Selecting the right Jiu-Jitsu gi isn't just about finding something fashionable to wear on the mats – it's a crucial decision that can impact your training experience. Your gi is your armor, tool, and second skin. Therefore, understanding the importance of choosing the right gi is fundamental to every practitioner's journey in Jiu Jitsu.

Key factors to look for while choosing a gi:





Comfort - A proper-fitting gi enhances your training experience. Ease of movement will provide safer training and increased confidence. Please note that all gi brands have their own sizing charts! Refer to each specific brand's sizing to ensure you choose the correct fit!

Durability - The material and weave of your gi will determine the durability, weight, and overall performance. A lighter gi is preferable for quick movements, while a heavier gi is challenging for opponents to establish grips.

Maintenance - Check to make sure whether your gi is pre-shrunk or not. This will affect your sizing. Gis also require a delicate wash cycle and to be air dried to avoid shrinkage.

Cost - Most Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gis cost $60-$250 on average. Jiu-jitsu gis differ from the gis used in other martial arts such as karate or taekwondo because jiu-jitsu gis are made to be grabbed and pulled on.

Ultimately, the perfect Jiu-Jitsu gi is the one that you're happy to wear and gets you to class.
