I just saw the new gi rules. The sleeves now have to reach the wrist, and when the lapels are crossed, there can be no more than 10cm between the top cross point and the top of the sternum.
Is there any reason for this? Does the 5cm on the wrist make that much difference? And still the 20cm overlap at the waist. Will the sternum measurement make a different?
Just means that everybody that competes has to get all new suits. Trying to aid the manufacturers who paid their fees?
