6-Weeks for $77
Some martial arts use the uniform purely as a aesthetic component, but in Jiu-Jitsu it is a very functional piece of equipment. As a martial arts with strong roots in self-defence dealing with people grabbing you buy the clothing and using peoples clothing to control them are very real situations. The uniform, or "Gi", is designed to be sturdy enough to be grabbed & pulled without ripping.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most popular martial arts around, especially amongst adults, and for good reason. It is practical, safe, and one heck of a good workout.
However it has A LOT of depth. While some other martial arts award blackbelts in 3 years or less, and often to young children... BJJ black belts can take more then a decade to achieve.
BJJ gained popularity fast after the early UFC's when the smallest competitor was able to dominate and submit much larger opponents without hitting them, and getting hit very little. Full-filling the claims that martial artists have been making for years, that with the right training a smaller person can defeat a larger one without either getting seriously hurt.
BJJ is a ideal sport for many adults, apart from the fitness aspects it is safe (you don't get the repeated hits to the head of striking arts.)
