    What gi brand do you wear for competitions? Why? Do you have a gi that you put on the side (keep from training with) that you use, or do you use a gi that you train with?

    My competition gi is my class gi. I don't like the idea of doing anything different for competition, because it just heightens my anxiety.

    I need things to be as normal as possible, so that I can duplicate my class rolling on the mat as closely as possible.

    Koral blu... it's the lightest I have, plus I feel really comfortable in it. I regularly use it in class too anyway.
