    Hi everyone!. I`m new here and a beginner on BJJ. I`m looking for a Gi for me. It would be my first gi. I`ve seen the Fuji "all around" and the "lightweight".

    What`s the difference between both?

    The A1 is for me?. 140 lbs and 5.6 feet

    Thanks!.

    I have both. The all around is much softer and heavier/thicker. I get warmer training in the all-around, but it is so much more comfortable, IMO.

    I would consider the A-2, and then shrink it as needed.

    My first gi was the Fuji Light. I don't have a lot to compare it to since I only have one other GI right now, but I love it. Definitely doesn't keep the heat in like the thicker gi does.

    I second the A2 and shink as far as sizing goes. I'm kind of wishing I would have gone with the A4 instead of the A3 so I would be able to use the dryer. I washed it once and it shrunk quite a bit.

    My second kimono was a Fuji single weave, a long time ago when they did not have unique model names and it was just a single weave; I purchased an A2 (I weighed 65kg) and it shrink so much I had to give it to an instructor for one of his kids. Keep that in mind if you want to keep your kimono for a long time. I must echo the other member's recommend to purchase a size up for insurance. - E

    I think I`ll go for the "All around" A-2.
