Send a kimono to me and I will be happy to run it through the Joker test. I look at how the structural weak points are reinforced, feel, comfort, look, collar thickness, what happens after a wash (e.g. any color bleed), how easy is for me to manipulate the gi on offense, and how easy is it for my opponent to manipulate the gi against me (e.g. collar chokes). I'll either write a new review or expand the information already there. Contact me for more information.
