The Future of Jiu-Jitsu

ORIGIN RIFT BJJ GI - Made in America

We asked ourselves, what would we build if we started from scratch. If we stripped away cost, not having the right technology or machinery. If we said the only hurdle was our minds, what would we design for the sport of Jiu-Jitsu.

10,000 hours of gi manufacturing knowledge in one room, and a blank slate. We approached the equation with open minds. How does the body move on the ground? How does the body move when wrapped in the fabric? How does the fabric move against the vinyl mat? How do these three things work together? More importantly,  how do they work AGAINST one another? Where does it bind and how can we free your body from friction?

What fiber works best? How should it be woven? And most importantly, how should we map it, not just to the human form… how should it map to your body DURING DYNAMIC MOTION?

It started with the idea that to wrap a piece of paper around a sphere and get it smooth would be impossible. But taking that same paper and cutting strips will allow you to spiral the paper around the sphere, becoming smooth and streamlined. This concept led us in the direction of a multi panel, body mapping system called the ORIGIN™ Spiral Wrap Cut©. Which utilizes seven panels of fabric, starting from the spine, the panels spiral symmetrically around your body.

We also asked, how should it stretch, or should it stretch? If the fiber was right, if the yarn was right, if the textile was woven right, why would we need extra reinforcement panels? Can we make it stronger and lighter, stripped down, lightweight like a performance car?

The answer to all these questions took 12 months, undocumented hours of research and development, and 100,000 dollars in custom machinery. We didn’t know the answer until we could test the equation in physical form. The answer was… YES!

We developed a proprietary, pre-shrunk PolySynth© yarn, engineered to be 10x stronger than our existing yarn, and 100x stronger than the industry standard. When twisted, the hexagonal structure of the staple fibers interlock with one another, allowing moisture to to pass between the weave, but not get absorbed into the yarn itself. This would be the foundation for DragonWeave© GEN 3.

When the first fabric came off the loom, it was almost too good to be true. We abused it, washed it, dried it, and like Damascus steel, the fabric got better with time. We could say it was engineered, but that’s too technical, we could say it was forged, but that’s too literal. It’s the union of ideas, technology, engineering, bio-mechanics, and inspired by the art of Jiu-Jitsu itself. Simply put, the RIFT was SYNTHESIZED.

The culmination of 5 years of learning, weaving, manufacturing, bleeding, and training birthed not just a textile, but a product that should never exist. And the only reason it was created was because we decide to build a factory in the woods of Maine 5 years ago. The RIFT was born because it had to be.

All seams are locked together in such symmetry and flow, that the seams themselves terminate to a singular point. Watching the RIFT come together is like watching a Russian ballet. It’s so perfect that after the final stitch has been complete, not a single thread is left to trim.

The Difference is Our Proprietary Technologies


Performance Yarn 100x Stronger
GEN 3 Performance Textile
Dynamic Motion Body Mapping Cut


High Tensile Strength PolyCore
Always Airy / Dry As You Train
Performance Pants Blend
Belt Closure System


The Rift Gi isn't just different, our sizing for this Gi has also changed.
The Rift will fit different from Origin Gis of the past.

We've based our patterns off of standard American sizing and because these Gis are an out of the box fit, there will be no shrinking of the product.

Therefore, it is important to order your Rift Gi based off of your standard T-Shirt or Jacket size.
These sizing guidelines should be used as a guide only, not an end-all.

For more information on sizing, please watch our sizing video.

    Best gi on the market, hands down.

    Posted by Justin on Sep 16th 2019

    Look no further. There is no better quality. The fit, finish, and feel of this gi is legendary. As soon as they’re back in stock, I’ll be replacing the rest of my lineup within rift’s as well.

    By far the best gi ever. Material feels like silk pajamas.

    Great Gi

    Posted by Jerry Gonzalez on Sep 10th 2019

    By far my new favorite Gi.

    Didn’t know what to expect and was really difficult to pull the trigger due the price. But WOW! So impressed! The weave is amazing, it’s super light weight, feels amazing, fits almost perfect. I think if I got another 1 I would go down a size rather than the recommended upsize. I will never buy another brand gi again. Nothing even compares to the quality of this gi and I wish I could afford a second one as my backup.

    2019 Black Rift

    Posted by Steven McKinley Harris on Aug 24th 2019

    This Gi fits like a comfortable old robe immediately out of the packaging. It's strong where you need it, and completely comfortable to you as well as anyone else who encounters it. It holds up very well for big guys, I'm in an A5 and I weigh 270 lbs. and I haven't heard the stitch pops and crackling like I do in cheaper Gi's when someone keeps a grip while I lift them off the mat or fight really hard for a position during a scramble. Very high quality, very comfortable, American Made, what more could you ask for?

    Forget everything you know about a Jiu-Jitsu gi, forget the price, forget the wait time, forget about your "favorite gi".

    I received the DNA as a birthday gift. It was too big so I called Origin, and a real person answered the phone. Kira was great and made the return process simple and was able to help me determine the right size. I returned it and ponied up the extra cash for the Rift and it came in yesterday.

    I am only 5 years into my journey but have owned Hypnotik, Hyabusa, Tatami, Ronin, Fuji, Lucky, and NOTHING remotely compares to this.

    Never felt a fabric like this. The weave is like Teflon, slides on the mat so well that I literally moved better. The air-dry tech actually does what they say. I train in Florida, without air conditioning, and after 2 hours of hard rolling the inside was dry, outside was sweaty, no clue how they did that. The pants are straight DOPE, they are fitted to your waist size!

    Tons of compliments and questions from the guys at the academy. My coach is an 11X IBJJF World Champion and he was all about it.

    I am 6ft, 195lbs, 32-inch waist, and the Large jacket and 34" pants fit like a glove.

    I am sure this sounds like an ad for Origin, it isn't. This is my first review of a product, EVER. I have just never purchased anything that actually lived up to the description. This is a classic case of under-promise and over-deliver.

    Light and Comfortable

    Posted by Alex on Aug 12th 2019

    I wanted to get a few weeks rolling in this before writing. I can say that the Rift Gi is the most comfortable Gi I've ever worn. It's also so light, which makes the training these past humid months much more bearable and I'm able to focus more on learning/technique than how hot it is between rolls. Would def. Recommend to anyone who's on the fence.

    Just a side note, when I ordered my Gi I ended up ordering the wrong pants size. Origin was extremely helpful in swapping me to the size necessary and in a reasonable time. Customer service gets a solid 5/5 from me as well, you've made a loyal customer.

    Rift Gi

    Posted by Michael David on Aug 10th 2019

    This is BY FAR the best gi I've ever purchased, seen or felt in person.

    When you roll for hours and the mats are coated with sweat and your gi get's heavy, well this one doesn't...it stays light and does not absorb any noticeable amount of sweat.

    It spins on the mat with ease, doing drills where you are trying to pull yourself using your back/gi are a nightmare because the thing just slides on the mats, doesn't stick much at all....which is great for rolling.

    The only thing that sucks about the gi is once you get one you'll never be able to purchase a cheaper gi ever again. No way I could go back.
