    Your own saliva is one of the best solvents for getting out your own blood. Yes, I know it's nasty, but it's true. Note: this only works when the bloodstain is relatively fresh, say less than 24 hrs. Just don't ask your training partner to spit on your gi if his blood gets on it. Trust me.

    I've had a plain white single weave kikskin for four years. The pants just ripped recently. Also I trained 4-5 days a week for over two years while wearing this gi, and I washed it after every training session. My kikskin comp lite is 3 yrs. old and is hardly worn.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    Here are some links to Gi's under $100
    http://www.goldentiger.com/public/in...nguage=english
    I have one of these. Its actually a good gi for so cheap. Lots of color and the cut is right between a traditional Judo cut and a BJJ cut. Perfect for us hybrids.

    www.ouano.com
    I have had a couple of these gi's. One of them I loaned out and never got back. Grrrr. The other one I got this year. It's blue and it is great. I love it. Under $100 shipped. John Ouano is also good service. I got a free Tshirt out of the deal too.

    http://onthemat.com/xcart/customer/home.php?cat=2
    Onthemat I dont know about their customer service. But this shows 2 gi's. The HCK single. Industry standard for years, and the Gameness gold weave. One is $70, the other is $105. I figure split the difference and it falls into the under a hundred category.

    http://www.atama-kimonos.com/product...ached_blue.htm
    The blue Atama is going to run under a hundred bucks too. Another industry standard.

    Now...

    Here is a couple of websites that are reputable. Shop and compare:
    http://www.brazilianfightwear.com/st...parent_ids=0,2
    I got a Krugans through brazilianfightwear delivered to my house from brazil in 5 days! Shipping was free! Nice, eh? 52 gi's listed here.

    http://www.riofightwear.com/index.ph...a2c59e26819871
    23 gi's here. I have never ordered from them but they seem well liked with good customer service. The images they have of the gi's are horrible on the website though.

    Now, a few words of advice : DO NOT BUY FROM MMAGEAR.COM. If you do, I will laugh at you when you post here about not receiving your products 3 months later. In fact, I will TTT it and mock you daily. People continue to buck the odds thinking they will somehow be immune to their shitty service and continually are disappointed. Don't do it.

    Personally I am looking at a Machado Kimono (MKimono) possibly when they finally get restocked. Someday. Perhaps one of these new Gameness platinum weaves if they put one out that doesn't look like a fucking billboard. But probably am going to grab another Ouano just because I know it is a good gi for a good price.

    I managed to get most of the blood out of my white gi with Zout brand stain remover. I tried Shout Gel and Spray and Wash before that and they didn't work as well. At one point half the right arm was stained because of a nasty rugburn I had that kept reopening every time I rolled, as well as various other smaller blood stains. I bleed alot.

    Blood stains look kind of green on a blue gi, but they aren't noticable if you don't know to look for them.

    Sirius gis are getting rave reviews on the Jiu Jitsu Gear Forum; I just ordered one: http://www.jiujitsugear.com/forum/in...?topic=48531.0

    plus I think they get bonus points for manufacturing in family-owned non-sweatshops in Central America.

    Just thought i'd inform all the UK guys, the Judo Gi's are very good value and robust.
    Sorry for bumping an old thread.

    This is where I got mine:
    http://www.juka.com/uniform/juka.htm#emerald

    I have the emerald because it's tournament cut. The thing wears like iron. I can definately recommend Juka. SHUREIDO is slightly better but considerably more expensive.

    Gi recommendations

    Hello all

    ...i am in the market for a new gi, i have 2 atama gis (1 single weave and 2 gold weave), and while they are alright, i am not blown away with them, and thus i am looking to try out a new gi company.

    ...Any suggestions, i was looking at a WAR and Sirrus gis, has anyone heard anything about these 2 companies? And if so, what is your opinion on the products offered by these 2 companies. Or any recommendations of other companies would be great.

    ...LATER......BUCKETBOT..........
