While this isn't exactly a 'local gear review', I think it's worth putting out there that one of the latest emerging brands for gis and grappling gear, TROIA, is now available in Malaysia via Marcos Escobar. If you kept up with the fashions at the 2009 Mundials, you'll have noticed a number of key fighters sporting the new brand. Lucas Leite and Grabriel Vella to name a couple. Below are some basic details:
