Once again we are looking forward to sponsoring Polaris 4 with their upcoming show on the 29th October 2016. This will be held at the Lighthouse in Poole, Dorset, UK and will feature some of the best grapplers in the world competing in a supermatch format.
The first announced match is between the feared ‘Ashikan Judan’ Masakazu Imanari and Eddie Bravo’s first black belt; Denny Prokopos. This is sure to be an exciting match and we can’t wait to see some of the rest of the lineup planned.
You can find out more about Polaris by following them on Facebook, Instagram and watch some of the previous events on YouTube.
We’re looking forward to getting these bad boys in stock very shortly.
The black standard issue is identical to the white standard issue with the same patch pack. Depending on how popular it is we may make different colourways in the future! IBJJF legal dependant on where the patches are placed.
The navy athlete 2 is made to the same specification as the other athlete’s and is a lightweight but durable gi ideal for competing in, and it’s IBJJF legal!
Scrambler and Roger Gracie blackbelt; Oli Geddes has just released his Footlock mastery instructional.
As well as being a prolific competitor with over 600 tournament matches, Oli is one of the best instructors we know.
This instructional is based strictly on IBJJF legal techniques from white belt and above. For beginners, it’s a very good, detailed look at an often neglected submission technique. More advanced players will enjoy the positions Oli shows – including the 50/50, outside hook ankle lock and the overhook x-guard.
You may remember we shared a story about Scrambler and USMC Veteran Robert ‘Cozmo’ Consulmagno and how training BJJ has helped him to manage his PTSD. We were excited to see the US Deptartment of Veterans Affairs share his story the other day as well as short video.
The story of how we came to stock the Rad Roller range is a simple one.
In my daily life I am constantly battling sore muscles, either from jiu jitsu or from using the computer all day.
I had seen a post from Sally Arsenault on Facebook mentioning her review of the Rad Muscle Flushing Kit, which is a combination of the Rad Helix and Rad Rod.
I bought it, had it sent from the US to the UK, and started using it. It was literally the best tool I’ve ever used for this kind of thing. The Rad Rod is perfect for stripping away the points of tension not only in my muscles but also in the parts where the tendons and ligaments attach to the bone, which can get very sore for me. The Rad Helix was like a foam roller on steroids, able to get much deeper into my back than my regular foam roller.
I took the kit to the dojo, using it to roll out after class. Everyone wanted a go, and the universal response was that they were amazing bits of kit.
A few emails later, and we at Scramble can now proudly call ourselves stockists of Rad Rollers.
By putting more than one Rad Roller item in your cart, you’ll automatically unlock 10% off the total of your order.

As a grappler, and someone who spends a lot of time at my Stationary Computing Station / Matrix Connector Device (also known as a desk), I deal with a pretty good amount of aches and pains.
I’m always on the hunt for newer and better tools to help cope with sore muscles and aching joints.
My quest led me to the Rad Roller. I bought the muscle flushing kit direct from the USA, and once shipping and import taxes were factored in, it ended up costing quite a bit.
But what a revelation! The Helix roller is literally the best version of a foam roller I have ever used, and the Rad Rod strips muscles free of tension incredibly effectively. It’s a daily routine for me now. It helps me cope with RSI from using computers all day, as I am able to strip my forearms and the tendons around the elbow.
I took the kit to the gym and everyone who has tried it, has loved it.
With that in mind, I approached Rad Roller direct, and we are now proud to announce that Scramble (UK / Europe store) will be stocking the Rad Roller range within the next couple of weeks.
