How To Fold Your Judo Gi (The Right Way)
Your Judo Gi is the tool of your trade and without it, Judo would not be possible so we should treat our kit with respect.
You probably spent a lot of money on your new Judo Gi but you throw it inside your kit bag, all screwed up after training. Wouldn't it be both better and more appealing to give your Judo Gi some love and appreciation by folding it up before and after training?
Sadly so many Judo and BJJ players do not know how to fold their Gi so we decided to put together a video and a break down post so you have no excuses.
After a few minutes you will have this skill mastered and your Gi will always look great instead of being full of creases.
Ready, let's begin with the video:
Now if that was too fast follow our step by step guide below and you will soon have it mastered.
