    Default Christmas present to myself

    OK, I got sick of the old student-weight Century Gi thing I was using...as it starts getting to be more and more hard contact as I go up belts and stuff it keeps ripping and falling apart...

    So, I went and bought myself a Kwon 12-ounce Black Gi http://www.kwonusa.com/kwon/usa/kara...&SInfo=details ...SWEET, it's sized longer so the top isn't pulling out of my belt and stuff any more...

    Jeez, I shoulda done this a long time ago...it's a lot hotter, but it sure is tough...

    Anyway, just wanted to share my little bit of joy this week, not that anyone cares but me.

    Glad you're happy with it; having a gi that keeps falling apart is a PITA.

    Kwon has quality products and stands behind them.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    funny you say that, the first class, that was the first thing I noticed asside from sweating more is the "snap" when doing the kicks and strikes, kinda cool, adds a good "hollywood factor"

    14 oz, jeez, mines 12 and I can't imagine any heavier...my Kwon is nice brushed material too, very soft, not the rouch burlap or whatever the heck the Century was made out of...I had to was that thing about 100 times before it was soft enough to wear comfortably, then it started ripping...well, ya get what you pay for.

    Large and Tough (like my ex wife)
    Bahahahahaha
