    things to do with an old gi

    I'm about to replace a gi or two that have become too tattered at the lapels for dojo wear. I was wondering what people do with theirs.
    The trousers will keep going since they’re hidden by the magic pants in aikido. In judo and jits the knees don’t get the same friction as suwariwaza so patched knees are fine. Once they’re not up to that anymore they become shorts, patch material, or recently a roll up bag for short sticks and knife trainers.
    It’s an excess of tops I have now. Ideas / things I’ve tried: wear for solo work outs, throw over the bar for gi pull ups, wrapping up a grappling dummy or donating to a club to wrap noobs in.
    Has anyone come across any good DIY to do with old tops or trousers other than these?

    *edit*just found this topic on judo info here, I should widen my search next time before posting*/edit*

    Seriously, just whore it out to newbies. Most noobs at our club never come back after they leave the skin from the knees and elbows on the mats after taking their first class in shorts and t-shirts.

    Save it in the back of the closet for when I forget to do laundry and don't want to miss practice nor show up reeking of sweaty gi.
