Craig Jones is known for taking second place and wearing flamboyant BJJ apparel. From rashguards that say “subscribe to my only fans” to his “Mexican Ground Karate” shirts – it’s uncommon to see him wearing something plain. Now you too can make a statement at your BJJ gym with
The Importance of High-Quality Grappling Apparel for BJJ
While sometimes people do get away with wearing t-shirts and Nike shorts at no-gi class, sooner or later you will want to invest in some gear that is made specifically for BJJ. Nothing says “white-belt” louder than coming to class with an old t-shirt that has the collar stretched down to your belly button, or wearing a pair of old basketball shorts to practice.
There is also another problem with wearing clothes not built for BJJ. Loose-fitting workout pants can slide right off when your opponent puts you in half guard or is trying to take you down. Needing to re-tie your belt in the gi is a slight nuisance – but having to put your pants back on mid-roll is a whole different level! So high-quality grappling shorts are a must!

Another nice thing about the pants is how easy it was to remove them after class or during a bathroom break. Sometimes, wrestling pants can make it difficult to make a quick run to the toilet because of how tightly they wrap around the waist. But these pants offered no problems – staying on when I wanted them to stay on, and easily coming off when I wanted them off.
Possible Downsides of XMartial
I have to admit that these pants are so stylish, I fear other people in my gym are going to start trying to steal Craig Jones’ look.
Big Style Meets Surprising Quality
I have to say, I was very surprised by the quality of these pants. I didn’t really know what to expect before I opened the package, but now I can say that I would absolutely wear these to a competition. Win or lose, you know people will be watching you.
