Tatami Fightwear was established in 2009 in the United Kingdom and was founded by Gareth Dummer and Lee Jones to address the need for high quality BJJ products at affordable prices. Gareth, a brown belt in BJJ, was involved in teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in low income areas and found it increasingly difficult to find high quality products at prices his students could afford.
That's when Tatami Fightwear was founded. Since then we have worked to build a strong brand reputation, develop and manufacture high quality products, support academies and stores globally. Our products are now available from over 300 academies, 100 online stores and in over 30 countries worldwide. We are also proud to sponsor some of the worlds greatest Jiu Jitsu athletes such as JT Torres, Vitor 'Shaolin' Ribeiro, Alexander Trans, Robson Moura, Dean Lister, Pablo Popovitch, Michelle Nicolini and Mike Fowler. Also, we support talented up and coming Jiu Jitsu athletes with our sponsorship programme.
