    Attn HappyCamper - CBJJ alwasy had gi measurement regulations. The original regulations were what was called "the 4 finger in the cuffs rule". HCK have always followed these rule. In 1998, the IJF (Intl Judo Federation) instituted new uniform measurement and color rules for the 2000 Summer Olympic Games. The CBJJ, wanting to follow a protocol to enhance BJJ's chances of becoming a true international sport and hopefully be considered as an Olympic entry in the future, adopted similar measurement rules instuted by the IJF. The differences were the CBJJ allowed for a more tailored uniform vis a vis the Judo uniform. HCK, along with all other uniform manufacturers followed these new rules.

    That's so lame of you to start false rumors and attempting to slander HCK.

    Just wanted to hear what you had to say about it. The old doubble weave HCK is just one strange creation.

    The reason I asked where I was just browsing around Gis still and just wanted to check out Judo gis and some were listed as 20oz.: http://cgi.ebay.com/580-Gm-White-Si...itemZ7186328813QQcategoryZ73986QQcmdZViewItem and 37 oz. : http://cgi.ebay.com/1050-Gram-White...itemZ7185880647QQcategoryZ73986QQcmdZViewItem are they light or heavy compared to BJJ Gis? I mean I honestly can't imagine one thicker than my buddy's single weave, and I don't know how much my HCK single weave is going to weigh. Oh yeah this Gi kicks ass! : [​IMG]

    for a double weave that looks like a really good deal. But I'm still curious about the weight of gis in general. I'm looking for a really thick one so that way I can get my sweat on like a mofo. What I'm planning is that I'm going to get a moderatley priced training gi(my Hck I ordered), a cheap back up one so that way I don't offend anyone with my man scents, and maybe down the line a competition gi(I'd like to go a tourney to know where I stand). I have one and and I'm just doing some research for another one, but like I said before I want a cheap thick ass alternative, And those ones I listed above don't seem to bad.

    Clamp-I don't know anything about the gis that your have link on ebay. I have a lower priced double weave gi made by Fuji that is of high quality, it too is a judo gi. The collar is very close to that of a HCK gi. Anyway, you can see it here http://www.scientificstreetfighting.net/index.cfm?fuseaction=detail&id=31291&product=80 Iwill back this gi 100%. IF your not happy with it I'll give you a full refund and pay shipping both ways. Best of all you know where I'm at so you can always get ahold of me if something is wrong.
