So Santa is getting ready to roll into town, and in the nick of time BJJ Weekly, Scramble, and MMA Outlet are joining forces to send you over the river and through the woods on a treasure hunt for great free gear. (That has to be a new personal record for number of bad cliches and puns jammed into a single sentence. Mini celebration.)
Gameness is working on adding a little zip to the product descriptions on their website. If you can help out, you’ll be entered to win a brand new Gameness Elite, a $239 retail value!
Eric Williams is a noted celebrity photographer based in Los Angles California. He's been shooting portraits of famous actors, musicians, and sports icons for years. There is a long tradition of fine art portraits of celebrities, but now MMA athletes are receiving the same treatment. Just one more indication that the sport has begun to become mainstream.
Our readers never quit! We had some great entries into the Gameness photo contest, and it was really tough to limit ourselves to a single winner... so we didn't!
Voting is now over for the Gameness Never Quit Moment Sponsorship Contest, and the winner with over 838 votes is Andy Lushman! Andy will be getting a full sponsorship package from Gameness, including a practice gi, a competition gi, competition entry fees, and he'll be featured in an upcoming Gameness advertisement!

My name is Andy Lushman and I first started training BJJ two years ago when I moved from Canada to Switzerland. My story tells of my discovery of BJJ and the difficulties I encountered while training abroad. Below you will find my story which, in my opinion, is full of never quit moments...
This is the first semi finalist winning entry in the Gamenss Never Quit Moment sponsorship contest. BJJ Weekly will be publishing 3-4 of these stories about fellow BJJ enthusiasts who overcame adversity to continue their training. Each published author will win a gi from Gameness, and the grand prize winner, selected with help from readers, will become a sponsored Gameness fighter.
The Gameness Never Quit Moment
We’ve all felt like quitting before. Quitting a workout early, quitting a diet, quitting a rolling session, and sometimes even quitting on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu altogether.
