Clinch Gear Inks Partnership Deal with Grappling-X!

Santee, CA (May 8, 2015) - Clinch Gear today announced it has entered into a new sponsorship deal with Grappling-X, which allows for both companies to better serve the submission wrestling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu communities.
The partnership deal was made official May 4, 2015.
According to Greg Brady, COO of Clinch Gear, who made the announcement, Clinch Gear was very excited to have partnered with Grappling-X, the leading submission grappling promotion on the West Coast, which deserves to be commended for its sense of commitment to the sport of grappling and its community.
“Unlike most martial arts circuits, Grappling-X has unflinchingly embraced the philosophy of continuous improvement, and their strong commitment to its customers,” noted Greg, who believes their coming together will bring more resources and awareness to local grappling tournaments, and all the positive benefits they bring to their communities.
While many people use the word 'clinch' in association with wrestling or mixed martial arts, Greg believes its most common use is to describe the act of achieving your goals, simply to clinch a match, a title, a belt or a championship.
‘Clinch Gear is a great partner and this agreement exemplifies their dedication to helping athletes achieve their goals by providing them with the best training apparel and gear in the world. There is no doubt, Clinch Gear is committed to the growth and development of the grappling community," said, Grappling-X’s founder, Cory Cass. Clinch Gear is known for its product innovations, which include the Double-Grip closure system featured in the brand's revolutionary training shorts.
Greg also noted that it wasn’t just MMA athletes and wrestlers who have discovered the benefits of using high intensity training and Clinch Gear apparel as their fitness foundation, but other active professionals, among them adventure racers, military combatants, firefighters, police officers, and even weekend warriors.

“These athletes have also discovered that there is one brand dedicated to creating products to help them clinch their goals… and that brand is Clinch Gear,” boasted Greg.


Founded in 2003, Clinch Gear began with a mission to create the best training shorts in the world - shorts that could stand up to the incredible demands of high-intensity sports like MMA and wrestling. Based on the overwhelmingly positive reaction we received to our shorts, we decided to expand the line to include tech tops, rash guards, compression shorts, and gear. Since then, Clinch Gear has become recognized as the brand that designs the best products for athletes who incorporate high-intensity training into their workouts.
