    Hmmm, Do you think this is a good gi? I hope this doesn't have to move to the gear subgroup... Some good grappling in this clip...

    Judging by the lack of gi pants I would have assumed it was a sambo commercial.

    In the old days we used to train with a gi top and shorts. This brought back memories...(not)

    I wouldn't buy simply on the grounds that they can't spell "Mata Le

    Ehh, combining sexual arousal and jiu jitsu is a mental road I try to avoid going down. For obvious reasons.

    To be fair, if someone came out with a "Kill Lion" gi, I probably wouldn't buy that either.

    I just find this an interesting marketing strategy. Are we the target audience? I would think the target is the female BJJ population but the sex appeal targets men. (or women who find other women sexy)

    I don't know of many gi commercials really...

    Well, the Spanish language has nothing to do with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and no significance to me personally sooo . . . I still wouldn't want it on my gi.

    Well the marketing worked to some degree, saw this all over FB, saw it posted here, if anything they may get a little more traffic to their site.

    I'll be savaged on Sherdog, but I found the ad sexist and exploitative.
