    For keiko gi I really like fuji gi.
    Tabi I don't know. I use the ones I ordered via my sensei, and they are bought in japan.

    Diplomacy is about haggling with people you'd prefer to shoot, which results in agreements that everyone hates, but can't live without.

    To practice deadly but not drilled fully OR not deadly but drilled against full resistance; that is the question.

    For keiko gi; fuji is a great basic gi that is sure to last you a long time, and for a good price. If you are looking for something more: I personally like Juka, and: Shureido. But that's easily going to cost you at least 150 euro for a gi. I've got a black shureido on order, if they are available here in Belgium. Hard to beat shureido imho .

    I have recently found the best out-of-the-bag gi I have ever worn, it is a Blitz 'Kokuba' black judogi, designated for 'student' use, rather than master/instructor/competition/gold etc etc, but was soft, flexible and extremely comfortable from day one, is a little more lightweight than most judogi, and more than tough enough for the demands of taijutsu. No jacket ties to lose, padded knees on the trousers, and a tie-waist on the adult sizes, so no red railroad round your belly after training with nasty elasticated pants!

    And nice and cheap too.

    Even if I were to become very wealthy I would probably stick with this gi for evermore. I love it!

    As a sidenote, I bought a 'jujitsu' gi from Blitz 18 months ago and it is still stiff as carpet and causes much undesirable nipple chafing so it proves that it is not always the brand that is unfit for one's needs, just the particular product. Forget their jujitsu gi, go with the black judogi!

    I think Soke often uses a Shurite keiko-gi.

    Or get some leather tabi from Ercan (advertised on Kutaki), I think he works from a drawn outline of your foot.

    Re: Best Keiko-gi and Tabi brands?

    If you live in the Baltimore, MD area, the heavyweight black gi I purchased from Kiyota Company is the best I've ever owned. I like the fit and style of it and the material is very durable. They don't have a web site but they have a small store front and do mail order by phone. I usually wear a 5 but got a 6 I think they use japanese measurements. Just order a size larger than you usally wear.
