    Default The best BJJ GI brand?

    Hi, I have three alternatives to choose from Fuji (Blue), Okami (Black), and Dragao (White).
    Which one is the best judo gi brands according to your knowledge and experience? I have just started to train BJJ.
    Thanks

    I like and use Fuji. Roll three times a week and wash and dry after every session and you’ll get a year or so from that gi. Wash it every other session, hang it up after every session, and hang to dry forgoing the dryer and it will last much much longer. Also wash it in cold water. YMMV

    Nogi. Just kidding.
    Of the ones you mentioned, its hard to beat Fuji. What limits your choices to those 3 though? If its price point, Wartribe has some nice ones on sale for under 139.00 with built in liners. I dont like wearing a shirt under my gi and the liners are nice. They are cut a little tighter in the sleeves and pants which is nice for competition. Another plus is they come in some snazzy colors if you care. Downside would be the pants aren't quite as durable as some others though. Probably my favorite gi right now.

    I have been in bjj for a while. My students swear by Origin or War Tribe. Origin is pricey but USA made. I only wear Origin for training and Tatami for competition. Origin pants aren't competition legal

    50% of my training is no gi Lol

    The 93 Brand Standard Issue Gi is a great deal on a really solid Gi for $100 (less if you catch it on sale). Also, check out BJJHQ.com for rotating 24 hour deals. You'll find really good deals on there.

    I use the Century Ambassador. I have one of each color and I wash and hang dry after I roll and rotate through them. This gi is made of a little lighter material than judo gis. https://www.centurymartialarts.com/s...3djiu-jitsu%2f
