Wow it’s already Thanksgiving time! And with that, Black Friday and all the deals that come along with it!
We have a great sale going on right now. Why is it great? Here’s three reasons:
All orders over $100, which covers nearly every gi on the site right now, ship for free. I’ll pay the shipping for these orders with coupon code “FREESHIPPINGUSA” at checkout. This deal is for US addresses.

We’ve got fresh gis coming in! They should be arriving in a week and you can get your pre-order in now. These are custom designed gis with plenty of features that’ll knock your socks off.
First, they’re all high quality gold weave gis. There’s no skimping here — this is the gold standard material for kimonos.
Second, these gis were designed by the original founder of GiReviews.net. The design features of these kimonos incorporate some of the best ideas seen across the entire industry. With the price of gis often being higher than $100, it’s hard for other places to design gis like these. How would you make a kimono if you had seen them all?
Finally, we’ve got some child sizes coming in with the same awesome features that our adult gis have, and at really respectable prices. Kids grow fast and there’s no reason to go into debt trying to help them have the best. I’ve tried to make this problem approachable with OK! Kimonos, and I hope it comes across.
You won’t find another gi with this level of quality at a similar price. We’re a lean, one-man gi store machine with low overhead costs and a lot of ideas. So if you want to get your hands on one, pre-order a lightweight gi or a super durable training gi today.
There’s a limited total number of kimonos available — not as a scare tactic, but because you all know how much space a couple gis takes up. They’re being made available as first-come, first-serve, so pre-orders get the top priority for shipping.
I expect to be able to deliver these next week (Nov 28th), so stay tuned!
To quote Wikipedia: The guard is a ground grappling position in which one combatant has their back to the ground while attempting to control the other combatant using their legs. Under most circumstances the goal is to keep our guard closed [click to continue…]
My name is Art Good, and I’m hooked on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
I’m a 43 year old pastor who has followed the BJJ world for several years.
I vaguely remember the first time I mentioned taking Jiu Jitsu classes to my spouse. If I remember correctly, and I think I do, her initial response was, “Don’t hurt yourself.”
Since then, my spouse’s reaction to Jiu Jitsu has been different. It is important to her because it is important to me.

Takedowns can be tough if you’re fighting in the street.

Have you ever wondered if you could do BJJ purely on technique? What’s the most important physical attributes that you need for rolling?
In the world of martial arts and Jiu Jitsu in particular we deal with people of all body shapes and sizes. We learn how to deal with these attributes and how to utilize our own to our advantage.
There are four main attributes that can make a difference in how someone will train and which player will do better than another.
One of the best things I ever did that helped me grow in my journey of Jiu Jitsu was make a flow chart. It’s really easy if you are keeping a notebook, too.
When you first start out when you are rolling, it can be difficult to remember what to do and where to go.
“What do I do with my hands?”
Tai Lopez gave a T.E.D talk that amazed me. He presented a concept that’s relevant to Jiu Jitsu, business, and life.
He spoke of the “Law of 33%”.
This is a law of self-development. [click to continue…]
We all go through this jiu-jitsu plateau phase of: “What now?”
Do you feel stuck? Is your game slowing down? Feel like you’re not sure what to do next?
In Jiu Jitsu we rely heavily on our partners in order to progress.
We must have a partner in order to learn moves and get timing down both in sparing and in class. [click to continue…]
