atama raised their prices a few months ago and I personally do not think they are really worth it.

    However, alot of gyms still carry atamas for the old price, so if you can find that, go ahead

    Best gi i've ever owned, it's soft, very comfortable for my body style and the pants are like any other pants..

    yeah it's pre-shrunk and the band around the waste is a nice ROPE


    it's nice

    I got one and wore it long enough to get a blue belt. I've probably only actually rolled in it 30 times. I hate it and I'm bad at it.

    I probably don't deserve to really be a blue belt because of that and I probably won't ever get a purple because of it. I didn't start in a gi so getting used to it was really difficult for me. I don't know how to move well when I'm being held down.

    One of the black belts in my gym bought a pink gi for 10 bucks. I can't remember what brand it was... but it was definately a quality one. He's so proud of it too... he wears it all the time :rofl:

    You should know that to refine and have the best technique you need to be good player with the gi, you need it to have the finest technique you should put it on and roll more!

    Swallow your pride!
