Atama Gold Weave Gi Reviews

atama gold weave review

Atama Gold Weave Gi

The Atama gold weave is the middle of the road gi from Atama.  It’s heavier than the single, but lighter than the double.  This means it’ll last longer than your single weave, but will be more mobile than the double weave.

The Atama Single Weave

Atama Single Weave gis are the industry standard for a single weave gi.  In fact, my first BJJ gi was an Atama single weave.  They provide a good balance between being lightweight, but also being mobile and fast-drying.  The gi is great for training in warm weather or in a gym where the heat is always on high (like mine).  They are also more duable than the lightweight gis on the market.

The body of the gi is slightly tapered and while the top is 100% cotton, the pants are a cotton-poly blend.  There is no belt included when you buy the Atama Single Weave gi, so be aware.

Fuji ADCC Pro Gi Reviews

New from Fuji Sports are the Fuji ADCC Pro Gis made specifically for the Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC).  There are two versions: the ADCC Pro Gi and the Fuji ADCC All-Around Gi.

The ADCC Pro Gi is a summer-weight uniform made from pearl weave fabric.  It has the ADCC logo, Brazil and UAE flags and a super-cool ADCC fabric around all of the edges (including along the lapel, which you don’t see a lot of companies doing).  Like many other gis, the collar is made of rubber.

New from Fuji Sports are the Fuji ADCC Pro Gis made specifically for the Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC).  There are two versions: the Fuji ADCC Pro Gi and the All-Around gi.

The All-Around gi is a mid-weight gi that is good for regular academy training.  It has a lot less flash than the pro gi and the jacket has a shorter skirt and the arms are more tapered than the pro.  The pants and jacket are both built to be strong enough to handle a lot of hard training.  It has Brazilian and UAE flags on the shoulders and pants and a large back patch with the ADCC logo.

Lucky Bamboo Series Fleur-De-Lis Gi Review

Gi Review: Lucky Bamboo Series Fleur-De-Lis

Summary

These new lucky gis have a new type of fabric never really seen before in BJJ gis: bamboo.  They claim to be stronger, softer, very lightweight, and carry a 1 year warranty.  That’s pretty cool because although many manufacturers will replace a gi if you call them, there really aren’t any written warranties out there, especially after youwash the gi.

The new gis also claim to be stronger than cotton and hemp and as soft as silk.  They also may hardor less bacter compared to their cotton counterparts.

Lucky Bamboo Rude Boy Gi Review

Gi Review: Lucky Bamboo Rude Boy

via Georgette Oden

Finally, my review of the new Lucky Gi– I was entranced by the concept of bamboo fabric for jiu jitsu gis. Entranced, but also nervous about the $289 price tag. Could a gi really be worth that much? I loved my old-version Lucky (the Lovato model) and still do. But I bought it used on ebay for $67! Still, I was pretty curious when I read what Lucky has to say about it:

“If you live anywhere in the world you can get your new Lucky Gi shipped to you for free. We really want everyone to see how great this new Bamboo Fabric is. It has some amazing properties. Your gi will always smell better, it will be cleaner and much softer too. Best of all you will always look great and feel great!”

Koral New Classic Kimono Gi Review

Gi Review: Koral New Classic Kimono

Koral New Classic Kimono

The Koral New Classic kimonos are the newest version of the older Koral Classic gis.  They’re still made of 100% cotton and should be preshrunk.  As one of the largest gi manufacturers, Koral usually provides a standard product generally free of major flaws and errors.

For the Koral New Classic changed their lettering around a bit (I liked the old style better) and you see that reflected on the new pants.  Also, there is no large back patch like the MKM Competition gi.

Koral MKM Competition Kimono Review

Koral MKM Competition Kimono and Gi Reviews 

koral mkm competition kimono review

Koral MKM Competition Kimono

The Koral MKM Competition Gi is made in Brazil and 100% cotton.  Typically when people think of Koral, they think of this gi.  It has the most patches of any Koral gis and, if you’re like me and like that look, this is a great gi for you.  It has a bit more of a competition cut meaning its a bit thinner in certain areas with a shorter skirt making it more competitive.

This gi has been used by a lot of competitors for a long period of time and is tried and true.  A great choice if you’re looking for a new kimono.  As with all Koral MKM gis, the belt is not included.
