SHOGUN Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Lightweight Gi Review

SHOGUN Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Lightweight Gi Review

Shogun Fight has been starting to become one of the best selling products in the market. This is due to their products sleek designs and their seemingly durable material. Specifically their two most expensive Gi's (Shogun and Samurai) that include amazing artwork in their inner linings.

For this review, we are going to review the Shogun Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Gi. Their much more cost effective and lightweight Gi.

The cheapest option doesn’t necessarily mean the Shogun Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Gi isn’t a good quality Gi. Shogun Fight just made an everyday Gi for grapplers who don't necessarily want to break the bank!

It is still possibly a quality gi just with a much simpler design. Let’s go over the Shogun Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Gi’s and see if they made a product worth your money.

Technical Features

  • 350 GSM Pearl Weave Cotton Jacket 
  • Reinforced Base of Gi Jacket and Sleeve Cuffs
  • Super Lightweight - Excellent for summer training!
  • Ultra Durable Trousers - equipped with 6 drawstring loops

Material Features

The Shogun Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Gi is made from a 350 GSM cotton pearl weave. Shogun Fight’s top shelf Gis are made of a 450gsm weave - only 100 GSM differential between their premium grade Gi in comparison to their more affordable option. 

This is actually a good deal for their Gis on the more expensive side being $50-$60 more. Only losing a 100 GSM in durability for almost half the price is a steal!

The base of the Gi jacket and cuff sleeves have been reinforced for more durability. This means that the jacket should be able to take extra wear and tear from long periods on the mats.

Pants of the Shogun Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Gi are marketed as being “ultra durable.” They’re made of ripstop surdy cotton and come with six drawstrings to ensure the pants should stay on.

Having a lightweight Gi that is reasonably priced and still durable sounds like a pretty good deal.

  • LIGHT WEIGHT - Premium crafted from 350gsm pearl weave cotton gi jacket. Reinforced base of the gi jacket and interior sleeve cuffs.
  • BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED - Embroidered logos throughout. Embroidery across the right chest that reads 'Shogun' in Japanese
  • ULTRA DURABLE - Ripstop Sturdy cotton pants for grappling. 6 drawstring loops.
  • MULTIPLE SIZES AVAILABLE - Available in sizes A0 to A5

Design Features

Shogun Fight’s higher end Gi's are filled with amazing artwork and unique designs. In design, they went with the complete opposite approach making the Shogun Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Gi.

Instead of having eye catching art, they went with a more traditional and cleaner look. While it doesn’t have flashy art it still looks super clean and professional.

What designs the Gi does have are all embroidered onto it. The most notable being the kanji symbol that signifies "Shogun" on the right pec of the jacket.

The other designs are the Shogun dragon logo that are on the left sleeve and right pant leg. There is also another embroidered dragon on the outside flap of the gi jacket.

The Shogun Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Gi also comes in 3 color designs white, black/gold, and blue/silver. If you want to personalize your Kanji Gi even further, there’s a lot of room for patches.

FINAL THOUGHTS

It may not be their highest priced or most durable Gi from Shogun Fight selection, but you can’t say that this Gi isn’t a good product! The Shogun Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Gi looks to be a reasonably priced Gi with the durability of a premium Gi. 

This Gi has a clean/simple design and made of some durable material. It seems like a quality Gi that you should get good use out of.

PROS

  • Excellent Price Range
  • Very Durable for a Lightweight Gi
  • 100% IBJJF Approved
  • Extra Support Added to Gi Jacket and Sleeve Cuffs

CONS

  • Sizing Inconsistencies
  • Experiences Shrinkage after wash

From an eye test, the Shogun Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Gi seems like a really good deal. It has what most gi grapplers that don’t want to spend too much on a gi look for.

You really never see a company make a lightweight Gi that almost has the durability of their most expensive Gi. At under $100 bucks, the quality and feel you get out of the Shogun Fight Jiu Jitsu Kanji Gi is simply amazing. 

And be honest about one of only reasons Shogun’s Samurai and Shogun gis are expensive is the artwork. What you’re basically paying for is cool artwork in the interior of the Gi.
