I needed a standby gi for when my “favorite” gis were dirty, wet, both, or in the wash. Of course I took to the internet and on one of the main grappling forums, a poster had started a discussion about the high quality gis being sent out by Padilla & Sons (Click here to visit their website and online store). He mentioned the awesome pricing for a gi of this quality while also bringing up the outstanding customer service he had received. He wrote how he had some questions about his gi, called the number, and basically Mrs. Padilla answered. He said she hooked him up and solved his issues quickly. So I checked them out.Great Finds on BJJ Gis and other Apparel at MMA Warehouse!
The submission FC light gi is a fairly nice gi at the lower end of the bjj gi price spectrum. It offers a decent quality, further enhanced by its nearly $100 price tag. If you’re a gi buyer on a budget, but still want a decent gi, then this is the gi for you.Shop for Submission FC Light Gi on Amazon
A product of Hatashita International, the Reevo Aerolight II is an innovative product with the unique feature of mesh venting in its underarms. This is an attractive and durable product that can make a fine addition to your gi collection.

Tatami Fightwear is a very popular British, and now global, brand and the Estilo is one of their most popular models. In the past we’ve reviewed quite a few of their gis, including the Tatami Fightwear Enson Inoue Signature Gi, Tatami Fightwear Estilo 3.0, Tatami Estilo 3.0 Ladies Gi, Honey Badger Gi, Tatami Fightwear Zero G V2 Gi Review, Terere Signature Gi, and the Zero G Lightweight Gi.Check out the Latest BJJ Gi Collection from Tatami at MMA Warehouse
Nicole Kirk has also written a review for the Women’s fit of the Estilo 4.0. Click here if you want to skip to her review.
This review is totally false and full of lies. Tatami Fightwear has promised me an endless supply of scotch and Reese’s Peanut Butter cups in return for a positive review and I have happily obliged as long as they promised to also send me a copy of every Pride dvd to date and a bunch of stuff out of the SkyMall catalogs that you get on airplanes. On with the reviews!
A very solid Kimono in construction and looks
X-Guard is one of those companies that dove right in to every aspect of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu community as soon as they got in on the market. They pay close attention to their customers and because of that, have been moving more and more Gi’s. Folks like Vinny Magalhaes and Rodrigo Teixeira can be seen sporting X-Guard gear. With cool freebies and solid quality, you can’t go wrong with an X-Guard Kimono.
My first thoughts out of the bag were that the gi:
This new offering from Ronin Brand is very ambitious and definitely shows a big move outside of the standard Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gi market and into the market for more stylish BJJ kimonos.Shop for Ronin Brand Navy Samurai Gi at Amazon
I was all set to order my Scramble 1chiban. I had hyped it up for a month here on the site and I was so excited to get one.
I logged onto Budovideos at the appointed release time, put an A3 in my cart, started filling in all of my important details: address, credit card info, etc.
The whole process took maybe 3 minutes.
Which was about a minute too late.
2 minutes. It took 2 minutes for them to sell out!Get the Best Deals on BJJ Gis Today at MMA Warehouse
When you’re a woman who trains jiu-jitsu, it can be ridiculously hard to find a quality gi that fits right. Lots of female BJJ practitioners can get away with wearing men’s gis, but you have a large bust, narrow waist, or wide hips, that’s not always possible.
If you’re struggling to find a gi that will stand up to your intense rolls while still fitting your feminine form, we’re here to help. We’ve found some of the best women’s gis around to help take the headache out of shopping for new gear. And if style is important to you, don’t worry: there’s something out there for both those who like a little flair and those who prefer their gis with no frills.
All of the gis below have been tested by our honest reviewers, so you can be sure that they’ll stand up to all the rolling you can manage. Take a look for yourself and see which one would suit you best.Get the Best Deals on Women’s Gis at MMA Warehouse
What is the most durable / toughest / strongest gi for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)?
At first glance, this is a silly question. This is because the strongest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi is often times not a BJJ gi at all. It’s a judogi.
While they may look alike, there are some significant difference between Judo gis and BJJ gis. Typically, people don’t wear a BJJ gi for judo, or vice versa. In official competitions, you must wear the appropriate gi for that type of competition.
The nature of Judo and BJJ is similar, but different. Although both are jacketed grappling styles, the sport is opposite. Judo is primarily concerned with throwing and standup grappling, whereas BJJ is essentially focused on grappling on the ground. Therefore, the gis are constructed to meet the needs of their respective fighter.
