Many gi companies have come and gone (in fact, some gis that have been featured and reviewed here may no longer be around) while some have stayed along for the ride. Keeping up with who are still around, who have closed shop and who are starting out every single day is still huge work and, surprisingly, still impossible for us to keep up.

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!

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!
