A jiu jitsu gi is a training uniform for a jiu jitsu fighter. It is similar to a judogi, but it has tighter cuffs on both the jacket and the pants. This allows the wearer of the gi to benefit from a tighter fit with less material for his opponent to grab. Like judo, the jiu jitsu gi is often referred to as a kimono.
Jiu jitsu is a Brazilian martial art and self defense technique that emphasizes ground fighting and grappling. Jiu jitsu techniques were derived from Kodokan judo in the early 1900s.
