Holy Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi, Batman!
The very first in our collection of limited edition, officially licensed Fusion Fight Gear Batman jiu jitsu gis is based on the classic Frank Miller and Klaus Janson 1986 four issue comic book miniseries Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. This clasic comic really revolutionized the way that comics were viewed at the time and made it OK for adults to read comics. Not that we ever needed an excuse…
The epic story tells the tale of a 55 year old grisled Bruce Wayne who comes out of retirement, and takes place in a futuristic Gotham City. We are introduced to the new 13 year old Carrie Kelley as Robin in this series, which ends with Batman and Superman battling it out in the skies.
The artwork for this BJJ Gi is taken entirely from the original Batman: The Dark Knight Returns comic book, and the later collected editions.
The embroidered patches on the sleeves and the woven patch on the pants and inner lining are all taken from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Noir Edition covers.
The circular bat-signal logo embroidered onto the upper back, pants, and the lapel is taken right from the comic. It can be seen throughout the series, most notably featured on the news reporting program and in the sky as commissioner Gordon attempts to summon the Batman.
The interior lining is made of an awesome sublimated mesh material, and features a collage of artwork taken right from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns comic.
A thick, black-corded drawstring holds the pants up, so all you have to focus on is Jits. Reinforced silver belt loops with yellow tips keep everything neatly in place.
Silver contrast stitching is used throughout and really pops against the navy gi material.
The jacket is made of 550 GSM Japanese weave cotton; this gi is built to last, and to defeat even the toughest of opponents like The Joker or Bane.
We made the sleeves and pant legs slightly longer than most gis by an inch. The gi is pre-shrunk, but please remember that it will still shrink slightly if you wash it in hot and throw it in the dryer…not recommended unless you need to as this will not help prolong the life of your gi.
The pants are made of a super-soft 300 gram double twill cotton material that makes it feel like you’re wearing a pair of pyjama bottoms to the fight. Ultra-comfortable, yet super durable, and with an all new foam core drawstring that will hold up in battles against foes like Bane.
Comes with a collectible Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Gi bag, which features the iconic Issue # 1 comic cover on the design.
Sure to become an instant classic, this officially licensed Batman Gi is extremely limited, and each piece will be individually numbered. Once they have sold out, this BJJ gi will not be re-issued and will be retired. Limit 2 per customer.
Please note that this gi MAY not be IBJJF legal due to the color and collar piping.
Actual colors may vary slightly from photo.
