Elevating Women’s Jiu Jitsu
Gaidama was founded by women who roll hard. We were tired of the flimsy, see-through fabrics and played out unisex cuts that are so well-known to women’s grappling spats. We were tired of wearing shorts on top or compression shorts underneath, or worse worrying about what was showing too much and where. We were tired of having to pull up our waistband between rounds to hide peeping panties or half moons. We were tired of a lot of things. What we wanted was the ultimate pair of women’s grappling spats, but they didn’t exist. So we made them.
Supporting Small Business
We have a lot of missions at Gaidama, but one of the ones we like to highlight is our dedication to small business. At every opportunity we aim to give our business to those working at the grassroots level, because we’ve been there. We know exactly how hard it is to thrive as a small business in a corporate world. We believe that the most character and best service are found in our community’s boutique businesses.
Preserving Our Planet
Another core mission at Gaidama is the preservation of our common Mother, our planet Earth. Things like the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, our dying reefs, and our dwindling forests fill us with great sadness and inspire us to support change. That’s why we make quarterly donations to charities and non-profits working on the front lines to reverse the damage and preserve what we can. Our target charities change every quarter, but one of our favorites is The Ocean Cleanup Project. It’s also why we print all packing slips on 100% recycled paper and ship items in 100% recycled and recyclable poly mailers by EcoEnclose which can be resealed and reused to send back products for returns and exchanges.
