About Us

GiReviews and YOU!

The popularity of brazilian jiu jitsu is a double-edged sword. There is so much information out there that often times it is extremely difficult to find the best gear for you.

There are five different forums to check and often times the reviews on the distributor's website aren't helpful at all!

Unfortunately, most people do not have time to travel to search each website or travel to an actual store like Budovideos to try it for themselves. This is where GiReviews.Net comes in.

If you’re tired of missing deals and coupons and you want to know more about all of the cool brazilian jiu jitsu gis (bjj gis), rashguards, and grappling shorts, sign up for our free mailing list.

This also qualifies you to participate in giveaways only available to GiReviews.Net mailing list members.

 “Thanks for your reply and yup I'm on the list 🙂  I just wanted to let you know that you're doing a hell of a job with your page and the reviews and tips. Once again thank you very much.” – Miguel

“I just wanted to say thanks for the heads up on the presale of the Ring gi.  I would not have known the sale was coming had I not gotten your email.  I was lucky and got one. It's God's work your doing and I thank you for that.” – Paul

“I follow you on FB and I enjoy all the info you have personally provided for me.  You're a good guy, just know that, and your dog's awesome!” – B

The Team

We have three people that spearhead the reviews on our site who together have worn and reviewed over 70 bjj gis :

Brendan Founder

Brendan, the founder of Gireviews.net (Retired)

Brendan was sick of constantly searching for coupons and information about the bjj stuff on the web. It took forever and he never knew who to trust. Which was why GiReviews.net was created. The hope is that the reviews on this site has helped you in your quest to find the best bjj-related item for you. All of Brendans posts and reviews can be found here.
