Carhartt WIP has teamed up with US-based Jiu-Jitsu brand Hyperfly to create a capsule collection of custom Gis. Each one has been created in our iconic duck fabric, and is available in three colorways – navy, black and brown. Please note that Carhartt WIP stores will exclusively stock the black colorway only, with the other two colorways available through Hyperfly retailers.
Jiu-Jitsu is one of the oldest forms of Martial Arts known to man, originating more than 4,000 years ago from Buddhist monks from northern India. To protect their monasteries against invaders, the monks created a non-violent form of self-defense against much larger and stronger opponents. Without kicking or punching, the monks were still able to defend themselves. This nonviolent technique traveled to Japan where it evolved to what is now Jiu-Jitsu, translated from Japanese, “The Gentle Art.”
Hyperfly was founded in California in 2011, building on its mantra, “You Can’t Teach Heart” to foster a community of fighters who value authenticity, diligence, and perseverance.
