Adult Gi Size Guide


How a gi fits you is all about personal preference. In reality, if a gi is a bit too big, it's not the end of the world as it will shrink over time, and it can be tailored to fit like a glove. however, if it's too tight for you where it hinders your movement, then your shit out of luck unless you want to bring it to a tailor and have them add fabric to the areas that are too tight.  I personally feel a baggier gi makes you better as it makes it easier for training partners to grip you. Then, if you enter a competition, you put on a slimmer fitting gi that is still within the rules to dominate the division :). We'll continue posting photos of people of different body types trying out gis locally at our office and posting how they felt about each size to give you a better feel of how our size chart might fit on you.

SHORT STOCKY GUYS

  • Small was tight in the shoulders and hips he said if he needed a snug gi for a competition he might buy this size and use it brand new unwashed as it would be harder for opponents to grab but as a daily training gi it would be too tight and most likely wouldn't fit after shrinkage
  • The medium was the best fit out of the box; sleeves would shrink down perfectly
  • Large was a bit long, but after shrinkage, it could work for him
  • BXL was long and baggy, but he did say he'd shrink it, and if it needed to be hemmed, he would be happy with it

AVERAGE ATHLETIC GUYS

  • Small was to tight in the shoulders, and after shrinkage would be to small but out of it looks good
  • the medium fit perfectly out of the box but maybe after a year of shrinkage he felt it might be too short in the sleeves for his liking
  • Large was big and baggy, but he felt after trying to shrink it down it should fit like the medium so we went with the large

TALL LANKY GUYS

  • Medium fit well but the length was a bit on the short side
  • Medium Tall was the best fit and after shrinkage, would still be good
  • The Large was on the baggy side, but the length was good
  • Large Tall was just way too big, lengthwise after shrinkage it would be fine but he preferred the MT and the large over this size

TALL ATHLETIC GUYS

  • Out of the box Large fit good maybe over time it would shrink a bit more than he preferred
  • Large Tall fit perfectly and there was room for shrinkage
  • XL/A4 is the size that has always been his go-to size for the past decade and a half just for the length. however, after shaping up and cutting 30plus pounds of fat from around his gut and making a feeble attempt at getting jacked (his words), all his fits XL/A4 gis are on the baggy side and the LT is going to be his new go-to size.

STRENGTH ATHLETE GUYS

B3XL 280lbs powerlifter bjj gi size

  • 2XL felt fine maybe a bit tight in the shoulders and also a bit long
  • B2XL felt good, and he wanted to buy this size cause out of the box, he liked the shorter sleeve length and skirt, but I suggested he try the B3XL
  • After trying on the B3XL, which was a bit long in the sleeve but gave more room to move, especially after shrinkage.

Please review the size chart and photos carefully before placing your order. When in doubt, go one size up; I always say it's easier to shrink a gi down than bring it to a tailor to add fabric to make it bigger.

  • Gorilla Fight Gear gis are preshrunk. However, this does not mean your gi will not shrink. Expected shrinkage can be 5-10% in the sleeve length over time when washed in hot water and dried in the dryer, depending on the fabric weave. Pearl weaves, for example, tend to shrink less than gold weaves.
  • We recommend cold wash and hand dry, and never use harsh chemicals like bleach.
  • If your height and weight fall into different categories, we always recommend you go for the larger of the 2 sizes.
  • There are outliers in this case. If you are 5'4" (Small/A1) and 320 lbs (B3XL), I might suggest you go one extra size up in the weight column. In this example, you'd be an S or BXL in height but a B3XL in weight. Because B3XLs are made for people 8-10" taller, they may be too tight on you, so you should go one size up to the B4XL to be safe.
