Raijin Fightwear are a new UK based fightwear brand run by two chaps (LOZ and Gully) that have been heavily promoting themselves via social media and stickers. Yes, stickers. They're very passionate about this, as you'll find out in this exclusive interview with the founders...

Tatami Fightwear recently released the next installment of my series of honey badger inspired BJJ gis. I love wearing it as it fits perfectly for me (size A1) but then I knew it would because it is based on the same cut as the Estilo and the Zero G gis from the Tatami Fightwear range. Here are some photos:

Summary
A sumptuously well thought out and well-fitting gi, the Secret Weapon features a number of lovely stylistic touches and was a joy to wear. And gasp! Here was an A1 gi that had sleeve lengths that were actually perfect (read: long) for me!

I have no business or personal relations with Grips Athletics. This gi was sent to me on the understanding that my report will be based on my own experiences and opinions.

A new BJJ magazine arrived through my doorstep today. It's called Gi Freak and seeks to offer something a little different to the other jiu jitsu magazines currently on the market.

Although thin, it's actually jam packed with cool articles and photos.  I like reading blogs but I generally have to make a conscious effort to sit down and plough through the blog list. Give me a choice between reading something on my computer or a hard copy magazine and I'll go for the mag every time.

Gi Freak is a bit like a blog - only one that has the very best bits on display - and in print media form! I am very impressed with the excellent design, photo editing and generally classy effort shown. Sorry tablet fans, but I just don't warm to digital only e-publications.

I wanted to find out more behind the scenes of Gi Freak so I chatted to the owner, Megan Williams:

Now that the summer is over here in the UK, I thought it was a good time to release a new hooded top design. Here it is! The Chimp and Cross Chokes.

The design is based on my cartoon interpretation of a chimpanzee. The chimp's arms are crossed in the vague formation of a cross choke (a popular and easy fundamental jiu jitsu gi submission). His hands also form that universal BJJ hand sign, the shaka.

It is available now from my Meerkatsu store.

I recently noticed that the gi brand Killer Bee Kimonos offers a custom design and fit service on their website. This seems like the perfect option for people like me who are constantly moaning about ill-fitting off the shelf gis. The option of custom embroidered patches was the icing on the cake that I was not able to not resist. The website ordering process was a marvel too...
