The Best BJJ Gi Brands – Quick Overview
Here’s a table with the best BJJ gi brands and companies. I’ve separated them into three categories: premium, solid and budget gi companies. All of these brands are good, but you should know that you get what you pay for.
(If I were to make a comparison to the car market, the premium category is Mercedes, solid is Ford and budget is Toyota. A comparison to my BJJ Submission rankings would be that premium is choke from the back, solid is armbar from closed guard and budget is Americana.)
|BJJ Gi Brand||Quality|
The Best BJJ Gi Brand: Shoyoroll
ShoyoRoll is the luxury gi brand of Brazilian jiu jitsu. All their gis are limited edition and released in drops, just like many streetwear products. ShoyoRoll is known for spectacular designs, great quality and high-profile partnerships with competitors and coaches. They also own the record for the most expensive BJJ gi in the world.
BEST USA Gi Brand: Origin
Origin is Jocko Willink’s company that makes high-quality GIs that are made in the USA. They deliver great quality BJJ gis at a price tag that’s above average but not outrageous. They started a few years ago and are quickly claiming more and more market share with their premium gi offering.

Europen BJJ GI Brand: Tatami Fightwear
The first solid gi company we will discuss is Tatami Fightwear. Tatami Fightwear is a company that is based in the United Kingdom and is known for making good quality Brazilian jiu-jitsu GIs. They’re my favorite BJJ brand because the first gi I ever bought was their Tatami Nova Gi, and in general I think they offer the best BJJ gis for beginners. I also think it’s also one of the best British BJJ brands, and in fact one of the best BJJ brands in Europe.
GoldBJJ is a good all around BJJ gi company based in the USA. It’s not a huge brand, but what they do, they do well. Their Aero Weave gi is my favorite lightweight BJJ gi which I wear at competitions, while traveling and during hot weather.
RollAmongUs, previously known as LankyFightGear, is an American BJJ gi brand that specializes in gis for the tall jiu jitsu practitioner. In my opinion, they make the best BJJ gis for tall and skinny people. They’re also now expanding to gis for regular people.
Sanabul is a company that offers budget-friendly Brazilian jiu-jitsu GIs. Their products are made with quality materials and construction, and they offer a variety of styles and colors to choose from. Their most popular gi model is the Sanabul Essential Brazilian jiu-jitsu GI, which is the best cheap Brazilian jiu jitsu gi in my opinion.
FUJI Sports is a company that offers high-quality Brazilian jiu-jitsu GIs. Their products are made with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship, and they offer a variety of styles and colors to choose from. Some of their popular GI models include the Brazilian jiu-jitsu Gi, the premium weave Brazilian jiu-jitsu Gi, and the competition heavyweight Brazilian jiu-jitsu GI.
Kingz Kimonos is another company that offers high-quality Brazilian jiu-jitsu GIs. Their products are made with premium materials and construction, and they offer a variety of styles and colors to choose from. Some of their popular GI models include the Kingz Light Brazilian jiu-jitsu Gi, the Kingz Signature Series Brazilian jiu-jitsu Gi, and the Kings Slim Fit Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi.
Venum is a company that offers high-quality martial arts gear, including Brazilian jiu-jitsu GIs. Their products are made with premium materials and construction, and they offer a variety of styles and colors to choose from. Some of their popular GI models include the Venum Challenger 2.0 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi, the Venum Elite Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi, and the Venum Contender Lightweight Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi.
Atama is a well-known and respected brand for Brazilian jiu-jitsu GIs. They make high quality GIs that are very durable. Additionally, their designs are always unique and stylish. They also sponsor a lot of female BJJ athletes and have a special line of BJJ gis for women.
I wanted to throw in a few small BJJ brands in this list as well. They have some cool BJJ gi designs, and they’re quality is good. But, since they’re a niche BJJ brand, their gis come at a slight premium.
Gameness is a decent brand for Brazilian jiu-jitsu Gis. They are slightly more towards the budget end of things, but I own one of their gis and it’s holding up well.I wouldn’t recommend this as your main Brazilian jiu-jitsu gi brand but if you see a good deal you can snap it up.
Hayabusa is a well-known and respected brand in the Brazilian jiu-jitsu community. They make high-quality GIs that are built to last. Hayabusa GIs are also lightweight and breathable, making them perfect for training and competition.
