Jiu Jitsu Clothing for Kids
Congratulations! Buying your first Gi is very exciting time in your martial arts career! And I know it may seem like a daunting task, especially with all the multiple styles and variations available. But, I promise you, we will get through all the clutter and confusion to find the very best jiu jitsu gi for you and your young ones. Here, you will find info on the differences between female and male Gis, sizing and style information, moneysaving advice, and other valuable material related to BJJ Gis.
Remember, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi will never make you practice harder, submit your opponent, or help you win that big tournament. It is never the Gi, it is the person inside it. However, a Gi is an important tool in your BJJ journey that will provide you comfort, protection, and assistance in your technical training. Yes that’s right, assistance! In No Gi BJJ there is less friction and less grips enabling you to escape positions much easier. By creating MORE friction and MORE handles, the Gi forces you to become more technical in your movements and more diligent in your defense.
Female vs Male Gis
There is obviously a huge discrepancy between the female and male body type. And women BJJ athletes should have the same comforts and mobility as their male counterparts. Fortunately, due to the rapid success of female MMA and Brazilian Jiu-JItsu, more companies are jumping on the band wagon to produce high quality products for female combative sports.
Generally, a female Gi is more tapered at the waist and there is a more narrow cut through the shoulders. The sleaves are also cut a bit shorter and the hem is slightly higher on the Gi pants. This enables a much more fitted experience and allows you to flow in your Gi, rather then swimming in it’s bulkiness.
Younger girls and boys commonly were the same Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu style Gi tailored more specifically for their smaller frames. We will get into sizing next to see more specific measurements.
BJJ Gi sizes are generally indicated with a prefix before a number. For example, adult Gis have a prefix “A” and can range from A0 to A6. And for female specific Gis that prefix is an “F” and commonly range between F1 to F5. Kids Jiu Jitsu Gis have a prefix “M” and can range from M1 to M4 and can also be labeled as 000, 00, 0, and 1.
Keep in mind that there is slight and sometimes large variation in sizes between manufacturers. So it is very important to take a look at the specific manufacture’s sizing chart to find the dimensions that are best for you and your kids. To the right is a common example of a BJJ Gi manufacturer’s sizing chart.
As you can see this does not accommodate every different type of body structure. If you need shorter pants or a larger jacket most manufactures, if not all, will work with you to get the best possible fit. Of course the best way to get best possible fit is to actually try on your Gi before you purchase it, but unfortunately, most of the time this is not a convenient option. But if you can, try on one of your teammates Gis, or find a martial arts store with similar styles that you could put on and possibly purchase from them. With all the resources available to you such as sizing charts, manufacturer’s assistance, teammate and instructor’s advice, you should unquestionably find the the best Jiu Jitsu Gi size for you!
