Custom rash guard by grapplingscience

Each ripple in the material represents the stages to make a custom rash guard.


Thats a lie I just thought it looked more pleasing to the eye. To be honest.

Nothing is equal but we can still grow and win

We don’t have equal starting points in life, we don’t all get held back or an easy push to the front but regardless of where we all start.. at the end of the day… where we are going is really up to us.

OPPORTUNITY.jpg

I honestly believe people quit just a little too soon, just too soon on your dreams. Imagine if you stopped trying every time a submission failed, or an escape failed or you failed at a competition. You would keep trying, you would keep rep’ing you would keep getting better. I honestly believe that’s 90% to getting a better life, building a better landscape, just believing in yourself, staying the course and don’t quit. Just keep looking for new ways to win.

I am 24/7 all about this life. I’m the artist, the customer service advisor, the decision maker in fact I do almost everything apart from deliver the custom made rash guard factory fresh to your door. When you are looking for custom rash guards I literally look after you, from the first email to the moment you message me to say the clothing has arrived. If you email me you will get the same service ordering one custom rash guard as you would if you ordered wholesale custom rash guards. For me every customer is the best form of advertising possible. I never miss an opportunity to give value with each exchange.

Custom Bjj Rash guards and custom spats

_DSC0301.JPG

I’ve been grappling for a few years and I’ve bought and worn, literally, hundreds of rash guards. I have them all, ones from China, ones from Pakistan, ones from Poland, some from Lidl, Sports Direct...even one from Toys R Us (that’s a lie) I’ve even got one made from llama lashes.

 

Quick history lesson:

Back in the 1100’s when rash guards became cool the artwork was screen printed onto the rash guard. Screen print is like a thick paint, literally, pressed onto the top. For normal tee shirts and hoodies etc. screen printing is perfect. Rash guards overtime get pulled and stretched which will cause screen printed artwork to start to crack and fade and eventually disappear leaving a residue of the once loved design. Now, good quality rash guards are made using sublimation techniques. Well, I do this at least but I understand why not everyone uses sublimation... it costs more, it needs different machines, different skill sets and cost’s thousands pounds more in a large run. But you also get the very best product. With Grappling Science rash guards I promise you get lifelong fresh paint like artwork. That’s why I talk about them so much. From my rash guards it’s not just fresh jiu jitsu designs everyday it’s also lifelong fresh paint like artwork you get, all my own custom art for all of us mat rats!

 

 

Function Composition and Types:

Generally speaking rash guards are designed to wick moisture away from the body and help the athlete stay as cool and dry as possible. Your rash guards deserves to be constructed with flatlock stitching, which allows the seam to lie flat to the garment instead of hanging loose. With flatlock stitching the garment strength is increased and minimizes chafing that can sometimes occur from garments with traditionally stitched seams. Rash guards are usually made of polyester/nylon and lycra/spandex. They are designed to fit tightly to the body, while at the same time being stretchy allowing a full range of motion. Some very cheap versions are very thin and flimsy, they are unsuitable and won’t last, don’t get me wrong sometimes you can get a thin rash guard that is durable however the nature of our sport is aggressive and the material and stitching should be up to the job, that’s why with Grappling Science rash guards the material is made thicker with a higher standard placed on my stitching and fit. I take 100% control and responsibility over the material used. Over 20 factories and 26 material changes later, I take personal pride over my rash guards, I want you to try the rest and then see what 15% thicker material selected by a trained sport scientist is really like.

 

Sizing:

Many people don’t know this but I’ve made rash guards for tiny people as well as fully grown adult giants –now a 6XL is the biggest I’ve went and to be honest I’m always looking to break records. I’ve made bespoke rash guards made to measure, bespoke to our physical differences; I’ve made custom rash guards for the tallest and shortest of jiu jitsu grapplers. I believe customer service should come with flexibility. If my website shows small to 3XL and you want a 9XL I think it’s down to me to get you a 9XL rash guard and if you want a panda sitting on the throne imitating Conan the Barbarian you know where to find me.

 

BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU CUSTOM RASH GUARDS

AND CUSTOM SPATS

I am always looking for ways to solve issue’s in the community, that way I know I’m genuinely helping rather than just advertising products. It also feels good to know you are making a difference. That brings me to the jiu jitsu communities problems around rash guards and spats.

Common problems with customised rash guards.

1, They can take around 8 to 10 weeks.

2, You can only put your name on the companies design.

3, Very poor customer service.

4, Poor fitting clothing. I receive a lot of emails from our larger members in the community and females in the grappling community both highlighting the same issue. Ill fitting clothing.

5, Spats that are see through.

 Why am I so happy about my service with customised jiu jitsu gear?

1, I have a turn around times roughly 4 weeks!

2, You can include your name anywhere you want, even your club logo  and also your own art.

3, My customer service is exceptional because I take pride in each and every order personally.

4, I offer bespoke fitting, from 2 extra small to 6 X large.

5, My spats are made with a thicker material.

6. My rash guards are 15% thicker, try others this rash guard is guaranteed you never go back. 

7. You have your own artist to hand to help with creating fresh designs.

8. I literally create designs every day all you have to do is go to my Brazilian jiu jitsu custom instagram @grapplingscience account to see all my designs, every day. I also include bjj drills, bjjart and more. 

You can select any of my designs all made personally, you can have it on the centre chest and or the back. You can have your name or logo anywhere you like. Because I am a designer myself I can take great care over your own design. Each step of the way. You will always receive a final version to be checked and when you are happy, it goes to print.

As everything is sublimation you are guaranteed life long fresh paint like artwork with sport science designed clothing, custom art for all us mat rats. 

Who would benefit from a custom pair of spats or rash guard

  1. Jiu jitsu athletes with sponsors, that is GI and no Gi.
  2. MMA fighters who need sponsors on the shorts.
  3. Someone looking for a gift for their partner of friend that grapples. A custom rash guard makes an amazing present.
  4. Someone who has their own club and wants a few rash guards/spats with their own logo or club name.
  5. Someone who finds rash guards very difficult to fit properly. I can help by offering a  bespoke service, looking at neck, chest, waist and sleeve length measurements.

 

I ship worldwide.  Payment via paypal however alternatives can be made.  I work closely with each design until you are happy.

Designing everyday

Just finished the design to my new shorts,: 'Original'.

grappling science shorts

One of the emails I get the most is to recommend I create more colourful grappling gear. I think I have a subconscious love for black and white. I'm always pursuing and reaching for Bold, Crisp fresh designs; 360 versatility in textile to engineer the greatest built grappling shorts. Just as I took a last look before saving from vector to jpeg it got me thinking, have I seen similar to this before? was it ... ''Dan Dare'' not sure entirely why so I went hunting and came across a front cover to one of the old magazines..

Dan Dare appeared on the cover of the first issue of the weekly comic strip magazine, Eagle, on 14 April 1950.

Movie watch Sling Blade: 1996 (15)

 

One if the reasons I love Sling Blade is because  "Sling Blade," the 1996 film written and directed by and starring Billy Bob Thornton, is not an easy film to have on in the background. It's gripping and demanding of your attention, dark, believable and sad, Sling Blade.

Starring Billy Bob Thornton, Lucas Black and John Ritter, 'Sling Blade' tells the story of a quiet man named Karl who finally returns home 25 Years after committing an unthinkable crime. Once there, he’s befriended by a fatherless boy and his mother, but when his newfound peace is shattered by the mother’s abusive boyfriend, Karl is suddenly placed on a collision course with his past. For more from Sling Blade: http://miram.ax/slingblade

This is my recommendation if you are like me and addicted to movies! great one if you are injured and need a movie marathon!

What else has everyone seen him in? bad santa? anything else? 

"Sling Blade" is, without a doubt, one of the best independent films ever made with a near perfect combination of strong script, focused direction, solid performances down to the smallest role, and beautiful cinematography. Sadly, it suffered the fate of last year's "The Woodsman," a stellar film limited by its intimidating, well presented subject matter and with performances so strong the film is "too much" for your general filmgoing audience. 

"Sling Blade" is one of those "must see" films for true connoisseurs of film. It is not a film that every connoisseur will absolutely adore, but it is a film that simply begs to be seen by those who respect the craft of filmmaking. "Sling Blade" is exhausting yet exhilarating, troubling yet insightful, and powerful yet numbing. "Sling Blade" is a film you may not embrace, but I guarantee you will not forget.

Confidence

_DSC038112.jpg

"Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful." Mark Victor Hansen Coming from a person wearing pink spats down by the docks in the middle of the day no less, you might not believe this, but I didn't always have confidence. But see it's a little like my gun show. I didn't always have guns, I had to work to get the guns. The gun gods never shined on me, my gun show came from hard work and now it's there and everyone can see it. Sometimes we can't see the work we put in on ourselves or where we should source our confidence from. I might not tap everyone in the room tonight in training (I def' won't) but I’m confident about my jiu jitsu skills regardless because of all the hours I've put in on the mat, all the injuries and sacrifices made. So when I go to a competition to get armbarred again I’m thoroughly confident that regardless of the outcome of the armbar submission I'll get caught with because there is a massive hole in my defence i'm absolutely fine about, I’m going to bring it every time. I'm not confident because of my wins but from the hard work I’ve put in. That’s where your confidence should come from too!
