I was given the opportunity to review two different gis from Club Boost, a very active company. The two gis that I reviewed are the Club Boost Comp Gi in white and the Club Boost Samurai Gi in black. This is a review of the Black Samurai Gi; I will cover both a review of the gi as well as some contrast and comparison between it and the Comp gi. [click to continue…]

OK Kimonos has added some pretty slick-looking spats to their arsenal, and after a few weeks testing ours on the mats… we love ‘em. The orange & camo colorway looks great, every detail fully sublimated into the fibers of the stretch fabric. OK uses a soft, high-end polyester/spandex blend that stretches easily with your body’s movements, without compromising their overall compression around your legs.
The tapered fit ensures the bottom cuff openings don’t loosen up or stretch out after some wear ‘n tear, while the waist is equipped with a wide elastic core for the sort of steady fit you need with spats. Also equipped with an internal drawstring for easy adjustments.
S: 130-145 lbs
M: 145-165 lbs
L: 160-190 lbs
XL: 190-215 lbs
2XL: 210-240 lbs
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.
