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.

Dennis K. Texas, USA

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!
