Hey guys were can i buy a BJJ gi in Ottawa with best prices and good quality?
I am not sure if there are any local stores... even if there are they probly do not have a decent selection, so I would recommend 2 places to check out. 1) FightersMarket.ca - Your Canadian source of Jiu Jitsu Gis & Grappling Gear, they sell all the popular brands and they have the best prices I have seen. 2) is a small company but they make solid Gis for a great price, Redstar Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi Red Star Kimono, just so you know the prices include tax and shipping.
I have bought a Gi from each of those places, and both have great service.
there is also mmagearpimp.com, it is a Canadian site but they use US funds, I dont like that so I dont use them.
Thanks for the help
Sorry to bump an old thread but we are a new Ottawa based BJJ, MMA and Muay Thai retailer. We are strictly online but since we are located in Ottawa, we can try and accommodate any local request for fitment, exchanges and delivery..etc. We currently have Hayabusa, Manto, Tatami and Scramble in stock with new gear arriving daily.
Takahashi Dojo on Melbourne (near Westboro) sells Judo gis that would work for BJJ. They'll be of identical (or greater) quality but they'll be looser than the average BJJ and it'll be mostly Judo brands rather than BJJ brands (Jukado, Fuji, Adidas, Mizuno,etc.)
The Martial Artist in Orleans sells gis but they're not brands I'm familiar with. The one that I've seen most people get from them is a BJJ gi by a brand named Budo. No one's complained about them in person but I have read some bad reviews online. It liiks like, depending the batch, the quality ranges from totally okay to total shit. Their website doesn't show off much stock so it's possible that they have a lot more in their store. I guess you'll have to go to check it out.
This is the gi they usually sell as their "grappling" gi:
OAMA sells gis but most of them are branded with Renzo Gracie embroidery and patches.
Most of the guys I know just order their stuff online because there's so little actually in town. Hope this helps.
Yes, Ottawa does seem to be a little lacking in selection. I sponsored two tournaments in Ottawa last year (and intend to do so again this year), and each time the competitors were loving it, buying and trying on a ton of stuff.
Be sure to check us out, new stuff is coming in all the time.
100% correct. Not much stuff in Ottawa. That's why we decided to start Fightshop.ca in Ottawa. We'll have BJJ, MMA and Muay Thai gear.
