Kendo Gi
 
Hey all-

I was wondering if anyone has ever used a white kendo gi for aikido practice. One like this with a tie in the front: http://www.tozandoshop.com/Standard-...wbh[0].htm

If so, how would you compare it to any aikido gi?

Thanks,

Scott

Much more comfortable, much less durable.

Just to agree, they are very nice and comfortable for working with swords or doing kendo under all that bogu. But they're way too thin and light for any real training as in Aikido, etc.

Would make great pajamas, however...
