Okay so here's the dilemma - do you purchase your own Christmas gift now, or wait until you 'think' your loved one has ordered you your heart's most desired gi on the actual day? Oh and what about the January sales? Surely there will be some fightwear bargains to be had after Christmas, right?
Well here are a few things happening right NOW that you really should try to get a handle on.
First, my good friends over at Scramble, MMAOutlet and BJJWeekly are joining forces to do something cute - they're offering you the chance to win a Scramble package including Scramble rash gear and tees, an incredible $50 voucher from MMA Outlet, and one of BJJ Weekly’s fine jiu jitsu t-shirts.
Here's what the Scramble boys say:
The competition is simple. Santa is practising his BJJ in five pictures which will contain clues as to the identity of a famous fighter. One will be released in the BJJ Weekly newsletter (be sure to sign up so you don’t miss out on the first clue) on 6th December. The remaining four will be hidden somewhere on both the MMA Outlet website and the Scramble website on the 7th and 8th of December. You’ll have to have a root around those sites on those two days to find the hidden images. Once you’ve found the pictures and the clues, you should be able to piece it together to find out who the famous fighter is. The first person to post the correct fighter’s name on the Scramble Facebook page will win the Christmas booty! Make your guess wisely though as you’re only allowed one guess per person; multiple guesses will be void! AND you aren’t allowed to start guessing until a post on the Scramble Facebook page tells you to.
The winner will be announced on Friday 10th December! Good luck and happy hunting!
Oh and even if you don't win the three prizes on offer, you can at least console yourself with a free keyring and funky sticker whenever you purchase two or more products from the Scramble website (as seen hanging on my Christmas tree photo above).
Speaking of MMA Outlet, I'm pretty impressed with this US fightwear shop - Mike is on the email to me every few weeks with news of this and that so I finally asked, can readers of this blog get a discount? Mike said yes sure! so here it is:
MMA Outlet discount coupon code: type MEERKATSU at checkout for 5% off.
Now let's see, ooh they sell Sprawl, Vulkan, Break Point, Atama, Fuji...the list goes on omg I'm so filling up my Christmas shopping list right now!
That's not all friends, don't forget you can always get a handy 5% discount of all Tatami Fightwear products by just typing in MEERKATSU5 at checkout. And while I'm on the subject of Tatami, I see they've just produced a very slick video advert featuring my good friends David Onuma, Pippa Granger, Daniel Agard, Pedro Bessa, Greg Creel and Kevin Cox. Enjoy...
