Buying BJJ Gis in Riverside

While a lot of things can be found cheaper on the internet there is still some products that do not have any percentage off when you buy them from a website, but you still have to pay for the shipping of that item no matter where it comes from. That is why buying a Gi from a brick and mortar store is actually the best thing to do, because beyond the misconception of an increase in price there are a few more things that people may believe about buying Gis from a store that are just flat out wrong.
For anyone that lives in the Riverside area that is looking for the best and newest Gis to train in many of them turn to online resources, but they are flat out going about ti all wrong when there is a perfectly good store to shop in. OTM Fight Shops is local in Corona, California. They have Gis that are exactly the same price if not cheaper than the ones you would fins online. They also carry a variety of brands from Lucky Gi to OTM Gis they also carry some of the highest quality and rarest Gis on the market.
OTM Fight Shops also is known to run promotions just like any other brick and mortar store. From Black Friday to July 4th weekend the store is known to have all kinds of deals on BJJ gear. Plus, they have their own line of Gis so when having a direct line to the creator of the Gis it is easy to have those specials during those special times of the year.
Aside from the holiday deals, the stores also hold a valued customer programs which gives a credit to your account for every certain amount of money you spend. It is essentially like getting a five percent back on your purchases when you each a certain amount. Plus, who says no to free money? If you do then there is truly something wrong with you.
At the end of the day, buying from a brick and mortar store in Riverside is bound to be better from ordering online. Not only are you paying the same price, you have some of the best selection of Gis to try on before you buy, and you get a little bit back for being a valued customer. When you walk out with your Gi it is a lot better feeling than waiting a few weeks for it to arrive.

Wholesale Boxing Glove in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is known as the fight capital of the world whether it is MMA or boxing. So, it can be seen as a sort of a Mecca for anything involving the sport whether it is gym, equipment, or even competitions. That is what Las Vegas represents to fans and anyone involved in the sport.
In the city of Las Vegas there is well over 200 gyms which means there is nearly 1.5 gyms per square mile in the city. A lot more when you consider how much of the city is dedicated to casinos and gambling. When you factor the gambling out boxing and MMA has to be the biggest draw and export from the city, and that is why wholesale boxing gloves is a huge market in the city of Las Vegas. No matter what type of gym it is they invest a lot into supplying their students with boxing gloves, and whole sale boxing gloves help keep the cost down for all parties involved.
For an easier way to understand how big the city of Las Vegas and boxing are involved look no further than the biggest name that boxing has in Floyd Mayweather.  He has consistently broke live gate records, PPV records, and any other record a boxing match can have, and he has done that for his last ten fights in a row in the city of Las Vegas. From his latest opponent of Saul Alvarez to Oscar De La Hoya, Mayweather has been able to build his legacy in the city that has been synonymous with the sport since around its inception.
Wholesale boxing gloves are a cheap, efficient way to get many high quality gloves at one time. Whether it is a sale of 10 or 100 gyms can get the best product through wholesale gloves even in a city that has been entrenched int he sport of boxing for well over the last 30 years. In fact, it was in the 1980’s that las Vegas became the boxing capital of the world, and with continual purchases of wholesale boxing gloves it will stay that way for many years to come.

Lucky Gi Bamboo Gi Review

Lucky Gi truly is the biggest innovators in the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, because not only do they come up with some of the most creative designs for Gis, they also use the most varied types of materials to create them. The newest version is their Bamboo Lucky Gi which snuck up on the market like an Ezekiel choke on a white belt. Check out all this all encompassing review on easily the best Gi to hit the markets in all of 2013.

Comfort and Design
One of the biggest things that makes the new Lucky Gi so amazing is the comfort of the Gi. This Bamboo Gi is the softest most comfortable Gi you will ever wear in your life. Also, it is not like cotton Gis that get rough and stiff after a few washes. No, Bamboo is built to actually stay soft if not get softer after a few washes. I am not joking when I say you can wear this Gi as a robe in the morning as well as train with it on the mats. So, if your wife complains about the price of it just let her know it can double as a robe as well!
The design is also something that you will not get over. The attention to detail put into this Gi is also amazing. While some companies may have a great logo, or some unique color scheme. The Bamboo Lucky Gi has it all. Whether you buy white or blue you are being treated to a unique color scheme that screams originality yet is smooth when looking at it. The design does not stop at the logo or jacket; it spread to the cuffs of the pants and sleeves that have silver trim as well as a saying etched along the inside. So pay close attention to this Gi as design characteristics will pop and surprise you months after you bought it.
Function and Features
While the Bamboo Gi does not have something radical like a rashguard built into it, that is because it does not need it. Some companies build rashguards into their Gis to help protect the wearer from bacteria and disease that is prevalent on MMA mats. Well, the Bamboo that this Gi is made out of already has antimicrobial abilities bread into the fabric. The Gi itself is a protector from nasty bacteria and disease that can cause staph infections or ring worm. Plus, the smoothness of the Gi will also make it hard to grab for an opponent, but is not illegal like Ripstop material is now.
Durability
A lot of people find that limited run Gis are made fast and have a lower quality, but that is just plain wrong. That is a lie perpetuated by some companies that are not ballsy enough to try being innovative. When a company is crazy is crazy enough to design a Gi with the Diaz brothers or allow one of their signature Gis to have pinstripe or cheetah print on the inside they are not looking for a quick buck. They are just trying to elevate the gear we wear to practice an art form to be art themselves. The Bamboo Gi is one you can buy and know it will be around for years to come, and you will look just as badass in it as the day you bought it.
The Bottom Line:
If you are looking to standout from your training partners for more than the color of your belt than the Bamboo Lucky Gi is for you. Not only is it made with love and attention of a company that is all about the sport, but it is going to push the remaining companies to step their game up and not lag on the simple designs that have worked for years. A lot of times the first through the door are always called crazy until someone comes up with the same idea a few years later and called genius. I don’t know about you, but in the world of BJJ I don’t mind be called a little crazy!

How Boxing Glove Ounces Work

What Boxing Glove Ounces are right for you?

Boxing glove ounces are one of the many things to consider when buying boxing gloves, but what amount is the right amount? Well, check out this article for the breakdown of all the ounces you can buy, and that way you can check out which one is the right one for you! There are a few things to consider when considering ounces from what you are using them for, how much you weigh, or whether you want to compete with them.

Boxing Glove Ounces for competition

Boxing Glove Ounces for Competition

Competition Gloves

When fighting in competition only certain gloves are able to used legally. Most of them are 12 ounces, but in amateur competition it depends on your size which can make the gloves range from any size. When you are competing either the place you compete and your trainer should know what size of gloves you need.

Boxing Glove Ounces

Boxing Glove Ounces for Your Weight

What You Weigh

Usually the weight will factor into what you need as well even outside of competition. The glove size is determined on what your weight is 12 and 14 ounces are good for 120 pounds and below, from 120 to 150 14 to 16 ounces would work, 150 to 180 pounds you can use 16 to 20 ounces, and if you weigh more than 180 you should be using nothing less than an 18 ounce glove. That is just a rough scale of what should be used for people in sizes. Of course, it still depends on what you are using them for.

Boxing Glove Ounces

Boxing Glove Ounces for Practice

Practice Gloves 

If you are using gloves for practice you want the best fitting with the most protection. So, gloves in the 16 and 18 ounces are generally the best, but those can be too big for smaller people. So, you can use a smaller glove for practice, but that is if you are not sparring. When sparring it is almost certain that you should use an 18 or 20 ounce glove. This is for protection of your hand and your partner. That is just the sensible and safe thing to do. Sometimes it does not depend on comfort, because safety comes first.

As stated before the Vulkan Women’s Pro Light Gi is one of the most stylish Gi on the market. Not many other companies can boost the different color schemes that these Gis have. They are also pre-shrunk so that you do not have to worry about them changing shape on you, but make sure top try them on to see which ones fit you.

Vulkan Women's Pro Light Gi

Vulkan Women’s Pro Light Gi: Black/Pink

Function and Features

The Gi as stated before is pre-shrunk so you do not have to worry about it changing size on you.This is also one of the lightest Gis on the market coming in at around 2.8 pounds which is perfect for summer training or to compete in.

Durability

The durability of this Gi is held up buy the same standards of every Vulkan Gi. The great thing about the Vulkan Gis is that they are made in Brazil. This does not mean that they are better than the ones made in Pakistan, but they just come with a different style. This is made with the honey comb weave which is not often seen. That is some of the quality that comes with a Vulkan Gi.

Vulkan Women's Pro Light Gi

Vulkan Women’s Pro Light Gi: lilac

The Bottom Line:

The Vulkan Gi is top of the line, but ti does come with a hefty price tag. Depending on the color that you choose you will either pay anywhere from about $175 to $200 on the one you get. The good thing is that the Gi is very durable, light, and perfect for training or competing. So, check out these Gis when you are in the market for one ladies!

Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard Review

Introducing Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard!

Hayabusa has always made used a lot of knowledge and technology into making their products from gloves to fight shorts. Now, they have taken all of their abilities and put them into their new Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard. With three different unique styles, plenty of innovation, and the quality that all Hayabusa product carries do not be surprised to see these in gyms very soon.

Hayabusa's Metaru Rashguard

Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard Front of Blue/Black Longsleeve

Style and Comfort
The Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard carries three unique styles. They look like a reptiles skin with thrash marks throughout the design filled with color. You can have white/black, blue/black, or a grey/black. The Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard also holds a flatlock stitch that will prevent chaffing for the wearer and is made from the Hayabusa AG compression fabric that makes the rashguard super flexible.

Hayabusa's Metaru Rashguard

Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard Back of Black Longsleeve

Function and Features
The Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard has the new X-Static XT2 pure silver infused into the fabric. This new technology from Hayabusa provides an all natural anti-microbial aspect to the rashguard which will prevent the growth of  bacteria and allow for odor protection. This cutting edge fabric also has thermoregulation within it so if it is hot where you train or if it is cold the rashguard will help to regulate your own temperature.

Hayabusa's Metaru Rashguard

Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard Front of Black/White Shortsleeve

Durability
The Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard is just as durable as any of the other Hayabusa products on the market. The flatlock stitching helps to allow fraying where the fabric is put together. Also, the graphics on the rashguard are fused onto the fabric so you will not have to worry about them fading or falling off with multiple washes. Plus, when a rashguard is meant to protect against cuts, scrapes and rashes it has to be durable all on its own.

Hayabusa's Metaru Rashguard

Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard Back of Black/Blue Shortsleeve

The Bottom Line:
The Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard is one of the most durable, cleanest, and comfortable rashguards on the market. While it holds a higher than average price point of nearly $70 you cannot beat the style that comes with it. You could go out and pick up another rashguard for less, but you could have graphics that fall off, something that does not defend against bacteria, or even protect you from rashes. That is why you should pick up the Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard.
