BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU FOR SELF DEFENSE,
COMPETITION, OR HEALTH & FITNESS

 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that enables a smaller person to defend against a larger opponent using leverage and proper technique. It teaches essential self-defense maneuvers that could be life-saving when confronted with a physically aggressive adversary. Mastering these techniques builds confidence in individuals.

At all X3 Sports locations, you'll find a diverse group of practitioners at various belt levels, ensuring peers with similar experience and others who will challenge you to improve. Our seasoned black belt instructors provide continuous opportunities for learning and growth.

UNIFIED CLASS SEMINAR

Introducing X3 Sports' Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gear

At X3 Sports, we understand the importance of having the right gear to enhance your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) experience. Our focus is not just on the physical aspect of training but also on the traditions and commitment that come with practicing this martial art. Whether you're a seasoned practitioner or just starting your BJJ journey, our carefully curated selection of gear ensures that you have everything you need to excel in your classes.

GI Kimono

GI - The Symbol of Commitment, Practicality, and Tradition

A GI, short for "kimono," is the traditional uniform worn by BJJ practitioners. At X3 Sports, we require the use of a GI in our BJJ classes. Why? Because the GI is not just clothing; it's a symbol of commitment to the art, practicality in training, and respect for tradition. When you step onto the mat in your GI, it's a reminder that you're in a different place, a place of learning, discipline, and personal growth. We encourage all our students to keep their GIs neat, clean, and wear them with pride, respecting the roots of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Rash Guard - Protection and Comfort

In addition to the GI, we also recommend wearing a rash guard during your BJJ training. Whether you're in a GI or No-GI class, a rash guard serves as a versatile piece of gear. It provides protection for your skin against rashes, mat burns, and bruises that can sometimes occur during training. Beyond protection, rash guards offer added comfort, wicking away sweat and allowing for freedom of movement, helping you perform at your best during every roll and drill.

Rash Guard

At X3 Sports, we believe that the right gear can make a significant difference in your BJJ journey. Our selection of GIs and rash guards is designed to meet the highest standards of quality, ensuring durability and comfort as you train and progress in this beautiful martial art. Equip yourself with the essentials, embrace the traditions, and embark on your BJJ journey with confidence at X3 Sports.

All BJJ gear will be provided for your first class. We also offer a special deal on GI purchases at membership sign-up!
