Gi $100-200? We get our Mizuno for 40 a pop, and those things are wonderful... as for bokken, you can get a good white oak bokken and jo for about a hundred bucks... call the Kiyota Company.

As for what you want to look for in a sensei-- long answer, someone you respect, someone you respect whom does not ask you to respect them, someone who you feel has strong technique, someone who you feel holds characteristics in their technique and personality that you don't have, and are willing to work for.

Short answer-- role model.
