Make Your Rash Guard (Smell) Great Again

You are a jiu jitsu nerd.

You feel like you and your rashie are one and John Danaher is your spirit animal. But one day something feels off. Your rash guard smells like garbage. You want to burn it and buy a new one.

Hold on! In this blog post you will find out how to get your rash guard back to its former glory.

Get your rashguard so fresh you can wear it at fine dining occasions with UFC champions.

Don’t let it get to the point of no return, so lets look at some basic care methods to keep your rash guard from emitting the stench of rotten cabbages.

1.) As soon as you finish training, wrap your wet clothes inside a dry towel. This will soak up some of the moisture.

2.) Do not leave your clothes inside your training bag for hours. As soon as you get home, throw your used gear into the washer. The less time for the fibers to soak up all those smelly germs, the better.

3.) Some food packagings contain little silica bags. Put a few of those in your gym bag and they will soak up a lot of the moisture and odor.

Silica Packages. Don’t eat them, but don’t throw them away either.

You wake up the next day and you forgot to wash your clothes…

Rancid germs have eaten into the fabric of your rash guard. Now it reeks of hot trash even after you wash it a trillion times.

The solution is: vinegar.

Add four table spoons of vinegar to your detergent and repeat if necessary. After about 2 or 3 washing cycles even the most gnarly rashguard will be purged of bacterial odor.

2019 Collection Launch

For the first time Dokebi is releasing a nogi set designed with men's and women's sizes. Introducing the "Temple" nogi rashguard and spats. The sleeves feature graphics inspired by traditional East Asian and contemporary street art. The letters on the back read “temple”.

Spats that are straight fire.

After the bestselling "Sriracha" rashguard you can now complement your top with matching spats. Goes well with both the red or black sriracha rashguards.

Available in men's and women's sizes.


Just in time for summer: Check out the new "Ghost" short sleeved ranked rash guards. Available in all BJJ rank colors.

New Construction

In previous iterations the full length of the sides were covered by mesh. This time we decided to come up with a more efficient solution by limiting the mesh to the top half of the side where most of the heat is emitted from the body. The cooler lower side is covered by lycra material.


What about the gi’s?

Great things take time. The same goes for well crafted clothing. The new Temple gi’s will be released mid- to end of may to guarantee you no less than the best quality. Subscribe to our newsletter so you are always up to date.

Starting 2018 with a bang


The Metal.Gi series was originally scheduled for a fall 2017 release. However, here at Dokebi we take our time with releasing new products to make sure you, our customer, is 100% satisfied.

We want you to know that we listen to your feedback, we see your wishes and we know you care about your training gear. Our mission as a martial arts brand is to deliver to you the best, most durable, most fulfilling training experience possible. That's why we're taking just a little bit more time to make sure our vision for the Metal.Gi series is in no way compromised and turns out to be the gi you deserve.

We are fully committed to the quality and to our awesome community that we could not, in good conscience, release a gi which isn't 100% to your liking.

The Metal.Gi series is headed for a January-Feburary release date.

Our designs go beyond the typical dragons and skulls (not that there is anything wrong with that). We create garments that feature artwork exclusive to our brand. However, there is more to martial arts wear than design. The materials and compositions of our fabrics are just as important. Dokebi's mission is to create functional and unique clothing for martial arts. Whether it's a day in the gym or your next competition, our clothing will keep you dry, protected and slick.

We have broken down some of the technical terminology used in bjj and performance wear, so you can find out all about the details that make our fabrics so special. 

What does Breathability mean?

Our fabric is tested to determine how easy it is for water vapour to travel from the inside to the outside. A breathable mesh will be more comfortable to wear, and will regulate the temperature as condensation is minimized. All our rash guards incorporate a mesh layer on the sides for the trademark ventilation feature. Look out for the upcoming Dokebi ranked rash guard slated for a spring release.

What is a Pearl Weave?

A pearl weave is thin and light compared to other weaves. The weave pattern is fairly uniform and is more densely woven than a regular single weave. Our pearl weave gis are durable, dry fast, and feel light. They have very little pilling, and do not stretch out as much as other softer weaves. This is why we took a liking to this construction. Our pearl weave models include the limited edition Eternal gi and the current Prime gi series.

What are Taped Seams and what do they do?

The stitching of the garment is normally a weak point of the clothing. Especially in contact sports there is a lot of wear and tear. We use a durable taping on all our gis to ensure that the seams don't come loose. Seams can also be used to complement the design features of the gi. The prime gi features a repeating "Dokebi-warrior" seam pattern that runs a long the sleeves and jacket of the gi.

Black Prime Gi

Prime Gi Black

The white "Prime Gi" which was released early summer '16 was truly a success in terms of composition as well as in popularity. We got a lot of requests for different color ways and so we decided to create a black model with crimson red embroidery to be released as the main attraction of our #SubmissionSeptember collection. Check out the cool teaser GIF we made below:
