Grab & Pull, out of Brighton UK, is the child of Gus Oliviera and has become one of the most recognizable BJJ Apparel Company in the UK. Grab & Pull is also very active in the European BJJ community. Recently, they’ve helped to bring Grappler’s Quest to Europe and will also be streaming the upcoming Copa Podio tournament. G&P is crossing the big pond soon and were kind enough to send their Premium Version 2 gi for a review. If the gi that I was sent is any indication of their products they will be just as big in the US in no time. Their current line of products include: tees, gis, belts, rashguards, and fight shorts. Now, let’s jump into the review for the Grab & Pull Premium Version 2 in White (A2)!
"Inverted Gear was founded in February of 2012. We had grown tired of the current trend of high price pre-order limited edition gis, which meant months of waiting and small window of purchase. We strive to bring a high quality product at an affordable price…
We are not for the tough guys, our logo is a clear indication of what we are about. We are for the guys and girls that want to be on the mat…
Be part of the Panda Nation”
I was introduced to Inverted Gear about a year ago. I was competing in my first IBJJF tournament and kept seeing these gis with upside down pandas on them. They were everywhere, seemed to fit well and the panda logo is pretty cool. It wasn’t until a few months ago that I was able to finally get my hands on one of these gis and see what all the fuss was about. BTW, Inverted Gear has the nicest gi bag that I’ve ever seen. My oldest daughter fell in love with it instantly and has claimed it as her own.

In the words of the man himself, “Modern Jiu Jitsu, as my DVD illustrates, isn’t new jiu jitsu just a better way to do the things we have always been doing. We aren’t reinventing the wheel, we are using better application of technique to make the wheel better.” Caio Terra
Caio Terra’s Modern Jiu Jitsu series was released in early 2012 to almost universal praise (also here). The set is available as 4 DVDs or 8 apps from iTunes and is available at Mobile Black Belt. This set has already gained the reputation as a go to instructional for beginner to intermediate practitioners. The combination of stunning visuals, first-rate audio and expert instruction ensures that this set will stand the test of time. In this article, I’ll be covering the entire set. Included will be my easy to follow mindmaps (flow charts) that can be downloaded from a link at the end of the article.
In March 2011, Roger Gracie and Kev Capel promoted me to purple belt. Two months later, I moved to Bristol, where conveniently there was a BJJ academy around the corner. Due to the colour of our belts, in May 2011 the head instructor in Bristol asked the other purple belt and I if we wanted to help out with classes. I jumped at the chance, as instructing jiu jitsu has been a long-term goal of mine for some time. I had some experience leading undergraduate seminars on literature, but discussing poetry is quite different to teaching a physical skill set like jiu jitsu.
“BreakpointFC was founded out of our love for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We understand the difficulty of finding quality Gis with good fit. Our brand values quality and customer service. We constantly try to refine our products to respond to the demands of the Jiu Jitsu community. Where other premium Gi companies products skyrocket in price while declining in quality, Break Point offers premium Gis at competitive prices with excellent design, fit and quality. One roll and you will know the difference.” Breakpoint FC
Break Point’s new series of ranked rashguards are available in short sleeves. The rashguards are IBJJF legal, available in traditional ranks, kid’s ranks, pink and red. The rashguards feature fully sublimated graphics and are available for $49.95 from Breakpoint.
United Patch: Have you seen it?
Liz Sussan, Da Firma Kimono Company, NHB Gear, & Ingenuitek have come together to design this woven patch to represent the BJJ community being UNITED against rape and abuse.
The large size is 11"x4" and is $12 and the small size is 6"x3" and is $10. Since February, over $1,000 in proceeds from the patches has been donated to RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. We've been asked by the survivor of the NYE assault to donate proceeds to the Network for Victim Recovery of DC (www.nvrdc.org) because that organization has assisted her since January with all of her needs. So we are now directing a large portion of proceeds from the patches to NVRDC. We estimate that at least 80% from each patch purchase price will be donated to NVRDC or RAINN for their wonderful survivor support and community awareness work.
Let's show how we're UNITED against rape and abuse by wearing these patches on our Gis!
Huge shout out to Da Firma Kimono Company, NHB Gear, & Ingenuitek for the production and their donation to the cause! They continue to amaze with their kindness and generosity!
If you’re a newbie to the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, then do I have the video for you! It’s easy to go on YouTube and find videos of some of the top guys in the game and be amazed, but when you attempt the stuff that they’re able to do, it’s almost impossible to do it correctly. Luckily there’s a video that makes some lethal leg locks easy as “one, two, three” for all of you just starting out.
Ricard Almeida is a name that is well known in both the MMA and BJJ worlds. A former fighter with experience in PRIDE & the UFC, Almeida also coaches reputable fighters such as Frankie Edgar. But you’re here for BJJ, right? Of course you are! Ricardo is a 3rd degree black belt under Renzo Gracie; Almeida has vast experience in the grappling world having competed in the IBJFF, CBJJ and the ADCC. Long story short; he’s been there and done that.
I wear rashguards every time that I train. Gi or nogi, it doesn’t matter. I wear half a dozen rashguards every week and I’m pretty rough on them. My typical rashguards last about 4 to 6 months before a seam pops or begins to unravel. Sadly, some have only made it a few sessions before going into the pile of unusable gear. Finding one that’s affordable, comfortable and budget friendly is very important to me and probably to you as well. In this review I’ll be looking at Apollo Fight Gear’s rashguard. It’s fully sublimated, has extra torso length, comes in long-sleeve or short-sleeve and is only $30.
