Hi there, this is my first blog post for Grappling Science. I will take this opportunity to introduce myself and my company.
I am a qualified Sport Scientist, specialising in Sport Injuries. I am also a Yoga teacher (But don't ask if I am flexible, the answer is no). I only use Yoga to prevent injuries and promote recovery. I have no interest in being as flexible as a Russian gymnast. My Sport Science, biomechanics and Yoga knowledge is what I want to share with the community; but, also, give an insight to those that may also want to start a new company. I will be offering some home truths about my journey and what I would have done more or less of.
A brief overview of Grappling Science as a business.
I am the designer of all the artwork. Based in the UK, Edinburgh. I also run the Social Media side including:
Instagram - @grapplingscience facebook - facebook/grapplingscience
Instagram is a mixed bag of my fan made video's of matches, some arty design stuff, insights to running the business... Including some yoga tips, injury prevention and more.
Facebook will be a little more different where I share more information on the next big event, dates and competitions for free gear and discounts.
We also host a youtube channel. If you have a match that you wish to upload simply send the link or contact me on facebook. All that we ask is we have basic info such as- where was the match and at least one opponents name. We are very happy for you to send us any of your competition footage and we will display it. I started doing this because last year I wanted to compete at the ADCC Uk in Stoke. But, I could not find footage of an ADCC UK comp. I hope my youtube channel makes it easier for people to find a competition, watch it and get a feel for how the next event will be like.
Basically I run the whole show. From Material selection, composition of panels, Stock, costing, advertising.. you get the picture. So, if you ask a question on facebook, here or instagram it's me that replies to you every time. If you are Competing in the UK and you see my Grappling Science Banner and table with all my products... it's me, come and say hi. You might even get something free! it's happened before.
