The Basic White Gi, also known as the “Common White Girl,” is a popular subgenre of karate enthusiasts. They first began appearing in the mid-2010s, influenced by the perception of dark craftsmen and riffing. Despite their lack of genuineness, they are recognizable due to their love of coffee shops such as Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts. Listed below are some facts about the Basic White Gi.
The first thing to know is whether the academy you are interested in training at requires a gi. If so, you might want to purchase a rash guard or some other type of protective apparel so you don’t get caught in the crossfire. There are a variety of no-gi training academies, and some will allow t-shirts or even shorts under a gi. However, the majority of academies forbid BJJ practitioners from training in a no-gi environment.
