    using a dryer wears out the gi faster, and it tends to make the gi softer (if that matters to you.)

    i air dry mine.

    Other than the slight increase in wear and tear that Ming mentioned, no. I dry my gi on the low heat setting. It's still slightly damp when I take it out so I hang it to finish drying.

    Do not dry your gi for the first 3-6 months of use though, unless you want it to shrink.
    Shut the hell up and train.
