Break Apparel Ltd

Break is a clothing brand who is committed to offering Jiu Jitsu and Surfing apparel with clean designs and manufactured to an excellent standard. Break draw their inspiration from the parallels between these two disciplines which help you escape for a few hours each day, get you talking to people who you might never have had the chance to meet, and which cross communities and build friendships founded on the mutual love of the sport. The shaka symbol is synonymous with both disciplines and epitomises the Break brand and its clothing.

With a talented mix of photographers and journalists from around the world, it showcases BJJ via a range of interviews, reviews and special features. Jiu Jitsu Style Magazine intends to raise the profile of BJJ as a mainstream sport and provide interviews to show unrivalled insight into fighters’ lives. Magazine owner Callum Medcraft said: “The UKBJJA have been doing fantastic work helping Jiu Jitsu grow in the right direction here in the UK, and the talent level of our athletes is also constantly on the rise. Though our magazine focuses on the global Jiu Jitsu scene, we are based in the UK, so it’s great to support the endeavours of our home grown athletes and the UKBJJA as best we can." Callum has been training for BJJ for eight years and launched Jiu Jitsu Style Magazine over five years ago. He added: “I may not be a world class athlete, but Jiu Jitsu has become such a huge part of my life and I feel very lucky to have joined such a wonderful community”.

Physical Being

Physical Being is a company that has a whole-being approach to lifestyle and fitness and provides personal training, nutrition advice and group training. Founded by Kirsty Sulston in 2015, Physical Being is the culmination of a lifetime spent working to understand the human form and its potential for performance in a wide variety of athletic settings and lifestyle environments. With a long professional background in dance and more recent professional development in personal training and competitive Jiu Jitsu, Kirsty is uniquely placed to understand firsthand that the most aesthetic form is also the most biomechanically efficient and injury resistant and, therefore, the ideal foundation for reaching untapped levels of athleticism. Kirsty said: “I think that what they are doing for BJJ in the UK through their ranking system is great for the sport. BJJ is still developing and the steps the UKBJJA are taking are beginning to professionalise the sport and raise its profile in a wider context. I am also a great advocate of women's BJJ and so am very supportive of the UKBJJAs work to raise engagement among females”.
