I'm just starting in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, what do you think I should get?

My recommendation is if you have a jiu-jitsu or judo gi stick with it until shortly before it dies a noble death (nobody likes wrestling people with ripped gi's). During this time find out which gi seems right for you, although I recommend HCK, Atama, and Gameness. If you are just starting out with no equipment try to invest under $100 on your gi, because you might also want to pick up head gear, a jockstrap with cup, knee pads, and a well fitting mouthguard. I found wearing spandex shorts under my gi pants helped too, as it prevented people from grabbing the flesh on the inside of my thighs when passing the guard.
