I just got a Question in about the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu uniforms.
: What is the difference between a Gi and a Kimono?
Gi or Kimono
Its very simple. In Brazilian jiu-jitsu, the uniform is more often called a Gi. But Portuguese speaking countries still refer to it as a kimono. Gi or Kimono it is all the same thing to me.
Kimono is a traditional Japanese garment The word “kimono” means a “thing to wear”. Kind of funny I think. I hope this answered you question.
