For around $75 you can get a Sanabul Gi. Lots of people have purchased these over the years. They are heavy – they don’t always fit particularly great, but hey, for $75, they are a great starter gi and they are pretty tough. 

But – you can purchase one of our Gym Gi’s made by Sense for $90 and it will fit better and last longer. 

But again – $75 ain’t bad and our students like these gi’s.
