Training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a rashguard and shorts is undoubtedly a lot of fun. No-Gi training tends to be faster paced, more explosive and dynamic compared to Gi Jiu-Jitsu. However, if you truly want to train Jiu-Jitsu, you have to include some gi training. Training “traditionally” is a must for everyone truly immersed in the Gentle Art. The Gi offers a completely new dimension to grappling with a lot more opportunities, both offensive and defensive. Even if you train mostly No-Gi, you’ll need at least one Gi for occasional use. If you train with the Gi, then you always need a new Gi. Since Gis do not come cheap, we have the ultimate opportunity for you – a BJJ Gi Sale featuring some incredibly high-quality kimonos!
I’m a person who enjoys No-Gi grappling a lot, even more than Gi I daresay. Still, I train with the Gi regularly and I have that Gi-buying bug. However, that bug doesn’t get a lot of food, given Gi prices. Well, at least the prices of those Gis that are worth having, anyway. So, I keep my eyes peeled for any kind of Gi sale that’ll offer some high-end kimonos for a fraction of the price. Doing that for years made me quite the aficionado at spotting a BJJ Gi sale. To that extent, I put together the ultimate BJJ Gi sale that’s on right now! So don’t overthink it, choose your favorite option and treat yourself to a brand new BJJ Gi!
The Jiu-Jitsu Uniform
Back in feudal Japan, the Samurai wore the Gi as a uniform underneath their armor. As war waging unarmed combat morphed into the sport, the armor got discarded and the Gi came into focus. White Gis fro everyone promoted equality, upheld the old tradition of training in a uniform and even had a practical use. Judo’s Dr. Jigoro Kano defined today’s Gi structure, with the purpose of using sleeves, lapels, and collars to your advantage. As belts got introduced, people also got a rank that was easily distinguishable on white Gis.
Modern Gis come not only Optimized for training, but also in countless design varieties. The basic colors nowadays are white, blue and black, but there are plenty of other options, both plain and multicolored. Moreover, Gis nowadays are covered in patches, some generic and others down to the individual grappler. This allows you to customize a Gi much more than you can a rashguard, at least in terms of style.
Structurally speaking, Gis are usually made of cotton (jackets) and a polyester/cotton blend (pants). There are different weave patterns that produce Gis of different quality. Generally, the more complex the weave, the more durable, but heavier, the Gi is going to be. Colors allowed in the competition are black, blue and white. Most high-quality Gis are perfectly safe to wash In a machine, but with some, you should expect some shrinkage. Sizes come in a very wide range for both adult and children’s Gis.

The Financial Side Of BJJ
Financially speaking, BJJ can really put a strain on your budget. Some of the expenses that you and expect on a monthly basis include your academy’s fee and transportation money, perhaps even some supplements. Other expenses will require you to get a Gi, and if you train more than a couple of times a week, you’ll need more than one. A solid rashguard to wear under the Gi is also a must, extending the life of your Gi and offering you the option to also train No-Gi. Speaking of No-Gi, a pair or two of grappling shorts are also going to wiggle themselves into your budget. Throw in the cost of entry fee, travel and accommodation during competitions, and you really have a lot of math to do.
Financially speaking, an option to save money opens up other opportunities. For example, saving while getting a Gi, might give you more finances to compete, or pursue things outside of BJJ. The kimonos that we feature in the Ultimate BJJ Gi Sale of 2019 are all high-quality products that will not only give you quality but also provide you with future stability. Getting a Gi you can wear for years means you won’t need to worry about that particular expense for a very long time!
Getting stuff on sale is always a smart move, regardless if it BJJ Gis or socks that we’re talking about. However, given the prices of BJJ kimonos, getting one on the cheap is a real bonus. Still, getting the highest quality Gis at a fraction of their original price is only available during a BJJ Gi Sale. Check out this spring’s best BJJ Gi Sale and roll right into 2019 all geared up!
