Caring for Your Gi

Your Gi is your armor on the mat, and like any piece of equipment, it requires proper care to maintain its quality and longevity. Here are some tips for taking care of your Gi:


  1. Wash After Every Use: This might seem obvious, but it's worth repeating. Washing your Gi after every training session is crucial for hygiene and to prevent the buildup of bacteria and odors.
  2. Use Cold Water: Washing your Gi in cold water can help prevent shrinkage and color fading. Most Gis are pre-shrunk, but they can still shrink a bit if washed in hot water.
  3. Avoid Bleach: Bleach can weaken the fabric of your Gi and cause it to tear more easily. Instead, use a gentle detergent and consider adding a cup of vinegar to the wash to help remove odors.
  4. Air Dry: If possible, avoid using the dryer as the heat can cause your Gi to shrink. Instead, hang your Gi to dry in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight.
  5. Ironing: Ironing your Gi can help keep it looking crisp and professional. However, be sure to use a low heat setting to avoid damaging the fabric.

Remember, a well-cared-for Gi not only lasts longer but also shows respect for your training partners and the art of Jiu-Jitsu itself.

Tip: Regular inspection of your Gi, particularly in areas prone to wear and tear, can help you catch any issues early. Reinforced stitching, goes a long way in enhancing durability. Still, it's important to be proactive in your Gi's care.

How do I choose my Gi for Jiu Jitsu?

Choosing a Gi involves considering several factors, including the weave, weight, fit, and durability. Lightweight Gis like the Progress Women's Featherlight Lightweight Competition BJJ Gi are great for training sessions and competitions, while the reinforced stitching on the Kingz The One Ladies BJJ Gi ensures durability.

Fit
A well-fitted Gi is crucial for comfort and performance. Women's Gis are designed with a different cut to accommodate the female body shape.
Material The material of the Gi affects its durability and comfort. Most Gis are made of cotton or a cotton blend.
Weave The weave determines the thickness and weight of the Gi. Different weaves offer a balance between durability and breathability.
Collar A thicker collar makes it harder for opponents to grip. However, it can also be heavier.
Pants The pants should be comfortable and durable. Some Gis come with reinforced knee areas for extra durability.
Design While the design doesn't affect performance, it's a way to express your personal style on the mat.

Understanding Women's Gi Sizes: A Guide

In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), women's gis typically come in sizes labeled F1, F2, F3, F4, and sometimes additional sizes like F0 and F5. These sizes are specifically tailored to fit the female physique. Here's a general breakdown of what these sizes typically represent:


– F0: This size is often designed for very petite or younger practitioners. It's smaller than F1, catering to those who find F1 a bit too large.


– F1: Suitable for smaller or more slender women. This size is generally aimed at those who are on the leaner side in terms of body composition.


– F2: This is a step up from F1 and is designed for women of average build and height. It's a common size choice for many female BJJ practitioners.


– F3: For those who need a bit more room than what F2 offers. This size caters to women who are slightly taller or have a more athletic build.


– F4: This size is for those who are taller or have a broader build. It provides more room and is often chosen by women who find F3 to be too snug or short.


– F5: While not as commonly found, this size is for women who need even more room than F4 offers. It's designed for taller and larger-framed practitioners.


It's important to note that sizing can vary slightly between brands, so it's always a good idea to check the specific size chart of the brand you're interested in.

Delving Deeper: Advanced Features of Women's BJJ Gis

The Importance of Breathability and Moisture-Wicking

Have you ever wondered why the best BJJ Gis always boast about their breathability and moisture-wicking abilities? Let me explain why these features are much needed! Breathability in a Gi means it allows air to flow through easily, keeping you cool and comfortable during intense training sessions. 


Moisture-wicking is another fantastic feature; it means the fabric is designed to draw sweat away from your body, helping you stay dry and focused on your techniques. These qualities not only make your training more comfortable but also help in maintaining good hygiene and ensuring your Gi lasts longer.

Womens BJJ FAQ's Answered

Who is the best female BJJ Athlete?

The world of BJJ is filled with talented female athletes, each with their unique style and technique. However, it's hard to ignore the prowess of Mackenzie Dern, a black belt under her father, Wellington "Megaton" Dias. She's known for her aggressive style and has won numerous titles, including the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship and the ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship.

What size is a female BJJ Gi?

Most brands offer a size chart to help you find the perfect fit. For instance, you can refer to the Fumetsu Women's BJJ Gi size chart or the Scramble Women's BJJ Gi size guide for precise measurements.

Does it matter what color Gi you wear in Jiu Jitsu?

The color of your Gi can depend on your school's rules or your personal preference. Traditionally, white, blue, and black are the accepted colors in most BJJ schools and competitions. However, some brands, like Fumetsu, offer Gis in unique colors like khaki and grey, allowing you to stand out on the mat.

Underneath the Gi, women typically wear a sports bra and a rash guard for added comfort and protection. You can find a variety of BJJ rash guards and Jiu Jitsu leggings on Made4Fighters.

Does breast size matter for women's BJJ?

Breast size doesn't affect your ability to perform in BJJ. However, it can influence your comfort and the fit of your Gi. Women with larger breasts may prefer a Gi with a larger jacket to ensure a comfortable fit. It's also recommended to wear a supportive sports bra during training for added comfort.

What is a female Jiu-Jitsu Athlete called?

In Jiu-Jitsu, there's no specific term for a female practitioner. Both men and women are referred to as "Jiu-Jiteiros" or "Jiu-Jitsu players." The focus is on the art itself, not the gender of the practitioner.

How much does a Women's Gi usually cost?

The price of a women's Gi typically ranges from £20 to £130. The cost varies depending on the brand, material quality, and whether it's designed for training or competition use. Budget-friendly options are available at the lower end of this range, while higher-end, specialized Gis tend to be priced towards the upper limit.

Is there a difference between a male and female BJJ Gi?

Yes, there is a difference between a male and female BJJ Gi. Women's Gis are designed with a different cut to accommodate the female body shape, including a narrower waist and wider hips. They may also have a different design or color scheme. It's important to choose a Gi that fits well and feels comfortable during your training session.
