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.

    This is my first Origin Gi and it totally exceeded my expectations.

    The measurement guides are accurate, shipping to NZ was fast, it's so light that I'm no longer a walking puddle after warmups, I'm not frustrated when adjusting my pants rope any more, and if I throw it in the washing machine and forget about it for an hour or so, it's nearly dry when I take it out.

    Thank you.

    Best Gi Yet!

    Posted by Kelvin Yen on Jun 11th 2019

    The is my second Origin gi and probably my eighth gi overall. This one is by far the best gi in terms of material and fit. My previous Origin gi was a little bit wider than I usually like, but this one fits me perfectly (I have a small to medium build). The material is one of the softest that I've felt and I also like the fact that I can dry this gi without any shrinkage. It's on the higher end in terms of price, but it's totally worth it.

    Origin Rift

    Posted by Ten on Jun 2nd 2019

    I've owned more gis than most practitioners. And this is my 4th Origin. They've always been ahead of the curve in terms of comfort and progressive ingenuity. The first thing I always told people about Origin kimonos, was the comfort of the pants were groundbreaking, and unparalleled in BJJ. But now they've done it again, with the gi top as well. I've NEVER, EVER, had a gi top feel this comfortable. The way it conforms to your body, in a non-restrictive way, blows my mind. PLUS, it feels like it's comfy enough to wear while sitting at home in front of he fireplace. Bravo, Origin. Shut up and keep taking my money.

    Rift gi

    Posted by Brandon on May 19th 2019

    This is my third origin gi, I’ve got an Athleta (perfect), an Axiom (nice material not a great fit), and now this.

    I don’t really have words to justify how nice this gi feels, it’s lighter, stronger, softer, sturdier and as for how it looks, it actually mocks my subpar jiu Jitsu by looking fantastic after I’ve been run through the wringer. This is definitely the nicest gi that I’ve ever owned and my opponents love the way that it feels when they choke the life out of me. It’s been said that this gi eliminates their armbar induced groin pain.

    Jokes aside it’s a fantastic gi and for how long my Origins have been lasting I’m thrilled to add it to the rotation. This gi is five star all the way.

    Black Magic Darkness

    So out of the box I knew this Gi was different, it’s one thing to read about and another thing wear it. After getting a good training session, on a scale of 1-10 my BJJ went to a solid 1.5. Seriously, the product is definitely next level. I looked good and felt good while my professor and upper belts repeatedly choked me to help “break it in.” 10/10 would recommend.
