I started The Grumpy Grappler three years ago come this August. During this time, I have not posted as regularly as I had intended, but a number of things have come up along the way--a marriage, buying a new house, going up for tenure, a neck surgery, and life more generally. There have nevertheless been nearly 200 posts over the years, and the blog has received more than 70,000 unique page views. Indeed, when my posts make their way to R/BJJ, I can easily receive 1.000+ views in a day or two. That said, now I am finally in a good place to start to posting more frequently (having just received tenure a few months ago!). So, I wanted to line up some affiliate partners for the blog. The first company that stepped up is Yolo BJJ (see their banner on the right hand of the page). They seem to have some nice gear. I plan to order a rash guard and a gi soon. I will keep you posted once I have some products to test! In the meantime, please feel free to use the link to the right if you want to check out any of their gear. Thanks in advance to the folks at Yolo BJJ for their support. Hopefully, I will line up more partners for the blog in the weeks and months ahead.
For instance, this rash guard has an awesome aesthetic:
