About Judo Gi
You cannot compete in, or even practise, Judo properly without a judo gi. The traditional judo uniform is a very important part of the culture and the practice of judo. eBay sellers offer the judo gi for men, women, and children in a range of colours and sizes. Good-quality judo gi have the jacket, or uwagi, made from heavyweight cotton with double-reinforced stitching, and trousers, or shitabaki, made of lighter weight cotton with patched, padded, reinforced knee patches to provide extra comfort and durability. The uniform also comes with a thick, heavy cotton belt, the colour of which declares the rank of the wearer. Heavier, double weave judo gi are heavier, but provide more durability, as well as a distinct advantage in competition. Because of the thicker, stiffer fabric, it is more difficult to grab ahold of a double weave judo gi, making it more difficult for your opponent to score a point. Improve your performance, increase your comfort level, and really look the part with a high-quality judo gi.
