Combat sports go beyond the physical. Fighting is a mental game that begins the moment two athletes square off in the center of the mat. With limitless variations of motions, techniques, and submissions, competitors are forced to make quick, yet rational decisions before making their next moves and going for the takedown. Designed to highlight the most skilled athlete rather than the biggest or strongest, it's the intricacy of technique and attention to detail that separates the good from the great. Working with a team of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champions and MMA icons, we developed the Fight Kit with the same meticulousness they show on the mat and in the ring. We thoughtfully considered every single detail to redefine no-gi BJJ gear and create a Fight Kit worthy of the legends that inspired it.
THE FIGHT KIT
THE WEAR TESTING TEAM
Developed with a diverse team of UFC contenders and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu legends, the Fight Short was built to meet the needs of martial artists of all kinds and skill levels. Always striving towards improvement, growth, and being Better Than Yesterday, we entered an unfamiliar product category, relying heavily on our team of expert wear testers and their unparalleled insight. We asked about their likes, their dislikes, and their non-negotiables for both their demanding training schedules and their grueling competitions. We examined the biggest pain points of their current gear, and we worked together relentlessly to reimagine modern fight gear. These men guided the entirety of this project – from initial concepting to prototype evaluation and wear testing – to ensure we were building a fight kit like no other.
"Ten Thousand finally developed the sleek and modern no-gi option that I've been waiting for. My mantra is "always moving forward," and Ten Thousand is the gear I choose to help empower my lifestyle."

"Mobility has always been crucial to my fighting style and Ten Thousand nailed it with the Fight Kit. The short’s deep side slit and knit gusset provide me with full range of motion no matter what plane I'm moving in. This gear is my new go to."

“This fight gear has filled a need I've had my whole career: to find quality clothing as tough as I am. My gear always breaks, wears down, and frankly disintegrates. The Fight Kit is as good as the day I got it."
