Last night we paid a visit to Takeshi Yamazaki's Me We Gym in Yoyogi, Tokyo. Yamazaki is a very accomplished BJJ black belt and professional MMA fighter, having fought in major events such as DREAM, DEEP and Shooto. He's also a member of the famous Grabaka Team and a Reversal RVDDW sponsored fighter.

Me We Gym has a beautiful entrance that resembles a posh club or restaurant. It's quite spacious for Japanese standards. Once inside, it was easy to sense that this was a real fighter's gym. There was an MMA session under way when we got there with fighters going through an intense circuit training.

The BJJ class was led by Yamaguchi Sensei, who's a second dan in judo from Osaka. It was all about takedowns with a focus on judo for BJJ and a good mix of wrestling and grip fighting. There were so many details being shared, truly an inspiring experience. After solo drills we moved on to partner drilling. Yamaguchi Sensei made sure to work closely with every student, correcting mistakes and giving tips. Great teacher!

At the end of the class I had the chance to roll with all the students. Although there were only blue and white belts, they all showed good technique as is to be expected in any good school in Japan. Some of those guys are experienced wrestlers, it was nice to feel their base, strength and technique applied to BJJ.

If you are ever in Tokyo looking for a great BJJ MMA gym to visit, I cannot recommend Me We Gym enough.

What Customers Are Saying About Chokesports

I'm always happy to open the package to discover another new obi belt. The quality is still the best, delivery time still there, and most important the service is no 1. I had communication with Lisa Andersen. She wanted to be sure that my order was the right one for my new Shodan young girl. Very dedicated to the client. Simply the best.

I've always had my eye on RVDDW and Isami brand gear but wasn't sure about how to order in the US. ChokeSports made the process extremely easy and the shipping was amazingly fast even including the time allotted for custom patchwork. Extreme recommend to anyone on the fence. Much respect always to ChokeSports.

Best gi from best vendor. This is my third Isami Gi purchase from ChokeSports. I use them for Judo and BJJ. They fit the best, and they feel the best. Super fast shipping too. Rest assured I will order my fourth Isami Gi from ChokeSports in the future.

I want to congratulate the whole company, not only for the excellent work with the black belt I bought, but mainly for the support I had from the first steps of ordering. Connor's help was valuable through the chat line, up to the emails informing me of every detail. My colleagues and I will recommend your company. Thank you!
