To be honest, I wasn’t sure how to feel when I first heard about War Tribe.
I heard they had a gi with Kevlar in it.
Like the stuff police use to defend against bullets and stuff?
With its smooth, African styling The Original Zuri Gi is an extremely durable and attractive first effort by a new gi company. This gi is impressively well built, comfortable and well designed.
The Flow Kimonos Classic Series Kimono is a beautiful product. The gi is comfortable, functional and is a great entry to the ever growing Jiu Jitsu gi market.
Submitting a Question
These episodes are going to be super freaking fun, but only if you (and I) don’t act the fool. Sound good? Rad.
Here’s the best way to get on the show:
Please keep your question under one minute in length.
If you have an academy, website and URL, you’re allowed to share it only once during the recording. For example: “Hi, my name is Phil Phillipson. I at Phil’s Jiu Jitsu and Coffee House. You can find us on the web at PhillipsonJitsAndCoffee.com. My question is…”
Spammy, hateful, or unintelligible questions will not be considered. (Please do not go out for happy hour on Friday and then decide to submit a question. Actually please do. It won’t get on the show, but I’ll probably really enjoy listening to it).
I use Speakpipe. They’re super freaking rad. If you’ve got a microphone (or tablet or cell phone), you’re all set!
It might not be possible to get to all of the questions but I will respond to all of them (this may change in the future so now’s the time to ask!).
If your question is related to an event or something else that’s time-sensitive, shoot me an email.
Thanks for taking the time to ask your question!
MVNT is a rad BJJ company based in Australia. Their debut gi is a super soft gold weave with smart branding and a somehwat minimalist design scheme. Overall a solid debut offering.
Vandal Kimonos offers some really top quality gis that, I believe, rival brands charging premium pricing. I still believe that they’re very under the radar in the BJJ community. They have a large social following online, but you don’t see them sponsoring IBJJF tournaments or advertising in all of the BJJ magazines (more on that below).
We’ve raised about $2,300 so far for Tap Cancer Out and I want to hit $5000 this year. Let’s do it!
You can support cancer research by picking up any of the gis on the GiReviews Store over at GiReviews.bigcartel.com
By purchasing you acknowledge that the gis are new, or gently used but in relatively immaculate condition. I’m not selling you junk gis, just BJJ gis that I can no longer selfishly hang onto!
Wow. Just wow. The craftsmanship and quality of my gis, shipped directly from Japan by Alma, was truly incredible right out of the bag.
I am super pumped to be able to share with you guys a quick interview that I did with Deus Fight Co. Being a man that shares their beliefs, I was really interested to hear more about how they started the company, their background, and the MASSIVE amount of charity work that they do. Plus, read to the bottom for a special discount code!
The Progress Jiu Jitsu M6 350 GSM kimono is a great option in the ultra lightweight gi market. This gi has beautiful subtle design points, and uses great fabrics to give a very well rounded product.
This Gi was submitted to me free of charge (by way of gireviews.net) for review. I have never done any work with or for Progress Jiu Jitsu.
Progress Jiu Jitsu is a UK based company that has been out there for a while. They sponsor some really good athletes including the up and coming Garry Tonon, and have been expanding their product line lately.
The Yolo Sponsor Pro 450 has all the features of a premium gi. The styling is unique, and for anyone who finds the gi attractive, this is a great addition to the ever changing and evolving gi market!
