About us

VULKAN emerged back in 2002 with the purpose of revolutionize the Jiu Jitsu market with a Gi that would be not only strong and resistant but also light and comfortable to the athlete. The founder and CEO, Matheus Costa combined all the elements to put this project together and in 2004, Vulkan created the very first Pro-Light Gi which is a benchmark worldwide up to today's days. Later in 2009, Vulkan raised the game again bringing the lightest Gi ever made in the market, the Ultra-Light Gi. Vulkan paved the way for the concept of “light Gi’s” in the Jiu Jitsu industry. Vulkan's product line is extensive and combines our bread and butter PRO & ULTRA with Special Edition Gis, Limited Edition Gis, Exclusive Fits and much more.

The brand keeps its own manufacturing factory in Brazil where Jiu Jitsu took on a life of its own with Gracie family that received the knowledge of Mitsuo Maeda over 100 years ago. The martial art/sport has evolved tremendously. It became so popular that the sport was brought to the United States in the late 80’s early 90’s before the UFC started. 

VULKAN is one of the first pioneers responsible for bringing Gi’s to the U.S. Quality is NEVER sacrificed. So much attention is payed to the little details and consistency is key when exceeding customer expectations!
