Have you actually tried asking Miloms if they have any left in stock? Thier website's still going, so I assume they are still in business.

It's one of those eccentricities of a certain organisation, who also think that "Jitsu" without anything attached to the left of it is a martial art in its own right, and 45 minutes of warmup in a 90 minute session make you a better martial artist.

Blitz "Jujitsu" gis are a hell of a lot smarter than the judo gis used by many JJ clubs, and a good alternative.  To be fair, the old TJF winged gis did look very good.

Are they actually winged though as in have webbing between the sleeve and body like some sort of skydiving suit?

The old TJF gi's were designed in the 80's and had extended shoulders - which were folded over and sewn in place. Personally, I think they are rubbish - they look crap on women and the wings always tore out, making the sleeves even more too long than they were already. Shame the gallery has gone, I'm sure there were pictures of me wearing one, somewhere.

Blitz jiu jitsu gi's are far thinner than the judo gi's. They may look smarter, but they rip easily. I saw one guy get his sleeve almost completely ripped off! My Milioms gi's are still going after a decade (although minus most of the wings). My Blitz judo ones aren't doing too badily either.

Off topic perhaps, but do gi's more frequently get ripped by the attacker or by the person performing the techniques ripping the attackers gi?

I've a couple of Blitz JJ gis, and they've weathered extremely well - on the other hand I do Jiu Jitsu, and not Judo in them mostly.

Everyone I've spoken to about the old winged milom gis say they were pretty crap. I think milom might still make them though otherwise they probably have some they made decades ago. :-/

If you really love wings you might want to try and get a sambo jacket / kurtka in white. Although white is a non-standard colour there seem to be some pakistani companies that make them.

My old Blitz (which I think was a jujutsu one rather than judo) lasted about a year in judo and that was after a few years of jitsu. I don't think that's too bad for a cheap gi. One of my Milom "diamond" gis (read "super lightweight") died after just a few months though I think.

Do many TJF clubs do this? It's not something I recall when I trained with them about 5 years ago. In any case, fit people are harder to beat up than unfit people.

Why are they smarter? If I recall Blitz's jujutsu-gis are the same as their cheap judo gi's but with shorter arms.

If someone wanted a decent gi I would suggest a double weave judogi from a decent manufacturer. The problem is those often have embroidery.

Some manufacturers even produce slim / normal / wide fit varieties.

Gi's ripping...curious in ways, that MHYR use a light weight gi, more akin to Aikido ones...nothing is based on grip, so I've yet to see one torn...

And whilst there is some truth in fit people being harder to beat up than unfit people, I also begrudge spending my money for JuJitsu training to have a large proportion of a session devoted to things entirely unrelated to the martial art itself...perhaps that's another topic :)

I suppose it depends if you consider physical ability intrinsic to martial arts or not...
