“Established in 2012, Fight Culture Clothing is a brand that makes athletic wear designed for the warrior that lives among our civilized society. Our brand realizes that all fighters carry certain qualities inside their hearts that separate us from everyone else. We understand that in fight culture we are willing and eager to embrace hardships, whether on the mat, in the ring or inside the cage in order to be the best we can be. Therefore Fight Culture Clothing is committed to providing high quality apparel that will meet our need for intense training and competition. Most of us recognize that we will never be a World Champion or achieve Gold, but as fighters we are all linked by our desire to succeed – in our lives, at our jobs, for our families and to make a difference in the world.”
It is that time of year where some of you will either have broken your New Year’s resolution or your pushing forward with your goal. Either way what better way to start the year than getting yourself some new gear. We all know that great looking gear makes your game at least 1% better. At the end of the day there is only two options; you either win, or you learn so why not do it in style.
NOGI Industries is a brand that has been making quality grappling gear since 2003. They pride themselves in making quality gear for people that train, by people that train. In this review we will first be discussing the NOGI Industries Volt 2.0 Gray Trunks and NOGI Industries Long Sleeve Jet Rash Guard.
The NOGI Industries Volt 2.0 gray shorts are made of 100% polyester and come with a four way stretch crotch that makes them super tough (In the pictures above you can see the crotch section from thigh to thigh is black and is stretch fabric), color accented piping, embroidered logos throughout and a pretty sick PVC logo on the waist strap. The material is light and airy and made with 100% polyester for increased durability. They are available in waist sizes 28 all the way thru 42. The logos on the front and back are embroidered and give the shorts a sense of style without being over done.
LUTA is a unique fight wear company that focuses not only on innovative product design but also on their strong sense of social awareness and responsibility. As a company they share 50% of their profits with Fight for Peace International, an international organization that opens and runs academies combining boxing, martial arts as well as educational and personal development programs. The academies are in areas of the world where there are few opportunities for young people that don’t involve crime and violence. For this review LUTA sent their two most popular products: the MMA Performance rash guard and MMA fight shorts as well as their newest innovation the Laser Tech rash guard. My first introduction to LUTA was at BJJHQ when the MMA Performance rash guard was posted and promptly sold out. Luta offers rashguards, fight shorts, boxing training gear, and clothing.
From the LUTA website: Born in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, Luta is a new fightwear and lifestyle clothing brand that brings together real fight performance, favela street style and a genuine social mission.
LUTA, Portuguese for fight, was founded for three reasons: 1st - There was a need for really advanced performance fightwear and trainingwear. 2nd - I wanted to pay homage to the positive energy in the favelas and the strength I’d witnessed training young champions there since 2000. 3rd - I wanted to support those young champions in communities that suffer from crime and violence, by providing Fight for Peace with a profit share in the company.
