Hello to you all, i'm from México and i've been practicing aikido for three months, altough i'm resting this last month because of an injury in my lower back, nothing serious fortunatedly, but painfull nontheless. I'm going to visit japan this 22th of Juy, arriving Tokyo for 3 days,then Kyoto for another 3 days and Osaka for 2 more days before returning to Tokyo for one last day before departing.
I will be looking to buy a quality Gi, but i don't know where and i'd like some recomendations, also i have a couple of questions, do you recomend that i post in General section? or Open Disscusion ?
Welcome Mike! Where in México do you live? I visit from time to time, but it's a pretty big country.
When I finally make it to Japan, I will be checking out Iwata
for gi and hakama and whatnot. It has a history of supplying aikikai instructor (apparently O Sensei as well). Their stuff is top notch, and it would be a fun cultural experience to go in person.
