does any body rate the adidas, i have seen a few people using them.
are they any good, or are they just a name branded gi.

the other information from every one is great thank you.

also does any one know the difference between the european cut and the japanese cut.

something to rack your brains about

ta muchly

The cheaper adidas gi's aren't very good; I think people only buy them because they say adidias on them. The more expensive ones are alright (a couple of people at my dojo have them), but what's the point in paying 60 or 70 or even more for an 'alright' gi, when you could (IMO) get a better quality one for the same money or less?

The difference between European and Japanese is that they're cut to accommodate different body shape/size. As Japanese people tend to be shorter and slimmer then this is accounted for in the cut of the gi. I have a Japanese cut gi and the sleeves on the jacket and the legs on the trousers are 3/4 length, rather than full length as with European cut gi's.

I had an Adidas, but it only lasted about a year. I would probably not buy another one.
