Recently I stumbled accross this article on what to pack for BJJ competitions, written by the guys at Grapplers Planet.
The article covers what to wear in terms of uniform, what to bring in terms of protective gear, what you must do in terms of hygiene, equipment and clothing, food and other stuff.
Check it out here.
“I always bring the latest Grappling magazine because it passes the time before your fight, and often stimulates conversation between other guys competing.”

“Underwear… you need new underwear after fights!”
– Mike Aviado – Blue Belt, Body of Four (Franco Behring)
“An extra Gi. You know…for those wardrobe malfunctions.”
– Dan SETH, Purple Belt, McMaster BJJ (Franco Behring)
“Ah, I bring an apple to help settle my stomach.”
