In the end of May our CEO JP paid a visit to Kinya Hashimoto's Jiu-Jitsu school in Tokyo. Kinya is Japan's most prominent BJJ reporter. He's been covering every major event around the globe for many years. He's the host and producer of the "Jiu-Jitsu Priest" YouTube channel and the editor of the "Jiu-Jitsu Nerd" magazine.

There were two other black belts in attendance: Edson Kagohara who's the man behind the Dumau Kimonos and Tournaments; and Yuji Goto, the head instructor at Isshin Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Kamata. It was a very laid back training session. JP showed a sequence of guard techniques in self defense scenarios and then answered some questions. He also took advantage to learn some nice footlock setups from Kagohara-san and got some rounds of sparring to help beat the jet lag.

If you are ever in Tokyo, make sure to stop by Muse Academy and meet Hashimoto-san and his group of friends and students. Great training environment with English speaking available.

And remember that we have the limited edition Isami Jiu-Jitsu Prist Gi for sale right here at ChokeSports. It's a one of a kind black BJJ kimono with some really cool and creative patches. Click the image below to see full details and how to order.

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!
