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 singular, pre-shrunk polyester 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 interlocked with one another, allowing moisture 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

SIZING GUIDELINES

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.

    Awesome GI Jacket

    Posted by kevin clark on May 6th 2019

    So I have a white Joco Def GI and love that one. The rift is something elese on another level. One of the guys I train with has the Axiom and the rift makes that one look and feel like a bargain buy from Target. The Rift feels amazing with the diamond cut weave. It's super light and breasy
    . It even moves in different ways, while shrimping across the mat it actually slid on the mat and moved on my skin in perfect balance. I hit about 5 omplatas from bottom open guard with ease, perfect movement.I got about 50 comments from my rolling partner's about how nice it was. Texas gonna be hot, but this will keep me cool and comfortable. I am Origin customer now for life. American made by Americans that support Americans. As a USMC vet that is important to me. TLDR, look awesome, feels incredible, Made in USA.

    My new favorite Gi

    Posted by Alex A. on Apr 20th 2019

    This gi is the perfect fit, the design is awesome like nothing else. I’ve been wearing Origin exclusively for the last 5 years, 5 times per week. I own Rift, Axioms, ProComp, Mist, Crimson, GET THIS GI, YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED! I can’t wait til other colors come out. If it pills shave it with a sweater shaver or roll til they come off.
