As we’re slowly forgetting about the winter (well, unless you’re in Chicago), our minds turn to hot summers and carefree movement. The best thing about the warm weather? You need very little clothes. Plus, the clothes you wear in summer are highly customizable. The one thing everyone wears, regardless of gender, BJJ affiliation or any other group belonging, is a T-shirt. For most people, T-shirts are just clothes, and perhaps, for some, an expression of style, However, for your average, garden-variety grappler, they’re so much more. What are some of the best BJJ T-Shirts you can get this summer? We have the answers as well as review fo the very best BJJ themed T-shirts for 2019!
Unless your level of dedication to BJJ is of John Danaher levels, you most likely wear T-shirts. If on the off-chance, you’re a fan of rashguards, just like Mr. Danaher, we got you covered as well. However, for all of us casual BJJ addicts, a themed T-Shirt is probably as far as we’ll take it. Okay, perhaps a closet full of them, but that’s it, I swear! Joking aside, a BJJ T-shirt is a great way to express your style, affiliation, be comfortable and even train.
Of course, if you’re a professional athlete, most of your everyday apparel is going to be determined by sponsors and the like. For all of us mortals out there, though, there are countless options when it comes to Jiu-Jitsu T-shirts. But what are the best BJJ T-shirts you can get? It’s a seasonal thing, of course, but we have you covered for this upcoming summer, at the very least!
The reason we grapplers love our BJJ T-shirts so much is that they clearly express our identity, even when we can’t speak about Jiu-Jitsu as much as we want. Or at all, unless we don’t mind risking to alienate everyone that’s close to us. A BJJ t-shirt is a great way of showing your borderline manic dedication to the sport. Moreover, it is a great way to show affiliation, if that is your thing. Let’s face it, even if you’re a fan of general BJJ T-shirts, you’ll still go for your academy one whenever you’re going to be in the company of other grapplers. Whether it is a competition, a camp or you’re in the audience of a super fight, affiliation T-shirts are “mandatory”. Completely understandable, as it should be.
In terms of academy affiliation T-shirts, we can’t really help. It is up to you to choose the best option for you, from those that are on offer. However, when it comes to “general” BJJ T-shirts, it’s open season out there. you have everything on offer, from basic stuff to mind-blowing designs and witty slogans. Or a combination of all of them. The thing is that you need to look for quality and comfort as well as design. After all, once you choose a BJJ T-shirt, you’d expect it to last you at least a few years.
The best BJJ T-shirts are those that tick all of the above boxes. they’re comfortable to wear daily, or even train in them if you so desire. They offer a great variety in terms of color, and design. Of course, all of the T-shirts in our guide are very affordable and come at exquisite prices. All in all, we got the best deals to get you ready for the summer of 2019!

Comfort And Style
Now that we got you (and your pet) kitted up for summer, let’s talk comfort. In terms of BJJ apparel, what grapplers really look for, is primarily comfort. There’s a double need for this – both for carefree daily movement and training needs. Many people, me included, do like to spend as much time as possible in BJJ apparel. this means wearing it while you train as well. Plus, there are those, (Danaher fans look away) that actually can’t stand rashguards. For them, a comfortable BJJ T-shirt is the best way to extend the length of their Gis during training. Plus, a comfortable T-shirt means that once it’s past it’s prime, it can easily turn into your favorite sleeping T-shirt.
In terms of style, there’s hardly a best BJJ T-shirt out there that can provide prudent information for everyone. The style is a highly individual thing that nobody can guide you through.
