    Size Chart:  Traditional Sizing (See Below)
     
    Company History: Established in 2007 by Professional Fighters, on a mission to create top quality equipment at a reasonable price. Using today’s best raw materials and cutting edge designs Combat Corner Professional has quickly become a contender in the MMA, BJJ & Thai Boxing equipment scene.
     

    Jacket:  The jacket is 100 percent cotton constructed with a 1 piece design to allow strength & comfort. The heavy duty foam filled lapel allows for firm & fast drying times. The jacket skirt is shortened & sleeves are tapered for more of a jiu jitsu cut kimono. Being 100 percent cotton this kimono is super soft & strong and after washing 2-3 times a week for two months it still feels like I just took it out of the package. The logo patches are minimal which allows you to not look like a billboard for the company.


    Pants: The pants are also 100 percent cotton with heavy duty 4 loop draw string design. The 4 loop draw string design helps distribute stress and improve comfort, and also allowing the drawstring to stay in place & not ride up on your hip or give you opponent or partner and extra grip. The knees are heavily reinforced to prevent tears or rips.


    Reinforcements: The pants are reinforced at the openings of the draw strings and over the knees to mid-shin. The jacket has a thick, well made collar and solid stitching also with reinforcement areas in armpit area.


    Shrinkage: Was very minimal, normally since being tall & average sized, I am on the taller end of the sizing chart which makes finding the perfect fit kimono hard. The A3 fit me a little bigger then I would have liked, but fit a lot better than most companies on the market. I tried to shrink it as much as possible but even washing & drying it in warm water & medium heat it did not help. I would recommend trying to wash it in hot water & dry on high heat if you are looking for shrinkage.
     
    Training Time: 2-4 days per week.


    Summary: Amazing value for the price. Combat Corner has put together a perfect kimono for a beginner looking for a kimono that will last for a while. With the kimono being inexpensive and also includes a white belt with it, this allows there consumers to save money & have a kimono which will last

    Special Thanks: To Combat Corner for allowing me to conduct this review & look forward to working with them in the future.
