    Beginning Jui-jitsu and going to buy a Koral gi hopefully.

    I'm currently ~5'10 and 250lbs, but losing weight weekly as I workout pretty heavily.

    My training starts soon and i'm wondering which sizes to shoot for seeing as i'm a little overweight.

    Any opinions will be welcomed! thanks!

    If you buy a size similer to your own it will be abit bigger than you to start off with until you wash like a dozen times. So it really depends on what you want.

    I'm 5'9 255, and I wear an A4 top A3 pants since I have short legs. Tops are different though. I bought an HCK that doesn't fit right at all it's too small. Atama fits well if you have some extra weight, and I have a Vulkan A4 that I love. It fits really well over my big gut. I also bought a cool looking black GI from a company called Brass Knuckles Fightwear. It's also an A4 gold weave, and it fits well. For the money, I would recommend this gi to anyone for the price, looks and quality. Check them out.
