Sometimes the material can make a difference in colo(u)r... but normally the only evidence of this is a gi that is off-white vs white

The assistant instructors wear a red gi. SabumNim wears a black gi and so does KwanJaNim. (sp?) Those are the 2 head, master instructors.

Are these reflective of different Martial Arts? or also used in conjunction with rank?

or are they just to make the fighter look...er...more colourful.

Sorry for the dumbass question...but when I asked Jeff Curran he never answered me


Some martial arts don't care about your gi. At my dojo, you wear a white gi for the first year.We offer a free 10oz white gi when you sign up for the free trial. After you make green belt, you are able to wear colored a gi.



My colored gi.. school colors are red/black


Our BJJ gi's are blue.. just for the fun... and they are not dojo affiliated, mine is like wearing a shag carpet...




I wear a black gi for Shuri -Te Jitsu and when the white and red and black gi are dirty.


For balintawak.. no gi is required...

Damn Spirit! You have a lot of Gis. I only three. One for Karate and two for Jiu Jitsu. Karate was a long time ago but I still have the Gi.

I just acquire them. I needed a few when I started teaching.

The white ones cost the students, the colored ones are awarded. Leadership kids are picked out of the class by the instructors and are then given an extra class a week and are required to assist in at least one lower class a week. The red gis are for assistant instructors and it's a paid position. Although you could implement it so that the students pay for their all of their gis and then make some good money off of it.
