Tatami Gi Review coming up!
Since me and Rach are heading back to Bahrain in a couple weeks as we both have finished our university courses here in the UK, we both agreed we needed to go back with a good stock of gis, as they are hard to come across in the Middle East! Seeing as I have been pretty much broke for the past month, my selection was limited to UK based companies (due to lower shipping costs and shorter mailing time) and heavily influenced by price range. The best deal that I could find was between the Tatami fightwear competition gi and the Feral fightear gi. I briefly considered a Faixa Rua gi, but as far as I am aware they don't do them in black! And seeing as I have a Feral gi already, I decided to go for the Tatami one. I wasn't a huge fan of the white trim on the sleeves of their forte BJJ gi series, but this was of little concern as I decided to go with their Competition BJJ gi series, which is all black. Rach ordered one as well so hopefully there will be two new reviews floating around the web in the next couple of days! Check this space for updates!
Hey all my name is Alex Broers and I currently train out of two schools; in the UK I train with BTT under head coach Ze Marcello, while in Bahrain I train at Reza's Martial Arts Academy under Reza Monfaradi, where I started in August 2008. I just finished my degree in Business Management and Marketing at the University of Brighton, but am more interested in my training in Brazilian Jiujitsu :)
