People are always posting on message boards about what type of gi is best for them and those of us who’ve been on them forever see the same answers time and time again. The thing is, that on each message board, there are popular answers that are not ever mentioned on other boards.

I was first introduced to this gi on Instagram when I started following Justin Dee (Juggs) from Full Metal JiuJitsu. I saw a few photos of it and I was really impressed at how cool it was for just their regular academy gi.Find your favorite Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi at MMA Warehouse
Gear bags are more of a luxury than a necessity, but they are something I love having, and once you’ve had a good one, you just can’t go without. Knowing I have my tape, nail clippers, deodorant, etc etc in one location is a nicety. I pack up my things neatly and go and I’m not carrying nasty, dripping with sweat, Gis in my hands or laying it on my nice clean car seats on the ride home.Check out all available gym bags on MMA Warehouse
UnderOath BJJ is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu apparel brand based out of Ontario, Canada. I saw an advert for one of their eye catching shirts and immediately contacted them trying to find out all of the details about them and their company. They clearly had some great designs but I wanted to find out more, so I sent some questions over to the owner Ryan to get the scoop and UnderOath sent us two shirts to check out. Questions and Answers after the jump.
First, these awesome shirts. This isn’t your average t-shirt from cafepress that was thrown together with a crappy stock graphic and cheap level fruit of the loom t-shirt, it’s well thought out. My favorite aspect of the shirts is actually the material, it’s super soft but strong. I don’t have a single shirt that feels like it.Shop for your favorite BJJ tshirts at MMA Warehouse

One of the greatest struggles many female jiu-jitsu practitioners face is finding a sports bra that will hold up to their tough training sessions. The same bra that can stand up to hours of running or weight-lifting might not be suitable for rolling, so lots of women go through lots of bras (and lots of money) before finding one that works for them. We decided to put an end to that.
When it comes to selecting the best sports bra to wear under your gi or rashguard, the most important things to take into consideration are comfort, coverage, and durability. The last thing you want is to have to pause your roll to make adjustments because something is cutting into you or sliding down too far. And of course, who wants to spend a ton of cash on something that’s going to fall apart after just a few tough classes?
All of these bras have been personally recommended by female jiu-jitsu athletes, so you can be sure that they can handle any submission or position. Check them out and see which ones are right for your body.Shop for Sports Bras and more at MMA Warehouse
I purchased an Atama Leticia Ribeiro Edition gi toward the middle of December after realizing that, without my own washing machine, if I’d be training 3-4 times a week, I’d need more than one gi. My first gi is a Fenom and while I love it, I wanted to see what else might be out there and this one caught my eye.Purchase Atama Leticia Ribeiro 2.0 Gi at Amazon
