Ho ho ho! When November rolls around, you know it’s time to dig out those festive jumpers.
What was once an awkward past-time forced upon you by a well-meaning grandmother has since evolved into an annual celebration of Christmas cringe. From strolling through town to working in offices and shops across the globe, people don their silliest and funniest Christmas sweaters to celebrate the season, and in the grappling world it’s no different!
Combine your two passions and share your love of yuletide celebrations with a BJJ Christmas jumper! It’s perfect for hitting the streets with or showing off at the office Christmas party. Or if you’re feeling full of Xmas cheer, why not indulge in a Christmas BJJ rashguard to wear on the mats to display your pride for the holidays whilst mother’s milking your opponent.
Below are some of the best BJJ Christmas jumpers and rashguards of 2022.
