    Im looking for the kimono on the Dragao site called Arm Lock Behring
    However i cannot find it on riofightwear.com, and not sure how i could order directly from Dragao being mm in the USA. I dont speak a lick of portugese so it makes the site difficult to understand. Also It cost a bit more on the site then the traditional armlock and i cant seem to figure out why. They are both double weaves? if anyone could give me some insight it would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi
    The materials in the new gi are the same as far as I know. Funnily enough I emailed the owner today to catch up on things so he might well tell me the differences.
    I know it was a gi which is trimmed to the specifications of the owners good friend Master Behring. As for ordering it. Email me at [email protected] and I'll forward you email direct to the owner. His English is superb.

    To the best of my knowledge Flavio Behring is 8th Dan but is considered in Brazil to be one of the top men.

    It looks like the only difference in that GI are the patches shoulders and Master Behring signature. We did not hear from Dragao yet , but someone we spoke before , said they look the same as the Fire Gi with the Air brush Flames.

    Are you still interested on that one ?

    Think i figured out why, they are made by order and come with a choice of flag on the shoulder. Its same as flame armlock other wise. Just tried to order if off dragao's English site but site is erroring out when it goes to ask for credit card.. dunno why.

    Rdy to order today, but the Dragao site still is not working right. When it gets to where it pick the credit card it loads but says "loaded with error on page" So there is no where to go from there. I would e-mail the owner but there is no contact with e-mail on the site.

    I forwarded your email to Fulvio and he acknowledged it so he has definitely got it.
    I'll chase him up on it for you.
