A lot of people are probably going to scoff at this deal when they first see it. But if you do the math, it's really not that bad.
Shoyoroll GUMA Reserve Membership price: 379
Minus cost of the gi: 165 (estimated cost based on batch 11 price)
Minus cost of two t-shirts: 50
Minus cost of sweatshirt: 50
Minus cost of gear bag and patches: 50
Total remaining: $64
Now, let's say you are also going to buy two SYR gis and a rashguard during the next calendar year. The 10% discount will save you 10% of $380 (estimated cost for two gis and a rashguard), giving you another $38 in savings.
Total cost of Shoyoroll GUMA Reserve Membership: $26
The great equalizer is that all of these gis are going to be super rare and valuable and to gi collectors, worth quite a bit. If for some reason, you aren't happy with the Shoyoroll GUMA Reserve Membership, you can always sell some of the rare stuff and make your money back.
Frankly, I think it sounds like a really cool concept and Shoyoroll is the first to try it, so I'll definitely be grabbing a Shoyoroll GUMA Reserve Membership on December 24th.
Im in but im a GI whore lol.
ME TOO. I think this site is a dead giveaway from that. Hopefully, we can get some cool info for all of the people who didn’t get the membership for whatever reason.
I scoff. I doublescoff. 🙂 All that cash means a few privates, or airfare to Pans and Worlds…
You’re such a hater! But I agree. It really is a polarizing event in the bjj community.
But I think it appeals more to those who are not competition-oriented (like me :)), otherwise, you are 100% correct that it would be better spent becoming better at BJJ.
Thanks for reading the site Georgette!
I am glad there are more mma/gi companies now. While the gi market is becoming saturated and more competitive, it is much better for the consumer. That is why I did not follow through with starting my own gi company at the moment.
