SHOGUN Fight Tao Premium BJJ Gi Review

SHOGUN Fight Tao Premium BJJ Gi Review


Shogun is a premium manufacturer of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA apparel. In fact, the company prides itself in providing quality products that even professionals won’t hesitate to use. They even go as far as to say that their products are made “by fighters for fighters”, which means that all points of consideration were thought of in the making of the products.   

What makes Shogun BJJ unique is its full-color artwork printed using a process known as dye-sublimation.   

This technique is superior compared to others. Because, unlike other printing methods, dye-sublimation does not cause any cracking or flaking.   

With that said, we’re here to take a close look at the Shogun Fight Tao Premium BJJ Gi.  

Technical Features Summary

  • 100% compliant with IBJFF and competition standards
  • 450 GSM Pearl Weave Cotton 
  • Dye Sublimated prints
  • Rashguard lining
  • Durable Ripstop Sturdy cotton pants 

Material Features

In terms of craftsmanship and design, the Shogun Fight Tao Premium BJJ Gi is top-notch. It’s got the premium part down pat. Case in point, it feels and wears as if it was made specifically for your body’s fitIt is clear that whoever came up with the design has a creative mind.  

Thanks to its 450g pearl weave cotton material, the Gi is very soft to the touch and durable at the same time. The beautiful liner design makes it perfect for daily use when training. Not to mention, both the top and the bottom are equally comfortable even in the summer months.  

In addition to the 450 gsm pearl weave cotton fabric jacket, the ripstop pants are lightweight and very flexible. It also features a belt loop with 6 drawstrings. This guarantees that the pants stay snug and fit, even when your rolling hard!   

Of course, with premium features comes a high asking price. In fact, it’s one of the more expensive Gis on the market. However, it’s well worth paying for it if you’re looking for a cool-looking and comfortable Gi that you can wear in competitions and, while training, the Shogun Fight Tao Premium BJJ Gi has very few equals.

Design Features

The SHOGUN Fight TAO is the perfect example of a flashy Gi. Expect to turn a lot of heads if you’re wearing this bad boy.   

The professional cut and, perhaps, more importantly, the dye-sublimated embroidery and lining will receive plenty of compliments. The rash guard lining is also a definite plus! A lot of Gi’s out there are a bit abrasive on the skin – some so much that you may need to wear a rash guard underneath! You won’t have to worry about that with SHOGUN’s premium GI.

Overall the design definitely has all the bells and whistles you’d need in a BJJ Gi – and then some! The Gi is pretty bad-ass, great construct and premium design and comfort.   

This premium BJJ gi comes with black, white, and blue, all three of which are compliant with IBJJF standards and approved by the IBJJF themselves.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to BJJ gisit’s hard to beat Shogun when it comes to artwork. Their designs are as unique as the gis are comfortable to wear. Not to mention, by choosing to use the dye-sublimation process for the prints, they’ll not only look good, but they’ll last long looking good with minimal flaking or cracking if any at all.   

Of course, the SHOGUN Fight TAO is no exception.   

Much like other BJJ gis, the Fight TAO is made out of high-quality 450g pearl weave cotton for added durability and comfort.   

From the very first time you hold them, you’ll know that the Fight is a high-quality gi 

PROS

  • Soft and comfortable fit
  • Durable 
  • Unique and striking design 
  • Rashguard lining 

CONS

  • Expensive 

The design is admittedly flashy – keep in mind this is not for those who prefer classic and minimalistic designs.   

But, is this gi perfect? Not at all. It does have a few noteworthy flaws, but the main is its price.   

It’s expensive. It costs just as much as two other high-quality gis, which means that we don’t recommend it for people who are new to BJJ and MMA training. After all, spending this much for a gi means that you’re already taking the sport and/or your training seriously, which most beginners aren’t yet.  

If your just starting out, testing the waters, we recommend checking out some of the Best BJJ Gi for Beginners . 

But if you’re all-in on BJJ, then, by all means, the Shogun Fight Tao Premium BJJ Gi is with few rivals. Overall this one is a solid BJJ Gi, definitely one of our top picks for the best competition BJJ Gi’s out there!
