Martial Arts has always been a huge part of my life. As a child I studied Aikido, Judo, and Taekwondo so when I first saw Brazilian Jiu-jitsu I was immediately hooked. Like many, I didn’t understand how someone could be strangled by their own Gi. My curiosities lead me to purchasing one. My first Gi was a Judo Gi because BJJ was not as popular in Vietnam..
The Gi’s Shop was founded in 2014 due to the lack of accessible BJJ Gi’s in Vietnam. I saw that this was going to cause a big problem in our small growing BJJ community so I took initiative. I was fortunate in that my family owns a clothing company so that was a great place to start my new project, of designing and creating my own BJJ Gi’s.
I searched through fabric market across the city and also our own warehouse and found fabric that was used to make Judo Gi’s. I bought Judo Gi’s and began designing my first Gi’s from the Judo Gi. It wasn’t until my first BJJ coach showed me a proper BJJ Gi that I was able to understand the differences between Gi’s.
My team and I failed many times before creating the quality and craftsmanship of our Gi’s today. Being the only Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Brand from Vietnam, we not only aim to spread our quality of Gi’s to the world but also show our love for the Gentle Art. We stick to our motto: “National brand, Global value”.

I’m soooo thankful I chanced upon TheGisShop when I saw someone rocking a really nice looking gi at the gym. From start to end, Gis gave excellent service - always so friendly and eager to explain. Despite me wanting to customise this and that, he was ever accommodating and went above and beyond to make sure he got all the details and measurements right. When I received the gis, he constantly dropped in to check if things were in order, if it fit well and even sent in another pair of gi pants in a better fabric. I’m beyond impressed by such genuine service, you honestly raise the bar, Gis! As for the gi, I absolutely love it ???? everything came out perfectly and the attention to detail and quality of the gi even beats some of the high-end gi brands out there. Really appreciate it, cheers Gis and thank you again!Read more
Very Personalised Experience. Thegisshop was so welcoming and took the time to take customised measurements - the GI fit Perfectly. He let me customise the GI and had great attention to detail and so the design is amazing. I am from Europe and a Gi of this quality and customisation would be 3-4x the price! I even explained to him I was travelling and he made the Gi lightweight and much more transportable. I highly recommend this shop to anyone looking to buy a Gi, not only in Vietnam - but the whole of South East Asia.Read more
