How your BJJ gi is made

How your BJJ gi is made

It seems like everybody knows a guy who went to Pakistan to see the gi factories and he said…

Well, let’s cut out all the speculation.

Just in case you were ever wondering how a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gi is made or what the inside of a Gi “factory” in Pakistan looks like, you’ll enjoy the photos below.  My overall estimation is that very good craftsmanship can be done with very limited resources.  Thanks to Nick from OSS! Fightwear for letting us have this glimpse into the whole process.

Lean and lanky? Here are the best BJJ gis for you!

The Best Brazillian JJ Belt

BJJ Belt: Whose is best?

This question pops up from time to time for various reasons.

Some people replace their bjj belt, some instructors are looking for bjj belts to buy for their students, and some students buy their own bjj belts.

While it isn’t a gi review necessarily, we’ll start by looking at what other people have to say about their bjj belt!

Hayabusa Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gis

Hayabusa Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gis

About Hayabusa Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gis

Hayabusa is actually a Japanese word for the Peregrine Falcon. This falcon is a predator best known for its power, speed and strength — the very same attributes that are possessed by the combat athletes that make use of their products.

Hayabusa is mostly known for their MMA clothing, but they also make a pretty nice BJJ gi.  Their gis are made entirely of ripstop fabric, but their most unique feature is that they have a stretch inseam similar to most mma shorts.  This very unique feature sets Hayabusa apart from other brands.

They also dabble in contrast stitching, but their gis tend to be very pricey.

2017 Guide: Top 7 Lightweight Gis for Summer!

2017 Guide: Top 7 Lightweight Gis for Summer!

Well friends, it’s about that time of the year again.  Time for some good old summer BJJ training.

But I’ll level with you.  I’m about 6’1″ and about 200lbs. (on a good day).

I sweat. A lot.  And there isn’t anything more uncomfortable than training in a thick heavy gi during the summer.

With that in mind, we wanted to highlight a few of the best lightweight / summer gis that are out right now.

Keiko Raca Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi Reviews

Gi Review: Keiko Raca Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

About Keiko Raca Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gis 

In 1989, Keiko Raca Kimonos was a sportswear manufacturing company.  For the next 16 years, Keiko Raca made items for Mizuno and other brands.  In 1995, they started out on their own and created the brand we know today.  Keiko Raca offers slimmer fitting gis than other companies and sponsors some of the top names in BJJ  (many from the Alliance team) such as Cobrinha, Gabby Garcia, Tarsis Humphreys and Sergio Moraes.  Even though they aren’t heavily marketed in the United States, they continue to be a standard, popular gi in many other parts of the world.  Definitely a solid gi and kimono company.

Albino & Preto Gi Review

Gi Review: Albino & PretoAlbino & Preto Bio

The Albino & Preto brand is currently being headed up by Bear from Shoyoroll.  Their first gi, given the picture below, appears to be a white gi (they’ve also added a black gi) with a green contrast similar to the original Lucky gis and the Subculture Wasabi.

Many have speculated that Albino & Preto will be producing gis in a similar method to SYR, but nothing has been confirmed.  As more information comes out, this page will be updated!

Vulkan Ultra Light Gi Review

Gi Review: Vulkan Ultra Light

by Chino

Overview

I know that Vulkan is extremely well known, and probably does not need an additional evaluation, however i wanted give my take anyways.

Pre-roll review:

My school is really 90% Vulkan equipment, so I was already pretty sure what to expect so far as appearance, but nobody has the blue Vulkan Ultra Light. Very razor-sharp! This really is only my second uniform, along with my first as being a Gameness Pearl. The very first thing I figured was “holy crap, this thing is soft!” I don’t know if I’m washing my Gameness wrong or something like that, however that thing is actually beyond rigid.
