    Single Weave Judogi Saves Judo

    What do you think? Eliminate the Suits of Armor wore at most Trainings and Tournaments and convert to a Single Weave Judogi.

    Good Luck

    thicker gi are harder to rip and last longer.

    plus wussies can't grip 'em.

    double wave all the way. Only thing that sucks about DW is trying to stuff it into your backpack.

    Grow up and get some grip strength. Singles rip and are too loose they are not the best to handle real tough training. Plus they tend to become sweat rags a lot easier than a good double.

    A good double weave gi is a must if your going to train seriously. The option of your partner using it as a weapon against you is less and your grip breaks will at least have some effect unless its Neil Adams. You could be wearing a suit of armor and he could still grip you.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    If you are training Judo in and your single weave lasts more than 3 months, there is something wrong with your training.

    True dat.

    I use a single weave, have so my entire training carreer and the Worcester Judo Club is hardly a place for light training. Oh, I did rip someone else's gi when I tried to use my foot on his lapel to lever him off while grabbing the bottom of the lapel and it tore, but for the most part if it's a quality single weave it'll hold just fine.

    Just for the record: I'm not bitching about the comfort or ease of grip for a double, I train with guys who have double's and have tried one out myself and didn't mind it, I just have my single and it's still strong and I see no reason to change (until it breaks, when I might splurge and get me a quality Mizuno Double or something)

    Exactly what is so broken about Judo that it could be fixed by a lighter cloth, anyway?
