    Why not? I was told they were the leading supplier but I haven't bought anything from there yet.

    You'll likely wait forever for your order and have to spam the shit out of their customer service to get a reply other than "your order is currently being processed". If you want to get Century stuff, get it from another retailer. I never get my Fairtex stuff from Fairtex simply because I know it can be hell waiting on them.

    Just because they sell the most doesn't mean they are the best. It is poor quality crap for karate class. Go with a quality brand.

    For the price of a Century you can buy a HCK or an Adidas gi. I have them in stock and you can have it in 3 days.


    I do have a old Century JJ gi (bought in 94 or so) that really is just a Judo gi. It's comfy and it held up for a few years until I started using more purpose build gis.

    Short and to the point. I would have to agree. But I still have to say that the Century JJ/Judo gi is comfy but way to long and the collar is to easy to get choked with.

    By a HCK, Adidas or even a RedDog

    I have a pair of there bag gloves and I have not complaints at all. I would probably try a pair of the sherdogs if they were offered when I bought mine, but the century's are keeping up nice.

    I had a Japanese exchange student stay with me that wanted to learn a few things, so he would sparr with me. He bought a pair of century MMA gloves and the stitching on them was evil! The side of the glove was like a razor blade lol.

    Stick with a quality product that is going to take a beating. In all my years, I have never seen a MT gym carry any kind of Century product. I am guessing that is for a reason.
