Yeah, just like jiu jitsu, judo is historically predicated on the fact that in a self-defence/hand-to-hand combat type of situation, your opponent is probably going to be wearing some kind of clothing. So for practical purposes it's useful to know how to grab onto that and use it to your advantage when throwing or trying to choke them. And the jackets (judo-gis) have to be pretty thick and bulky or else they would just tear really quickly.

It's been theorized that this is why you don't see a lot of high level judoka making the transition to MMA (at least, compared to wrestlers, for instance); it's difficult to make the transition since they're so used to being able to grip onto clothing.

Interesting, didn't know any of that (have never watched judo before). I like the idea they base it around, though.

When you wear a gi you will find it's rather heavy compared to other cloths.
