About Killer Bee Gi

My name is Jesse Bellavance and I have been doing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since 1997, way back in Morgantown, West Virginia at Ground Zero Jiu-Jitsu. From there I moved to the Fredericksburg, Virginia area where I trained at Trident Academy in Woodbridge under Pat Trey and earned my Blue belt.

After a few years, I discovered a school more local to my residence under the great leadership of Chad Lebrun of The Lab. Under him, over the course of seven years, I earned my Purple belt and in May of 2009 my Brown belt.

In July of 2009, I moved to the Charlottesville area and trained at Charlottesville BJJ under Gordon Emery until 2020.

All of these teachers have provided me with something that I carry with me today when ever I go out on the mat. To all of my teachers, I wish to say thanks.

I STARTED KILLER BEE GI IN 2010.

My goal was to provide a different buying experience for BJJ gi’s. Originally, I offered customers the ability to mix and match sizes and in 2015 I began offering customers the ability to customize their own BJJ Gi.

In July of 2019, I began working with a web developer to build a website that would allow one to purchase a Made-To-Order gi using a real-time mockup program.  I offer many different options and now give the customer the ability to upload their own embroidery graphics.

I have expanded this to include Custom Belts and now Custom Rash Guards.

I cannot promise you that my gi's will make you a top-level performer. That is within you and not the gi. I can promise I will provide you garments for the mat that are functional, durable, and of similar quality as those sold by other manufactures for twice the cost.

Disclosure:

Our BJJ gi's are made overseas in Pakistan. I have been using the same company for over ten years.  I am based in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Our rash guards are printed and shipped in the U.S. and sourced from China.

Thanks for checking out my site and I hope to be able to serve you in the future.
