Batch #72 kimono delivers the perfect balance of beauty and strength. This kimono is part of our athlete inspired series dedicated to the journey and accomplishments of one of our most decorated athletes. Aside from being a multiple time IBJJF World Jiu Jitsu Champion, she is also a role model, not only to the female competitor, but for all Jiu-Jitsu competitors and practitioners alike who understand the dedication and sacrifice it takes to be the best that you can be on and off the mat. Sprinkle this with an infectious smile and genuine good vibe and the result is, "Gezary Matuda”.
Celebrating Gezary’s Brazilian and Japanese heritage, a few highlighted details from this project include the Japanese kanji embroidery which translates to Rebel Grappler. There is also the presence of the Peony Flower. This flower is not only a strong symbol of beauty, fragility, and the transitory nature of existence, it also reminds us that yielding great rewards is only possible if you are willing to take great risks. This indeed embodies the athlete we’ve all come to know and love and we look forward to seeing it on a podium near you.
