Nine is a special number for this brand so the 9th chapter needed to be something different and unique. In Japanese 'Kitsune' means fox and these animals are common in Japanese folklore. While sometimes the foxes trick others in the folktales where kitsune appear, many times the foxes are seen as faithful guardians, friends, lovers, and wives. The legends say that the more tails the kitsune has the more powerful it is. Nine tails being the most a fox may posses though. If this gi has supernatural powers then it certainly has the maximum level that a nine tailed fox would have. Hopefully you feel like you have a few extra tricks up your sleeve when you break this gi out on the mat.

The design comes from artist @ashton.alexandr who specializes in a neo traditional and Japanese tattoo style. There are no words or even our brand name on this kimono, only Japanese symbols including the number nine on the chest and the symbol for 'kitsune' on the pants.

    Why Nine Lives?

    Look Good, Feel Good, Roll Good

    Our aspirations are to build a world wide family who already share a common interest in Jiu Jitsu and further refine that to a crew of folks who align with our passions. Nine Lives was established on an affinity for looking good in the streets as well as on the mats. Look good, feel good, roll good. Nine Lives is not reinventing the wheel with our Jiu Jitsu uniforms, but rather focusing on the principles of classic, clean design with a playful vibe.

    Testimonials

    Phil Knight (NIKE) said “A brand is something that has a clear-cut identity among consumers, which a company creates by sending out a clear, consistent message over a period of years until it achieves a critical mass of marketing.” NineLives is something that embodies this and is a brand I have grown to love over the years! This has been my favorite Gi brand since starting my Jiu-Jitsu journey! I recommend this brand for anyone looking for a reliable company who stands by their product!!

    I think were all pretty used to the thin rash guard and spat material that"s great until a hole is worn into it. This isn't that, its got enough thickness to hold and not lose a grip over but also breathable. I'm thinking along the lines of Carhart like durability.
