Nine Circles supplier

We're potentially looking for a new place to by dogi, and the ones at http://ninecirclesusa.com/ look pretty decent.
I was wondering if anyone had purchased from them, and what you thought.

Thanks!

i liked them. decent gi for reasonable price. wouldn't recommend the wooden weapon though. ordered some bokken and the wood quality was bad. e-bogu has better bokken.

Re: Nine Circles supplier

Thanks for the feedback; that helps.
We've used Century Martial Arts for awhile, and they have a good wholesale price, but are currently out of stock of most sizes.

Re: Nine Circles supplier

I have their 500g and 800g keikogi and highly recommend both. Nice two piece construction, great value.

Re: Nine Circles supplier

I have three of their 9 oz aikido gi and love them for year round training in Florida. They are holding up better than some of the much more expensive gi I've tried over the years. This has become the go to gi for our students because of the price point and quality.

There is a little shrinkage so make sure you buy the right size. They've been very helpful in confirming sizes.

Re: Nine Circles supplier

I can recommend the 500g dogi. In a "coals to Newcastle" move I had one shipped to Japan a while back. At the time the exchange rate was obscenely in my favor, but even now the price to quality ratio is high. Don't know about their weapons or other gear but the dogi are a good deal.
