    Toraki Judo GI

    SO i need to buy a new nice judogi, and after some research i've found out that many people favour Toraki GI's. To my surprise they are one of the cheapest GI's out there (compared to assumed quality).
    I have only one problem, i would need a IFJ approved Judogi, and i don't know if this http://www.toraki.com/eu/en/asp/dept...CTS.asp?id=830 is one.
    Does you know?
    Can someone suggest a good, durable, cheapGI if not?

    Thanks.

    Toraki are indeed great gi's. Also their customer service is excellent. I bought one of their personal gold gi's in blue and due to a slight discolouration around the colour (nothing major) they sent me another one completely free, inclusive of another set of gi pants.

    However if you're needing an IJF approved judo gi then I believe you're currently limited to Mizuno, Kusakura, Greenhills, Adidas and Fighting Films.

    Which IJF level events are you going to be competing in?

    Their Gold is definitely not IJF compliant, it is a very heavy judogi with a stiff collar. The new IJF standards have moved away from that. But you have to be competing at a very high level to need that equipment.

    You don't need an IJF gi for them, because they're not IJF competitions. Not sure why you've been told otherwise.
