    Crappy GIs from around the world: Which shall survive the Grapplocalypse?

    I have been scouring the earth for cheap and interesting GIs. Concensus has always been that they suck, and none will survive the thousands of grasping hands of the zombie grapplocalypse.

    But hark, doth I hear a challenge? Someone keeps telling me that that there happeh kiddo has teh crapples, and that I would surely be able to use one of their fancy and temptingly cheap contrast-stitched tops while I administer beatings to the unworthy masses.

    So tell me, is this the bullshit I expect it to be? Because the shame of being beaten by a man wearing a hapkido top is a shame I wish to spread.

    If you really want to find shitty gis, go to alibaba.com and poke around. You'll find the shittiest gear of all sorts ever made by underpaid children.

    My FMA teacher learned karate in the Philippines in the 1960s I believe, and he told us that they used to take the thick rice sacks and sew them into gis, with the inside of the sack as the outside of the gi. So, if you looked at the inside of their gis, you could see the brand and label of the rice.

    I've got a heavyweight Ed Parker gi that feels more like a judo gi than a typical karate one. Double stitched, double thick at the knee and shin. You can grab the lapel and throttle it without issues. Also- secret throwing star pocket inside lapel! (But they may see it coming on account of the black gi).

    The velcro pocket is a nice touch. That way, when you wear your bitchin' black gi to Walmart, you won't lose your wallet when your supervisor throws you out.

    One of the guys in my club (nikkyu level, one of the best fighters) is so poor that until a few months ago he actually came to practice with a TORN judogi (tear was just under the belt on the back) because he couldn't afford a new one.

    And he would kick the asses of all the rich kids who come once a week for a month and never come back.

    So **** your consensuses. The gis may suck, but the people who wear them are usually the awesomest in class.

    I've been wanting to get a new gi recently. The Ed Parker one is the one I was considering. Good to know its not a cheap karate gi.
