I won a new me at Girls in Gis

After training last Friday, I got home and then logged into Facebook.  Guess what?  I won a free gi.  Yep, you heard me right, a free gi!!  Thanks Da Firma Kimono Company.  I can’t wait to get my new gi and train in it.  I will try to do a quick write-up after I’ve gotten it and had a chance to train in it for a bit.  In addition, these guys are the first I’ve seen to offer a short length.  They really do appreciate that we come in all shapes and sizes.  Check it out below.  Thanks again Da Firma!

This week will be filled with lots of work (I do have a day job), another acupuncture session, training BJJ, band parent meetings (yes, I am the proud parent of a band nerd) and getting ready for Spring Break next week.  I’m hoping to start our Spring Break off with Girls in Gis in Austin on Sunday, March 11th.  Ladies, if you are in the area, ready for a little road trip, bored, or even want to try jiu jitsu for the first time, come join us.  We will be at Paragon Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Austin, 6800 Westgate Blvd., Suite 116, Austin, TX 78745 from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m.    


  1. Congratulations!! That's awesome. They were raffling off a Predator that I hoped to win at the Open Mat this weekend, but even better, it was won by a girl who didn't own her own gi. Her happiness brought a tear to my eye. It was so cool!

  2. I've been meaning to congratulate you on the gi win! I feel special because I "know" you through blogging, and the other female winner is a former teammate of mine. =)

    I look forward to hearing how the gi is. It all sounds quite promising. I have recently had a horrendous experience with the fit of the Predadora gi, so I have pretty high hopes for Da Firma.
