Isami Kimonos BJJ Gi Reviews

Isami BJJ Kimonos


Isami Bio

Isami is a pretty cool brand that hails from Japan.  Most people have ordered from in order to get their goods in the past, but now a lot of different sites carry them.  They were one of the flashies gis we had ever seen when we first discovered them a few years ago, but now there are a lot of very ‘bling’ gis on the market.  They still make an excellent double weave gi that is as strong as a double weave, but without sacrificing weight and stiffness.   They are exceptionally high quality kimonos, but cut a bit different due to their japanese style.

One of the best features is that they allow you to order pants separate from the jacket.  If you buy from Chokesports, you can expect some excellent customer service.

From every Isami gi that I have ever seen, the taping and patches are fantastic.

Walter says April 28, 2012

Anyone know anything about Isami Gi? Compared to Fujji, koral, Atama. Isami Gi is better or worse? And about size, because isami’s size are diferent. I want to buy an Isami Gi but do not know my right size.
Like 1L,2, 2L, 3, 3L, 4, 4L, 5, 5L, 6…… My Bjj gi is a A2 Koral MkM (I’m 184 pounds, 5’9)
What’s size is mine?

    Hi Walter.
    It seems like you are in between Isami sizes 4L and 5. At you can order jacket and pants in different sizes for a perfect fit. They also have a very detailed size chart online. Can’t go wrong with Isami Gis!

where is the review? i was hoping for pictures of the gi being worn, how it fits, and how heavy it is. i would say this is too vague to be considered a review.

    I tried sending these to the email address you used, but it appears to be fake.

    I’ve noticed your past 3 comments on the blog weren’t just you e-fellating me about how awesome the gi, or my review, was/is. You actually want quality info and aren’t afraid to ask for it.

    I appreciate that. Thanks for being aggressive about it.

    Thanks for taking the time to post it as I’m always trying to improve the site.
