Brazilian jiu-jitsu Gi
What is the most durable / toughest / strongest gi for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)?
At first glance, this is a silly question. This is because the strongest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi is often times not a BJJ gi at all. It’s a judo gi.
While they may look alike, there are some significant difference between Judo Gis and BJJ Gis. Typically, people don’t wear a BJJ gi for judo, or vice versa. In official competitions, you must wear the appropriate gi for that type of competition.
The nature of Judo and BJJ is similar, but different. Although both are jacketed grappling styles, the sport is opposite. Judo is primarily concerned with throwing and standup grappling, whereas BJJ is essentially focused on grappling on the ground. Therefore, the Gis are constructed to meet the needs of their respective fighter.
The Differences between judo gis and BJJ gis:
- Judo Gis tend to be heavier and stiffer, and BJJ Gis are lighter and more flexible
- Judo Gis are typically looser and BJJ Gis will fit the player much more tightly
- Some judo Gis will have a seam down the back, and BJJ Gis will not
- Judo Gis typically are either blue or white and BJJ Gis are any color imaginable
- I know it’s not a difference, but their price is not really different. High end Gis in both sports tend to be expensive.
- There is also rumor that BJJ Gis will have better pants, due to the ruleset differences between BJJ and Judo, but I have not found this to be canon.
some customers use perl weave for judo ,its up to customers what they like to wear,
