Sourcing from all over the UK and a worldwide, we get to choose our most favorite products to sell. This Lightweight Judo Gi is no exception to this rule, and we think it’s the best Lightweight Judo Gi you can buy for the money. However, dont be fooled by the name, it's very rare we sell these Judo Gi's to Judo practitioners or Judoka. Sometime we sell them to Judoka Children, but to be honest the people buying these Lightweight Judo Gi are Aikido Practitioners and traditional Japanese Ju Jitsu Practitioners. The Lightweight Judo Gi si slightly too lightweight for Judoka but suits Aikido and Japanese Ju Jitsu perfectly.
So really it should be called a Aikido Gi or Ju Jitsu Gi, however, those Gi's don;t actually exist as these two styles have always trained in Lightweight Judo Gi, so that's where the confusion lies. It's lightweight fabric, compared to heavier weight Judo Gi, means the practitioner can stay cool in summer months but still benefit from the durability the Gi provides.
This Lightweight Judo Gi weighs 550gms or 17oz, and is made from a 65% polyester and 35% cotton mix. This means it can maintain it's cheap price but also it doesn't shrink much when you wash it and maintains it's white colour better than 100% cotton Judo Gi's. As you’d expect from a Judo Gi, all of the stress areas are reinforced, such the lapel / chest area and the knees. The complete Lightweight Judo Gi comes with top, trousers and a white belt. The trousers come with an elasticated waistband with drawstring.
You’ll love training in this Lightweight Judo Gi and you’ll have no need to search around for hours trying to find a better one for the same money. You won’t find one.
“When you start going through the grades, don’t wash your lovely new belt with your gi, as even these gi’s aren’t impervious to a strong dyed red belt. Being the only pink gi on the mat is not a good look.”

The Lightweight Judo Gi sizes are based on height of the person. For instance a 3/160 is based on someone of an average build who is 160cm in height. You will get a bit of shrinkage from the cotton fabric so you need to account for that when choosing your size. The sizes of the Lightweight Judo Gi we have available at Enso Martial Arts are:
