Learn why Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a very distinctive martial art, like no other:


Gentle Art: No Strikes_
 Jiu-Jitsu is the oldest form of Martial Art. It literally means Gentle Art in Japanese.
All our techniques are based on leverage, with minimum effort. Unlike Karate and Taekwondo, our Martial
Art does not have any form of strike. No kicks nor punches.
A Complete Martial Art
_ While other Martial Arts are purely Ďon their feetí, BJJ teaches you stand up, take
downs AND ground techniques. BJJ is a very well rounded Martial Art that develops on you a complete game.
The Best Self-Defense
_ Itís proven: more than 90% of the fights on the street end up on the ground
and with a high level of contact. And thatís why BJJ has one of the best self defense techniques
(specially for women), because:

  • Itís a full contact Martial Art;
  • It does not relay on strength; and
  • Its focus is on the ground.

BJJ is Not About Forms_ Jiu-Jitsu is a very dynamic Martial Art. Itís not only about memorizing, but also
about timing.
BJJ is Not About Strength_
 Jiu-Jitsu is maximum of efficiency, to minimum of effort.
Chess With Your Body
_ Jiu-Jitsu makes you think ahead. Itís a game of action-reaction: almost like
playing chess with your body. The submission is the checkmate.
No One is Excluded_
 Doesnít matter if you are tall or short, fast or slow, skinny or strong, young or old,
man or woman. Anyone can train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and still be really good at it. Itís just a matter of
adapting your game to your abilities. For us, brain is more important than physical qualities.

























General Regulations of IBJJF
According to article 8 of International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) rules, a competition gi must conform to these specifications:
1:- The gi must be constructed of cotton or similar material and be in good condition. The material may not be excessively thick or hard to
 the point where it will obstruct the opponent

2:- Colors may be black, white or blue, no combined colors (white kimono with blue pants, etc.)
3:- The jacket is to be of sufficient length down to the thighs, sleeves must reach the wrist with arms extended in front of the body. The sleeve  should follow the official measurements according to IBJJF (this is measured from the shoulder to the wrist)
4:- Belt width must be 4Ė5 cm, with belt color corresponding to the practitioners rank. The belt must be tied around the waist
with a double knot, tight enough to secure the kimono closed. An extremely worn/discoloured belt may need to be replaced before competing.
5:- Athletes are not permitted to compete with torn kimonos, sleeves or pants that are not of proper length, or with t-shirts underneath the kimonos (except for females).

6:- A BJJ practitioner is not allowed to paint his/her gi. Exceptions can be made for teams competition.
7:- In addition to the above requirements, pockets of any kind are not allowed in a gi to be used at tournaments.[4]
8:- A special gi checking tool is often used to determine acceptable measurements and fit of the gi. This tool resembles a block of wood
3.5 cm x 2.5 cm x 15 cm with a slit cut in the middle and is used to measure the following:
   a ) The jacket lapel must be 5 cm wide.
   b) There must be at least 7 cm of room from the bottom of the competitor's wrist to the bottom of the sleeve.
   c) The jacket lapel must not be thicker than 1.3 cm.

Gi Patches :
According to article 13 of IBJJF rules, patches may be placed on the gi in one of thirteen different locations:

On the jacket:
Left upper arm
Left upper shoulder
Front right upper shoulder
Front right upper arm
Front below the belt
Back below the belt
Back below the collar and above the belt

On the pants:
Above the front left knee
Above the front right knee
Below the front left knee (with at least 15 cm of space to the floor without patch to allow for grabbing)
Below the front right knee (with at least 15 cm of space to the floor without patch to allow for grabbing)
Along the back of the left leg
Along the back of the right leg

Fabric and weave
Pants
Traditionally, gi pants are made of a sturdy cotton, canvas, or denim (with reinforced seams/knees). Tough and light weight materials have started to become more popular in recent years as cooler hot weather gis have become more popular. It is common in tournaments to see competitors wearing ripstop pants with a standard cotton gi top.[7]

Jacket
Single Weave Cotton: This is lighter and typically less expensive. It is often used for hot weather training. Being
lighter weight (typically between 300Ė550 g/m2), this weave is not as durable as a heavier fabric.

Gold Weave Cotton: This material is in-between the single and double weave with regards to weight and durability. Gold
weave is a standard that was originally required for competition by the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Confederation, although this
has now been relaxed to allow different jacket weaves.

Double Weave Cotton: This Gi top is made of significantly more fabric than a single weave. It is heavier, harder wearing,
and is typically more expensive. The thickness of the gi can make it more difficult for an opponent to grip the fabric,
but the weight of the gi (typically between 650Ė1050 g/m2) makes them retain more heat. The stiffness of the material can
make double weaves more abrasive on the skin of opponents and wearers alike.

Rip stop Fabrics: Ripstop fabrics are made of many different materials (cotton, silk, polyester, and polypropylene, with
nylon) woven together to produce an extremely strong and light weight material that is difficult to tear or rip. Due to
the weave of the material this type of Gi top can be made light weight (lighter than a single weave gi) while still
remaining strong. Since this material is woven thinner than cotton gis, an opponent can more easily grab and manipulate
it.

Washing and Maintenance:

Due to the nature of wrestling/grappling and the diseases that can come from close contact between people, the gi is
typically washed after each class. As with most cotton products, a cotton gi must be laundered in cold water and line
dried to avoid shrinkage. This is important to most Jiu-Jitsu practitioners as even pre-shrunk gi material has a tendency
to shrink further in hot water and a hot dryer cycle. To preserve the life of the Gi care bleaching is highly discouraged,
as this can weaken the fibers of the material and cause them to tear more easily. Line drying in bright sunlight is
commonly suggested to help remove smells from the gi, due to the bacterial killing properties of UV light. It is important
to note, however, that hanging your gi in direct sunlight can damage the integrity of the gi's fabric and reduce its
durability (an important quality in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gis).

While most gis sold today are made of a colorfast material, some manufacturers recommend that a darker colored gi (blue,
black, red, etc.) be washed with 2-3 cups of white vinegar the first time that the outfit is laundered. This helps to set the dye in the
 gi and will minimize fading.
