I finally broke down and ordered some new gi pants. I’ve been riding off my ripped up old white and blue ones long enough. And after many classes with my very comfortable black karate pants, I thought I should get off my butt and get things done.
Today, I placed an order at Jiu Jitsu Progear for three pairs of white competition gi pants. They were fairly cheap at around $40 each. We’ll see what they look like and if they hold up after I receive them.
I’m hoping I’ll receive them soon because I’m currently borrowing a pair from John-Michael of Fight Science Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Flagler Beach. Not that he misses them or anything, but I’d like to start wearing my own pants.
The reason I need to go white is because that’s the way some of these Gracie academies like to run. They’ve always worn white gis and a lot of guys like tradition. I know Jeff up in CT likes rolling gi because he’s into tradition as well, so when in Rome, folks. I’m just glad that I already have two white Koral gis.
I’ll let you know how they’re holding up after a few good rolls.
