EXTREME FIGHTING BATTLECADE
My Mission is to visit and train with every Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy in the United States in 2012, represent this strong brand and Ambassador the sport and Lifestyle I love.Our Worldwide debut began with John Lober in 1996 during Battlecade’s Extreme Fighting. Since then our products have been seen in events like Pride and the UFC and a host of major competitions around the World.
Storm Kimonos® products were developed with the assistance of Renzo and Rodrigo Gracie. Considered one of the first US Jiu-Jitsu and MMA brands, innovation began in 1995 with the prototyping of the “Cohagen” GI. Storm Kimonos® was the first to sponsor and support fighters like John Lober, Gordinho, Ricardo Almeida, Matt Serra, Nick Serra, and Jon Danaher when they needed quality equipment during the growth of the sport. We were with these fighters when they first stepped onto the competitive mat, ring, cage, octagon and the hallowed mats of the ADCC.
Today, Storm Kimonos® have launched an entirely new line featuring products which include the Typhoon, Typhoon 2.0, the 96, Andre Galvao Custom as well as an entirely new line of casual wear to support our technical line of performance gear. We continue to innovate by listening to our athletes. Ours is a profound respect for the art. Jiu-Jitsu is not just a sport for us, or the fighters that rely on our equipment - It’s a lifestyle!
