The Ultimate Jiu-Jitsu Gi Guide

3 min read

It's impossible to ignore the “uniforms” people wear when you first enter a BJJ dojo. The brazilian jiu jitsu gi is essential to Jiu-Jitsu's practice and perhaps even a distinguishing feature of Gentle Art. However, many questions will arise after witnessing the Gis and, of course, deciding that you need one. That's right. If you have any inquiries about bjj gi for sale, here is the solutions.


How to Choose a Jiu-Jitsu Gi


Before beginning training, you will need to accept that you cannot use a single bjj gi for all your drills. You should have at least two bjj gis for sale if you intend to work out more than twice a week. Let's take a peek at the wardrobe of a “typical” BJJ fighter.


The Ultimate Jiu-Jitsu Gi Guide


  • The First Gi

Get something that won't break the bank for your first Gi. Since you haven't yet decided whether you prefer lighter or heavier weight Gis, what weave makes you feel the most comfortable, and there's a lot to figure out in jiu jitsu gi size chart and shrinkage, it's best to start with a medium-heavy, medium-quality Gi that is both economical and flexible. A 450 GSM pearl weave that is the right size for you (not petite, standard, or tall) is a good place to begin your search. In addition, stick to simple colours (even if they aren't IBJJF-approved) and save the elaborate and unconventional patterns for later. The use of bjj rash guards is mandatory.


  • A Competitive Gi

When choosing a kids jiu jitsu Gi for a tournament, colour is the most obvious factor. There is little diversity, as you only have three choices. But there are additional factors that should be considered. There is a significant correlation between the tightness of a person's grasp and the weave and durability of their clothing. In addition, the sandpaper-like texture of the Gi is more likely to irritate the stiffer it is. There is no way around weaving yet again. You do your weigh-ins while wearing your Gi and jiu jitsu belts, so the heavier they are, the more you'll need to lose.


  • An Everyday Gi

This jiu jitsu gi will quickly become your go-to. This is your favourite Gi to wear. That implies you have a firm grasp on the ideal fabric for you in terms of weight, weave, dimensions, and style. Your training Gi could be the same one you wear for competition or something altogether different. Refrain from fretting as long as you're feeling good in it; this is the kind of Gi you want to stock up on now that you've found your ideal Gi. This is a free-for-all, so do whatever you like.


  • The Travel Gi

Minimalist in bulk; ideally ultra-minimalist. The ideal choice is a ripstop jacket if you can pull it off. They are incredibly lightweight and sturdy while still compact and easy to fold up and store in a carry-on bag.




The hardest part of getting into Gi is deciding which one to buy. Given the variety available, it is more difficult to identify the ideal Gi for your needs. Because of marketing, you'll be led to believe that whatever Gi you buy is the ideal one for you. Do your homework before purchasing a new fuji bjj gi, as not all are created equal.
