Combat Corner has made a splash in the gi market lately, mainly by selling their products as standard “gym gis.” By this I mean they offer their gis wholesale to gyms and then gyms sell them to new students. I recently had the opportunity to review one of Combat Corner’s higher end gis, the Eco 4.0. This gi exceeded all expectations during its review period!Get your very own Combat Corner Eco 4.0 gi at Amazon!
We are very excited to have Sal, and his company, Habrok Sports with us today to have a bit of a chat about his vision, drive and passion for starting a new BJJ brand. We bounce around a bit, but I hope his message comes across loud and clear. The guy has a heart of gold and a real passion for BJJ and the manufacturing business.

First, super-huge thanks to five super awesome women reminded me that it’s really hard to find decent ladies (women’s) BJJ gi on the internet.
Special thanks to Ayanthi who has done our first women’s gi review.
So I did some homework. And below I present to you a fairly comprehensive list of how to do your women’s gi shopping as well as my top recommendations from different brands. I’ve tried to organized them by price list as well.
If I’ve forgotten any, please post them in the comments below!Compare prices on the best women’s gis available at MMA Warehouse!
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!
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!Compare prices on your favorite BJJ belt brands!
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.Find your own Hayabusa gi at MMA Warehouse!
Venum is a pretty cool Brazilian fight company. They are based in Brazil and have offices in New York. They sponsor fighters such as Frankie Edgar, Lyoto Machida, and Sean Sherk.
They have a REALLY nice website and are very active on their Twitter account, should you ever need to get ahold of them.
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.Find your favorite lightweight gi at MMA Warehouse!
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.
TUFROL is a new company that has some nice designs and is working on developing their own brand of Gis. Like many companies, TUFROL is out of California.
