Hi Michele, my preferred gi is made by Arawaza which I believe is Canadian. Mine is the 'coral' type which is a medium weight cotton gi. I find that the cotton gi's, though heavier to wear, don't make me sweat as much as poly-cotton ones. I also prefer the shorter sleeves and leg length (Japanese cut).
Thanks for the recommendation Sue. I checked out the company website. I like how there are various styles. I prefer the longer leg and arm length. Thanks again!
Hi, Michele,Like you, I like the longer leg and arm lengths (except in the summer when I don a lighter Japanese cut gi Sue mentioned). I like ProForce and Swift/MTI with drawstring waist. Not sure about which weight you prefer, but I like middleweight cotton (8 oz) although I'm now shopping for something a little heavier (10 oz).Here's a link to Proforce's uniforms:http://www.proforcema.com/cnt_show_products.cfm?mode=Uniforms&level=6|35but I found the middleweight gi for a little less here:http://www.sakuramartialarts.com/Martial_Arts_Uniforms_Medium_Karate_Drawstring_p/uni-4203-a1.htmHere's an MTI/Winner's Zone 12 oz gi:http://www.allcombat.com/karun12oz.htmlHave fun shopping :-)
Thanks Felicia!My current gi are 12oz...I think? My favorite gi is a Shureido but it is out of my budget right now. I still have one from 1996!Now that you mention ProForce, I think my husband has one. I should "borrow" it for a few classes. :)Thanks for the links!
