Storm Kimonos® is proud to announce the addition of multiple times World BJJ and 2009 ADCC Absolute Champion Braulio Estima to it’s T1ER ONE™ team. Braulio Estima known as one of the finest modern day jiu-jitsu minds joins a roster that includes Rafael and Guilherme Mendes, Andre Galvao and Renzo Gracie. The head of Gracie Barra Birmingham, UK has collected a long list of titles. Coming back to competition from a debilitating neck injury and surgery, he impressed the world by defeating Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in the headline 2011 ADCC super fight. Braulio goes forward in 2012 with the intention of ramping up his foray into the world of MMA. The combination of his distinct knowledge in jiu-jitsu, submission grappling and MMA make him a perfect complement to the Storm Kimonos® T1ER ONE™ program.
Storm Kimonos® a core jiu-jitsu lifestyle brand and pioneer in the US and World Jiu-Jitsu scene debuted in 1996. Storm Kimonos developed the "Cohagen" Gi with the help of Renzo and Rodrigo Gracie due to a demand for hard to get BJJ kimonos in the United States. The brand was the first to sponsor and support fighters like John Lober, Gordinho, Ricardo Almeida, Matt Serra, Nick Serra and John Danaher when they needed quality equipment during the early days of jiu-jitsu and MMA.
2012. Continuing with their ground breaking ideas, Storm Kimonos has launched an entirely new line featuring products, which include the Typhoon, Typhoon 2.0 (T2), the 96 Competitor (96), Andre Galvao "Equilibrio", as well as an entirely new line of casual wear. To celebrate the launch of the entirely new updated 2012 catalog and line of products Storm Kimonos is proud to announce the roll out of Storm Kimonos® T1ER ONE™.
The Storm Kimonos T1ER ONE program consists of the top minds and athletes in the world of jiu-jitsu. These greats include Renzo Gracie, Andre Galvao, and the Mendes Brothers and now Braulio Estima as current Storm Kimonos ambassadors. The criterion for selection as a T1ER ONE representative is stringent. T1ER ONE is the vanguard for all sponsored Storm Kimonos athletes and endeavors. T1ER ONE represents a major leap in the development in the coordination of marketing, products, seminars and communications. The goal is to expand the development of jiu-jitsu globally via the T1ER ONE team.
