Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes are instructed and attended in a Gi (also called a Kimono). The Gi is the uniform worn for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is similar to a Karate or Judo uniform. The Gi is a vital tool in the development of students skills and understanding as you progress through the Jiu Jitsu.
All DC Jiu Jitsu students will be required to wear a DC Jiu Jitsu back patch on there GI at all times. If you have a Official DC Jiu Jitsu Gi already then you are fine as all DCJJ GIs come with the academy patch already on the back.
If you are wearing a nun office GI or a brand name GI you will be required to purchase and place a back patch on the GI as representation of your team, Back patches must be attached with in the week of obtaining them.
Any old academy patches (academy logos we have used in the past) or Other academy logos are not required on the GI as these team’s are no representatives of DC Jiu Jitsu Geelong or DC Jiu Jitsu Australia.
new students coming from other academies looking to join DCJJ Geelong may wear there old GI and logos only for the duration of the free trial after this a DCJJ back patch must be displayed on the back and all other patches no related to DCJJ removed.
Visitors may wear their team’s logos on the mat and inside the academy for the duration of there visit to our academy.
NO GI uniform consists of shorts & a rash vest. The shorts must have no pockets and the rash vest must be well fitted.
* DC Jiu Jitsu, GI and NOGI uniforms are available at the academy and will be available at our online store very soon along with other DC Jiu Jitsu Apparel.
