    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Is there such a thing as an aikido-gi? I thought they all just wore judogi and added hakama sometimes. Looks like a standard Jukado judogi to me, perfectly serviceable for a beginner.

    Sadly, there is. I've always just used my judo-gi, but you can get actual aikido gi from the like of Tozando. Bascially they are less durable and designed more for comfort than durability - due to lower level of gripping and ripping whilst throwing. From what I understand its less of a japanese thing and more of a western thing that Japan has capitalised on.

    (edit - here's a link showing various lighweight and waffle patterned gi)

    Hey guys! That Jukado gi from Kijiji is a 5/190. Do you think that would work for a guy who's 6'2" and 215lbs?

    Jukado's sizing is different now so I'm not sure if that gi would work for me. Here is Jukado's current sizing:

    I wear HSU (based purely on thats what my dojo had on hand when I started) 5 and am 6'3, 225 and a 5 is just about perfect. But that assumes the sizing is the same.

    You can't really assume that. One company's 5 is another company's 6.

    I figured, that's why I included the disclaimer. In fact one of my HSU 5s is bigger than the other HSU 5.

    Why not just go see Karl at The Martial Artist store in Orleans, so you can try on the gi before you buy one?

    Because if their website is indicative of the stock they carry, it's pretty limited and more expensive than most Canadian places online.
