Fuji Suparaito BJJ GI

Fuji Suparaito Gi Review

Suparaito is the word for ‘super lite’ in Japanese. The Fuji line ‘SUMMIT’ is specially designed for the competitors, this Gi, The Fuji Suparaito, is a part of this line.

This Jiu-Jitsu Gi features a very light Pearl Weave jacket and is also featuring a rip-stop collar with extra reinforced rows of stitching. The pants are also ripping stop and strong. Furthermore this Fuji Suparaito Gi IBJJF is approved so you can use it in every tournament of your choosing.

Let’s see some other thing about Fuji Suparaito Gi:

1. Material


Made with 350 GSM cotton fabrics, the jacket is very soft to the touch. Living to its name- ‘Suparaito’ that translates as “Super Light” in Japanese, is an ultra-light wear. It offers extraordinary comfort even during the extra-long drill sessions and competitions.

The jacket has very high breathability. It, therefore, does not let the sweat accumulate and cause discomfort during hot and humid weather conditions.


Ripstop and cotton, the mix of the two top materials are what makes Suparaito rugged and long-lasting trousers. The trousers are further strengthened through triple-reinforced stitching.

Moreover, the extra reinforcement in the knee pads imparts extra ruggedness to the most fragile part of the trousers.

Apart from the durability and comfort BJJ pants need to stay secured in place during rough training sessions. The bungee cord drawstrings provided with the pants offer excellent snug around the waist. Besides, the four-belt loops give further security to the pants in the most difficult playing situations.

2. Design

FUJI gis mostly has simple and aesthetic designs. FUJI Suparaito BJJ Gi follows the league. It offers a clean design with a simple embroidery displaying, ‘FUJI Suparaito Kimono’ on the upper part of the left sleeves and the back of the jacket.

The Separate logo is also printed on the lower left part of the jacket. The brand letterings with the name ‘Suparaito’ run through the bottom edge of the jacket in English and Japanese characters.

Collar covering is made with ripstop cotton. The lapel is pretty thick and strong. The edges are strengthened and secured through reinforcement with tape and ripstop.

Overall, the Gi gives a very simple and cool appearance to the viewer and a highly comfortable experience to the wearer.

3. Colors

White, blue, and black are the three traditional colors of BJJ-gis. Fuji offers all three colors in its Suparaito brand. White and Black are for athletes who prefer a more traditional appearance.

For those who love to wear an unconventional outfit, blue adds to their attraction with its exclusive neon stitching.

How To Measure Your Gi Jacket And Pants
The main parts you’ll want to measure to ensure your Gi jacket fits perfectly are: • Wingspan – Wrist to wrist • Length – Below your butt to your neck • Chest – Armpit to armpit Similarly, you’ll want to ensure your gi pants fit perfectly too: • Waist – Side to side • Length – Ankle to waist • Hips – Hip to hip
What is the big difference in the blue and white uniforms?
There is no difference. If you are talking about royal blue and white uniforms, these are not different and both can be used for tournaments. Yes, some are quite stiff and you will definitely need to grapple for a short amount of time to roll comfortably with them.
Are You Supposed To Wear Shorts under A GI?
It’s required to at least wear underwear under your gi pants. Wearing shorts is recommended because many times in training your gi pants can be partially pulled down unintentionally. Wearing shorts under your gi can help to avoid an embarrassing situation.
What Do You Wear Under A BJJ Gi?
Most BJJ gyms now require you to wear something under your gi. Some people train with t-shirts under their gi top, but most now use rash guards. They help with all sorts of things, from preventing staph infections to reducing friction burns.
