Check out this badass gi

This is pretty cool: The Part Time Grappler had a contest where people sent in their coolest ideas for a gi design and the winning submission was actually turned into a limited run gi by Tatami. The winning design is ‘Pin Up Girl’ and I’d roll with her any time. Is there a rule against total newbs showing up for jiu jitsu class with the coolest gi in class?

    That is fucking kewl. Love the horizontal 4th of July stripes!! Still, the coolest gi I’ve ever seen (& my mancrush) was this:

    I HATE/luv rolling with dudes in Gi’s. I always get choked out of nowhere. Beacuse of all those gi specific chokes

  • fishead says:

    Predator8u: it goes both ways… I find when I roll no-gi that the better grapplers are pulling leglocks out of nowhere simply because there isn’t much of a focus on them until the higher belt ranks… and due to the extra friction caused by the gi-pants – a few of them have been heavily restricted (or forbidden) in competition…

    So yeah… I feel your pain… but I’d rather get collar choked than heelhooked any day.

  • fishead says:

    oh and Ryan… if you do end up getting that gi… we need to meet up and have a roll.

    I can’t believe you didn’t mention the candy stripes. The coolest part of that gi.

  • Simco says:

    It’s not a rule but people who are really insecure will not like you.

  • liamwandi says:

    It was such an amazing experience setting that competition up! The crazy designs we received and the artisitic people we talked to was…humbling!

    Glad you all liked it :) The fact that Tatami Fightwear had the balls to finalize the winning design and make it available to buy is awesome!
