Falling in love with the sport of jiu-jitsu is a very easy thing to do. Once you start doing jiu-jitsu, you realize all the benefits that are present when you start rolling around with teammates on a daily basis. Jiu-jitsu lovers love getting gifts just as much as anyone else out there, here are 10 gift ideas for the Jiu-jitsu lover you have in your life!
10 Gifts for Jiu-Jitsu Lovers
The most important thing that we will need in jiu-jitsu is the traditional kimono called a Gi. Jiu-jitsu gi’s are excellent gifts for someone who trains BJJ during the holiday season. Typically we have a rotation of two gi’s so we always have one that is clean to train with during the week but the more options we have the better!
2) Rash Guards & Shorts
Rash guards and MMA shorts are also great gifts to get a jiu-jitsu lover during the holiday season. The rash guards and shorts are important for the no-gi grappling style that most people train in when taking on the sport of jiu-jitsu!
We love what Future Kimonos has going on with their gear and wouldn’t recommend anything else! We wrote a review of their products back when we attended ADCC! Although the product is a little more on the pricey side, the quality of the material is unmatched!
3) Seminars or Video Instructionals
One thing that is common for people that train jiu-jitsu is the desire to get better at the sport! The only way we can get better is by training more and watching videos on how the best in the world pull off the moves they do! Jiu Jitsu X courses are a completely different way to learn from some of the best in the world! We have bought a couple of courses from some of the instructors we know and it was well worth the investment!
Go ahead and ask your person who they want to learn from and we are sure you can find their instructionals!
Supplements are a huge part of staying at our peak so we can get the most out of our training sessions! A great gift to get someone who practices jiu-jitsu would be to get them supplements that can help with several issues that arise when training BJJ. A lot of us find ourselves training with little aches and pains that could be easily alleviated with proper supplementation! Here are some that we recommend you check out and consider getting someone who loves to train jiu-jitsu!
For Pain Management, Joint Pain, Or Muscle Soreness
This is a pre-workout specifically designed for people who train Brazilian jiu-jitsu and provides us with the necessary energy to easily get through workouts! The best part is that we do not experience any kind of jitters when taking the supplement and it supplies us with an immense amount of focus throughout the class!
Protein Powder For After Training
One of the more popular figures in the jiu-jitsu community is a person that goes by the name Jocko Willnik. The former military commander loves to train jiu-jitsu and has built products around his love for nutrition and the sport!
Jocko Fuel offers a number of products ranging from everyday supplements to high-quality proteins with no junk on the ingredients list!
Creatine is a supplement that allows the body to recover faster and allows us to get the most out of our bodies when training! A nutritionist that we recently spoke to told us to continue using this supplement so we know that getting creatine would work as an excellent gift idea!
5) Cold Plunge Tub
Something that we have recently gotten into is going and doing cold therapy as a way to keep our bodies fresh. The interesting thing about Jiu-jitsu is that there is no dedicated “season” so we have to create one for ourselves as athletes. A huge component as we get ready for the next year is keeping our bodies healthy and doing everything to prevent injuries from occurring!
We played sports all our lives and always found ourselves jumping in ice baths after long practices that were hard on the body! This is no different! A cold plunge tub is a great way to get the added benefits of doing cold therapy while at home without having to buy six bags of ice! Chances are if you are looking for gifts for someone who loves jiu-jitsu they probably do more exercise than normal!

6) Massage or a Massage Gun
Throughout this article, we have discussed the challenges that we go through as a grappler when it comes to muscle soreness, fatigue, and joint pain. Another great first for someone who trains actively is a massage gun that can help alleviate some of that pain! Some of the best can be found on Amazon!
7) Durable Jiu-Jitsu Bag
We have yet to find a specific company that makes great jiu-jitsu bags and will continue to be on the hunt for someone that does. For the time being though we have been using a Nike duffle bag that does the job just as well! We bought ours through amazon and use it almost every day!
8) Foam Roller
A foam roller and a massage gun combo are what we are looking for this holiday season! Sitting at our desks for 8 hours a day and training almost 5 days a week leaves our back feeling very tight! This is a great way to alleviate that tension.
9) Electrolyte Drink Packs for Training
Staying hydrated and getting electrolytes into our system is a way to stay at our peak and prevent us from crapping! A great stocking stuffer idea for people who love jiu-jitsu would be to get drink packs for our training!
10) Athletic Tape
The amount of laundry that we go through is pretty ridiculous. With the amount of the laundry, we go through and the amount of soap we go through does add up, getting us a good supply will save us some time and money along the way!
You can get some pretty awesome custom mouthguards with impact! Check out their site for their latest pricing!
