We believe that individuals should make their own efforts to maintain sound mind and healthy body before relying on the society. VHTS wants to nurture people to be the best version of themselves through active engagement in outdoor or indoor activities such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, martial arts and climbing; we affirm that those activities are a microcosm of the human potential to overcome hardships and harbor a “never quit” spirit. “Be VERY HARD TO SUBMIT” is our philosophy, not just on the mats, but in whatever struggles lay ahead.

VHTS is actively engaged in promoting grappling and fight sports via sponsoring active athletes and tournaments worldwide. Our design embraces minimalistic approach; VHTS thinks simple yet aesthetic product design reflects our “Be VERY HARD TO SUBMIT” philosophy well.”

We live life with trust, despising violence, but don’t get us wrong: we love the fight. The fight against our weakness, our limits, the fight against our fears.

12. Fusion Fight Gear

About The Brand

“Fusion Fight Gear was created by a couple of Canadian Fitness and BJJ enthusiasts.

Initially inspired by Royce Gracie as he choked out Dan “The Beast” Severn with a triangle choke at UFC 3 back in 1994, we realized that he was the closest thing to a real life super hero that there could possibly be. This one brief moment in time set all of the wheels in motion, and started the martial arts revolution.

We realized early on in our BJJ careers that we were never going to be World Champs, but that training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu could enhance our lives on many different levels.

When we’re not busy training, watching Marcelo Garcia You-tube videos, or trying to berimbolo our family members, we enjoy attending comic book conventions, scouring vintage toy stores, or traveling around the world training BJJ.

We truly love this brand, as it comes from within us, and we sincerely hope that you do, too!”

Featured Rash Guard

“The Man of Steel made his first appearance in 1939, and has been serving justice and taking names ever since. The classic diamond crest design used on this officially licensed Superman rash guard has been in use since about 1940, and has changed only slightly over the years.

Sure, Batman laid the beats to Clark Kent in the most recent movie Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but everyone has a bad day, right? Heck, even Buster Douglas knocked out Mike Tyson in his prime…

Perfect for repelling nasty bacteria (but unfortunately not kryptonite), these officially licensed Fusion Fight Gear Superman short sleeve rashguards have a tight compression fit and make it tough for your opponent to grab you. They are also great for wicking moisture away from the body, and will dry very quickly.”

What Jiujiteiros Are Saying

The best thing to come out of Canadian BJJ: Star Trek rashguards. The Fusion Fight Gear ones are my go to at conventions. :D”u/slideyfoot

13. Hayabusa

About The Brand

“Hayabusa (pronounced hi-ya-boo-sa) is the Japanese word for peregrine falcon and was founded in 2006 by Ken Clement, Craig Clement, David Zikakis and Luke Harris. Initial product offerings included a specialized series of fight gloves, rash guards and fight shorts, since these were the fundamental training tools fighters required. The products were created with a focus on producing equipment and apparel that could meet and exceed the requirements and demands of a new era of athletes. Hayabusa has maintained a research-based approach to conceptualizing, designing, testing and manufacturing its products. These are driving factors as to how Hayabusa constructs the best equipment in terms of comfort, fit, feel, and most importantly, performance and safety. A martial artist is continuously learning and improving their craft, a philosophy called Kaizen. Hayabusa has adapted the same Kaizen approach as martial artists by continuously improving in all aspects of business. Whether it is product development, performance research or business processes, Hayabusa pushes to raise the bar and challenge the status quo.”

Featured Rash Guard

“The Captain America Long Sleeve Rash Guard conforms to your body and fits like a second skin. It’s comfortable from the moment you put it on and helps keep your muscles warm and skin dry during strenuous training. Designed to reflect Cap’s patriotic armor and classic colors, this rash guard makes you feel like a super-soldier. Its breathable fabric protects your skin from mat burns and is locked in place by a silicone waistband.”

What Jiujiteiros Are Saying

“I have a few Hayabusa rash guards that have silver in them to make them antimicrobial. They are a decade old and look brand new. It is incredible. The quality is amazing.”u/Scooted112

14. 93brand

About The Brand

“We’re a small company run by New Yorkers.

We, along with most American grapplers, would never have been introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu if it were not for the events of November 1993.

When Royce took to the octagon over 20 years ago, I remember watching it on a scrambled PPV channel with my cousins and uncles in the Bronx.

While Bruce Lee is the reason that many Americans aspired to do martial arts in general, that infamous eight-man tournament in ’93 is the reason that a lot of Americans developed an interest in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu specifically.

So as a shout-out to the year responsible for introducing the US to grappling, we are 93brand.

Featured Rash Guard

  • Soft low-sheen stretch fabric
  • Comfortable poly/spandex blend
  • Sublimated designs will not deteriorate or fade
  • High-tensile flat-lock stitching flexes with you while training
  • Generous torso length to prevent riding up
  • No interior tags (Care Info directly infused into the fabrics)

What Jiujiteiros Are Saying

“I really like them. 93brand is my main go to. At this point 50% of my gis and rash guards are from them. Good quality with a medium price range.”u/BJJBean

15. Virus

About The Brand

“At VIRUS, we know that you want to elevate your performance. In order to do that, you need to equip yourself with the best gear. The problem is that only the top 5% of athletes have access to customized gear built for their body and their specialized activity. Fortunately, for the rest of us, VIRUS is not following suit.

Featured Rash Guard

  • CoolJade™ Technology
  • Quick Dry
  • Wicks Away Moisture

What Jiujiteiros Are Saying

“100% by far best quality rash guard and spats! I literally use and ABUSE them daily, some for over 4 years straight. I do everything wrong too, I machine wash, high heat machine dry, go in salt water, etc. Virus compression is the best. Also look the coolest, fit the best. A little pricey but you can get GovX or promo codes often to get some savings. Even full price totally worth it.”u/avaialbleEXCLAMATION

16. Tatami

About The Brand

“Tatami Fightwear was established in 2009 with the goal of addressing the need for high quality Jiu Jitsu products at affordable prices. Founded by Gareth Dummer and Lee Jones in the heart of South Wales, Tatami now has a diverse and driven team committed to expanding the sport worldwide. Gareth, himself a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt, had spent years teaching the sport in lower income areas and local communities and found it increasingly difficult to find high quality products that his students could afford. That is where Tatami Fightwear came into the equation. From day one, we’ve worked tirelessly to develop innovative products and support the growth of the sport and make it accessible to a wider-ranging audience. Our aim is to expose combat sports to more people worldwide and uphold the values of BJJ, and this drives our work with associations such as the Royal Marines REORG foundation that ties into our mission statement to make the sport accessible to all. After 12 years of continuous development and innovation, our range now includes performance and lifestyle gear, from Gi’s to rash guards to leisurewear and everything in between, to showcase people on their Jiu Jitsu journey.

Featured Rash Guard

“Our Bushido no-gi range has been designed specifically to celebrate the traditions of martial arts and offer a functional set to hit the mats with. This range includes the Bushido rash guard, available in both short and long sleeve. The designs hints to the Asian influences that are prevalent in Jiu Jitsu, including Kanji print on the front and a more prominent back print.”

What Jiujiteiros Are Saying

Tatami makes the best rashguards I’ve ever used. Really thick, nice material and they have a silicone/rubber band around the hem that makes it not ride up at all.” -u/YesButConsiderThis

17. Sanabul

About The Brand

“We started Sanabul in 2014 because we knew we could do better than the other guys. We understand what matters to customers and we’re constantly evolving to provide unrivaled solutions. We recognize that everyone has their own fight, whether they’re stepping into the ring or challenging themselves to get in better shape, and we provide the tools to help them win.”

Featured Rash Guard

“Just What You Need. Available in 6 different color styles, the Sanabul Essential Rash guard provides you with all the features you’re looking for in a simple yet elegant design. Whether you need to show your Jiu Jitsu rank (IBJJF competition approved) or just want to match the rest of your outfit, we’ve got just what you covered.”

What Jiujiteiros Are Saying

“For the price, it’s hard to beat the Sanabul rash guards on Amazon. They’re a tad lightweight, and don’t have a few features (they don’t have rubberized elastic at the waist, for example)… but like I said, for the price they’re great. They are very simple designs too, without anything too garish or busy.”u/jephthai

18. RVCA

About The Brand

“The RVCA name (pronounced: rew-ka) was developed first and foremost out of the “v” and “a” = which symbolizes the balance of opposites and how they coexist: nature x industrialization, woman x man, past x present…future. Today. Tomorrow. Life.

RVCA is the brainchild of company founder, PM Tenore. Transcending the boundaries of traditional action sports apparel, RVCA is a design-driven lifestyle brand free from passing trends. Appearing as a natural on the shelves of boutiques as on those of a local skate shop, RVCA is brought together by a group of like-minded individuals from various subcultures, a collaboration of sorts, a lifestyle within itself.

For RVCA, it is about today, tomorrow and life as the big picture. It is about inspiring our generation, providing something of substance and culture and above all doing it with integrity and as a united family, a close-knit community.”

Featured Rash Guard

“Combining sun protection and style in one, the RVCA long sleeve rashguard offers stretchy, comfortable, watertight coverage while you surf. This rashguard features long sleeves, UVA and UVB protection, a hidden back key loop and RVCA branding.”

What Jiujiteiros Are Saying

“I have a couple of RVCA rash guards that are just black with a small logo. They’re more expensive but seem to hold up better than the cheap Amazon brandsu/Karl_Marxs_Beard

19. Venum

About The Brand

“Venum is an innovative brand, in continuous search for performance. It is not a question of recreating what already exists, but driving change, proposing new experiences day after day.

Why the name Venum? The snake is an animal carrying strong symbolism. They are lively, often fatal, inspiring both fear and fascination. The name Venum refers to the poison administered by the snake at the time of a bite. The U replaced the O for graphical harmony and balance. From inception, Venum is very proud of its logo and it is undoubtedly linked to the brands success.”

Featured Rash Guard

“This compression tank top is ideal for optimizing your performance during your BJJ, MMA, grappling, or cross-training workouts. It will protect you from chafing and scratches during ground workouts.

With its mesh inserts, this compression tank top allows optimal perspiration management. The perfectly measured pressure on the entire surface of the shirt boosts recovery.

Its pattern, borrowed from Maori culture, makes for a unique and original design, matching the other products in the collection.”

What Jiujiteiros Are Saying

“Just bought 2 long sleeve Venum rash guards. Love the fit and quality!”u/OneLambYiros
