What sizes do GIS come in?
BJJ Gis typically come in sizes from A0 to A6. The ‘A’ stands for ‘Adult’ sizing and the number just represents different sizes for adults, with the higher number being for the bigger size. Kids Gis follow different sizing, sometimes M0 – M4 and sometimes 000, 00, 0, 1, etc.
Are all gi sizes the same?
While most brands have their own gi size calculator, they all generally consist of both a letter and a number. Sometimes, there is only one total size for the gi, meaning that the top and pants are assigned the same letter-number combo. Some brands offer different sizes for the top and the pants.
How much do Jiu Jitsu Gis shrink?
How much can a gi shrink? In the first six months, a gi will typically shrink 1-2 inches. Over the course of the next year, your BJJ gi will most likely shrink another inch or so. Of course, the amount your gi will shrink depends on the quality fabric used in the making of your gi.
How do Shoyoroll GIS fit?
Since our gis run a little bigger, we usually recommend that you go down a size if you like your gi to be on the fitted side. Some people prefer to have their gi more on the loose side and in that case, we suggest to refer to the size chart.
Can white belts wear black gi?
You can wear a black gi as a white belt. In some training facilities, it may not be allowed for you to train with a black gi, so check with your school before getting a black gi.
What size is A2H GI?
The A2 would be the “normal” size for the Gi, about 5’5″-6’0″ and 154-190 lbs. The A2XL will be about 1 1/2 to 2 inches longer that the height of the A2 but the same weight size, and the A2H is for “husky”. This would be for someone who is the height of the A2 but wider than the “regular” A2.
Do you wear anything under a GI?
Yes, you need to wear underwear under your gi pants. It’s also not uncommon to wear compression pants or fight shorts under your kimono. At some academies, wearing fight shorts under the kimono makes for an easy transition from gi to no-gi during live training.
Do Sanabul GIS shrink?

Does BJJ belt size matter?

Do GIS shrink when washed?
After washing a gi, throw it in your dyer, and the hot air will shrink the cotton. Start conservatively, not going too hot yet. After shrinking, the cotton will stretch again (think of how tight freshly washed and dried jeans are before they relax). It may take a few tries before it gets to your desired size/length.
Can you wash different color GIS together?
I feel like once they have been washed already you can wash them together. Colors usually don’t bleed after the first wash. Yes! And wash your belt too (just don’t dry it).
Do GIS keep shrinking?
Also, we strongly advise against purposely shrinking your gi, whether by hot washing or drying,as you cant control what parts of the gi will shrink. Most pre-shrunk gis will continue to shrink about 2%, which is about 1cm off the sleeves and roughly 2cm off the length of the jacket. So purchase a gi with this in mind.
