Re: What dogi do you wear in Aikido class? (brand, weight)

Hello everyone! I've been doing aikido for a few months and I am really enjoying it. I have been reading everything on this forum for the past 6 months or so and I find it so helpful.

I have a dogi from Nine Circles and would like to try a few different brands. I would love to hear what your favorite brand and weight of dogi is. Thanks in advance!

My favorite dogi is a 7 dollar pair of judo pants from Karate Depot and a top I found at Goodwill for 4 bucks. I dont go much for brands. I like the old Bujin hakama and the Iwata haks (cost too much for me), but the new Bujin haks are not as nice.

In my world, a gi is a consumable. I dont care about anything but it covering my boobs and fitting my capacious ass through a class. Well, okay, I also dont like how synthetic fabrics handle sweat, so I do try for natural fibers. I'm just gonna tear it up and wear it out, so cheap is mo bettah.

Now is the time for haunting the secondhand stores for gi parts, it's a halloween thing.
