    It's good to know some clubs don't mind the bjjgi. I mostly want to do judo to suppliment the bjj (plus it looks really cool). At least one of the colleges I'm applying to in the city have a judo club, so hopefully they'll be laid back enough. If not I can suck it up and pay

    There are some pretty cheap judo gis around to be honest. If you're not that serious about judo and just want a cheap gi, check out some sports shops. My first one cost me 15 and I used it for about a year (training 2x per week) until I got more serious about it.

    even the cheapest jiujitsugis i've seen are worlds better than some of the shittastic judogis i've seen (and owned - i'm looking at YOU century! ok, that's my fault).

    the rule of thumb for judogis seems to be that if it fits, it's not allowed. i know my war kimonos that fit so nicely would never be allowed in a judo tournament.

    I wear my white A2 single weave Atama to judo competitions. One ref however said the brand logo's they put on the shoulders were too large. A compromise was made by me putting white tape over the words Jiu-jitsu LOL.

    I do plan to buy a proper judo gi soon. My old one (a cheap kwon) ripped a while back and I have been using only atama. I think a plain A3 atama gi would be perfectly legal for me to wear in judo competition. The A2 technically is too small.

    Depends how much you wanna pay - Mizuno ones are excellent quality. Adidas also do some good top-range stuff.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    For what it's worth, I've seen guys at grading competitions in BJJ gis, huge Gracie Barra patches and all. Up to certain grades I don't think they give a ****, I suppose it depends on who's running the show though (maybe the guys in my area aren't typical).

    Edit: Where'd you get hold of a Mizuno in the UK? I need a new judogi, and I wants a spiffy one.

    Slightly of topic but a trend seems to be here

    How many of you guys cross train BJJ with Judo (or vise versa)

    I found a couple of websites on google, but they seem to be out of stock :( Hardly surprising. There's always eBay I suppose.

    At the last BJA grading I attended they were selling them there.

    Toraki, Mizuno,Danrho, and Adiddais are great gis for Judo but for the money Kwon Shimai are the best. The run around 100-130 bucks for the double weaves and last a long ass time. I replace the pants before the tops usually.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    I don't cross train in the sense that I regularly do both. However, every so often I will turn up to the local submission grappling club just for something different and to drill some new techniques in order to help my judo. A number of their guys pop down to our judo dojo every so often too.

    Both cover the same aspects, but focus on different ones. Thus it can't be detrimental to do both and become more "complete".
