Shout out to Elite Sports & Born Tough!! Great Gear!!

My name is Deb Ballard. I am the owner of United Fighting Arts Institute in South Burlington, VT. I have been training for approximately 18 years in multiple disciplines of the martial arts. I am currently a 4 stripe Purple Belt in BJJ. I was lucky enough to be invited to review the Military Green BJJ Gi. I have rolled in it approx. 3 times, so far. I am very impressed with its performance and feedom of movement. It is lightweight and I have had no issues with any stitching or manufacturer defects thus far. I am very impressed with its overall construction and the color is very nice. Definitely an amazing BJJ Gi for it’s price point. It doesn’t feel too tight or too baggy…it fits very true to size. At this point, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a solid Gi to add to their daily rotation. Oss! -Debra Ballard-
