question for store owners, retailers etc; How do you produce a gi?

Hey people.

I know this is a pretty large subject, and not something that can be answered in a short sentance. I’ll try to keep my questions short and managable:

I have been toying with the idea of designing my own gi for a while, simply because I think I have some neat ideas for designs and the means to make them a reality. I am not looking to rob you of industry secrets, I simply want to design my own gi with a fit, texture and design that I find comfortable.

I know that some producers (usually in asia) will make almost anything you want aslong as you provide a blueprint and specifications for materials. These factories usually require you to order in bulck. Are there any “standards” for Gis? You could of course copy an existing size chart and use the meassurements as a base, but Im talking in terms of collars, weave, pant string etc.

Long story short; Are there reputable/decent producers (actual manufacturers, not companies based in the west who order gis from said factory) of gis out there who offer “base” blueprints of gis as a starting point that you can tweak in order to make a specialized product?

I know this whole thing sounds kinda strange, but I would love any info you might be willing to share, and as I said this is just a personal project I might be toying with, I am not looking to steal anyones sources or leads and put your families on welfare. I just want to create my own cool lookin gi. Any help would be greatly appriciated!

Would also love to hear from you in PMs/emails if you for any reason dont want to share it publicly.

[Advice] Rehabbing an intercostal strain and preventing it from happening again.

I went to my first bjj class (after years of wanting to try it out) a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it despite looking like a complete asshole trying to shrimp during warmups, as well as getting my ass handed to me by partner during a free roll at the end of class. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of not stretching very well before hitting the mat and also being in so-so shape did not help either.

I was super excited to go back the next day, but when I woke up I had very bad pain in my floating rib area. Stretching, lying/sitting, even breathing hurt badly. I went to a chiropractor and was told that I had an intercostal strain. He gave me an adjustment but it didn’t seem to help much. I read a few threads about intercostal strains on different bjj forums and it seemed like the best thing to do was wait it out to avoid re-injuring it despite me wanting to tough it out and go right back to the gym. My chiropractor advised me to wait 6 weeks which was the last thing I wanted to hear but I decided to heed his advice.

Anyway, I just wanted to ask some of the members here who’ve dealt with this injury about the process of rehab + some things I can do to strengthen that area of my body so it doesn’t happen again. I’ve been doing some light stretching but have been really careful not to aggravate it again. If anyone can point me to a good lifting/stretching program that targets that area of the body I’m all ears. My goal is to get into a nice routine, get in better shape, strengthen my core, and get back on the mat asap.

TLDR, went to first bjj class, loved it but strained the shit out an intercostal muscle. Gave it 4 weeks to recover, some slight pain but feeling much better. Looking for advice on how to improve strength/flexibility in that area so I don’t injure myself again.

Any advice is very much appreciated, even if that advice is to man up and go fuck myself. Thanks in advance.

Let’s Make Point BJJ Great Again!

Let’s have a bit of a brainstorm here. I’m currently loving the EBI sub only type stuff, but obviously point BJJ will always have a place. It’s clearly the best and most efficient format for large tournaments.

So, how would you make point BJJ better?

I would change what qualifies for points. I feel like many of the problems could be fixed by altering how points are received. Here is how it would work:

Takedown: 2 points

Mankiller Throw: 4 points (not sure what the term is, but like how you get extra points for high amplitude takedowns in sambo/freestyle. A more damaging takedown should be worth more)

Side Control: 2 Points (Knee on belly is the same as side control)

Advancing to Back and or Mount: +2 points or 4 points if you did not get their from side control (half-back and back triangle count)

The idea is that you can get a total of 4 points for dominant position. You can go right to the back and get 4. Or you could get side control and then go to the back for 4.

Sweeps do not get points. Sorry guard pullers! You’re going to have to sweep and then pass the guard to get points.

You get points for dominant position, not for the pass itself. For instance, if you were to flip someone from side control and end up on top in side control you get points for side control (you wouldn’t get any points in IBJJF).

It’s also implicit that I would free the donkey.

What are your ideas?

What do most people think of when you tell them that you train BJJ?

When people ask me about my hobbies I’m kind of reluctant to say I train BJJ because nobody has any idea what it is and I have a hard time explaining it. Usually they think it’s some kind of traditional martial art like Kung fu because of the Jiu Jitsu part or they think it’s ‘that dance fighting one’ because they’re confusing it with Capoeira.
