Product Description

The "Kano" - Made in America
The Kano is inspired by the roots of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu itself, Jigorō Kanō, the founder of Judo. Traditional white fabric was the hallmark of all Judoka's back in the late 1800s. A pure white canvas, featuring a single "Origin USA" leg embroidery, this Kano Gi is anything but traditional. Designed with our Gorilla Weave© Fabric, woven at the Origin factory, right here in Maine.

Prepare to Have Your Mind Blown.
Fact: Weight (or GSM) doesn't always equal strength. Gorilla Weave© features a hybrid-blended fiber makeup, specifically engineered for Jiu-Jitsu. This proprietary performance textile was invented by the minds at Origin. This gi not only features the lightest jacket in its class, it's stronger than anything you own. Cotton, hemp, pearl, or gold weave. Comparing a Gorilla Weave© Jacket to any other kimono jacket on the market is like comparing running in leather sandals to running in a pair of Nike's. It's like comparing a horse-and-buggy to a Lamborghini. There simply is NO comparison. When we engineered our kimonos and textiles, we did just that. They were truly engineered, not imported as a generic fitting gi, and beautified with a cool looking logo.

The Mold Has Been Broken. We Invented "Gi Science"
The true difference in Origin is the fit, the feel, and the function. And the only reason we don't charge $500 for this kimono is that we sell all our products factory direct. This gi features Atomic Twill© pants. Another innovating textile, designed and engineered right here in the USA. Here at the factory we like to say Atomic Twill© and cockroaches are the only two things that would survive in an apocalyptic event, these textiles are that tough. Our ultra-light performance pants are 10x stronger than any other gi pant on the market. They truly dry as you train. Giving you the ability to perform, move, and roll round after round. No matter how hard you are sweating, or how tough your partners grips are, both fabrics are made to perform in the most extreme environments.

  1. Great product ! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 4th 2017

    I'm brand new to BJJ and I was looking for another Gi so I don't have to do laundry constantly. I did my research and took a chance on Origin. It is everything they advertise.

    The quality is superb and it shipped fast.

    a few things they could improve on:

    keep you updated about order. it arrived and it said on there website it was still processing.

    Have more inventory on hand. a lot of sizes are on back order.

    I will buy form them again.

  2. Pleasantly surprised!!! 5 Star Review

    So next month would have made it exactly 1 Year since i ordered my first Origin Kimono, The "Mist". long story short Wasn't happy because i had to wait 2 months before receiving my order. I was hesitant on ordering again but the overall quality is what sold me! i was fully prepared on waiting the same time frame as last time, but as the title states, i was pleasantly surprised! Placed my order on the 1st and received on the 5th! Only took 4 days!!! way to step it up Origin! Hope i wasn't just lucky and picked the perfect time to order and receive my order that fast. I'm looking to order another one or two relatively soon!

    Although it wouldn't hurt to be a couple inches longer, the consistency is on point! jacket fits just as my first. stitching is straight. Love how light it is and The pants are amazing! Great Product!

  3. Wonderful gi 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Feb 9th 2017

    I have quite a few training partners who have Origins and I always liked them so I figured I would give one a try, so this was the first one I bought, I really, really like it. It is lightweight, but it has hard to grip lapels.

    It dries very quickly, and stays light.

    My favorite part is probably the belt I cannot wear gi pants with ties ever again, they never stay tied no matter how you tie them, the snap belt is foolproof, stays buckled no matter what.

    I bought another one of these the following week as I liked it so much. I'll be coming back for some blue options as soon as possible.
