Hi all, I'm going to take my first proper Judo lesson this Wednesday, so if you don't mind, I'm going to pester you all with some dumb n00b questions until I get to grips with it My first question; my friend's husband does Judo, and he showed me his Judogi. Its way thicker than even my heaviest Karate gi. He told me a lot of Judo move's are done from the gi, so it needs to be thick so it can hold a person's bodyweight without ripping. Will my Karategi be able to cope with a Judo class, or should I wear something else? I don't expect to be doing much in the way of throws and chokes. This lead's me on to my 2nd question, what exactly does a newbie Judo class entail. What can I except to do?
