      Planning Your 2024 BJJ Season

      Planning Your 2024 BJJ Season

      While some may have already given themselves a head start on planning their 2024 year, let’s be honest… most of us have procrastinated. Now in February, you might just now be getting around to figuring out how you want your year to look.

      That includes your 2024 jiu-jitsu competition season. But where do you start?

      Unless you’re a brand new white belt, you’ve been here before. And you’ve probably already experienced that sinking feeling when, suddenly you realize – in, say November – that you haven’t nearly accomplished all that you’ve set out to do.

      You’re not alone. We’ve all been there. The great part about a new year is that you can brush off last year and start afresh, this time with greater determination to do better. And you will. Because we’re here to help.

      UPDATED: The Ultimate Kingz BJJ Gi Guide

      UPDATED: The Ultimate Kingz BJJ Gi Guide

      Nearly three years ago we put out our first Ultimate Kingz BJJ Gi Guide, and it has been one of our most-read blogs every year since. Why? Probably because you – our wonderful fans – have discriminating taste and you like to know what you’re buying. We respect that.

      But three years is a long time, and since then we’ve put out new iterations of our best sellers, as well as brand new models! We figured it was time to give our guide a much-needed refresh.

      So, without further ado, here are all our current running BJJ gi models, their individual specs, and a little bit about why we love them so much.

      The Best and Worst BJJ Goals for 2024

      The Best and Worst BJJ Goals for 2024

      The new year is well and truly upon us… but it’s not too late to create your list of goals for the year. In fact, procrastination is often a companion to inspiration. (This is what I often tell myself).

      What I like better than coming up with a single resolution for the year, is setting a list of goals. Why? Because if you have one single goal, failing to meet it can be a severe blow to your confidence. If you have a set of goals, you are almost guaranteed to meet – or partially meet – at least one or two. The trick is to make sure your goals are not only reasonable and attainable, but that any bit of success will deliver growth that you can be proud of. 

      Not sure where to start? We’ve created a short-list of the best and worst BJJ-related goals for the year...

      Kingz Athlete Spotlight: Rosa Walsh-McCann

      Kingz Athlete Spotlight: Rosa Walsh-McCann

      For decades, we’ve seen the sport of Brazilian jiu-jitsu dominated largely by Brazilian and American athletes, but in the last several years there has been a surge of talent arising from the European continent. Among this generation’s rising stars is Ireland’s Rosa Walsh-McCann.

      An incredibly prolific competitor in the European circuits, Rosa has been consistently hitting the podium in promotions both large and small, from well-established events such as IBJJF, AJP and ADCC to relative newcomers like Grapple Fest and Grapple Kings. Gi or no-gi, it doesn’t matter. She’s there. The last few years has seen Rosa travel often to the United States, training – and generally living her best life – with friend and coach Ffion Davies.
