Smart Technology Rashguards in Development

Smart Technology Rashguards are currently in Development

RollTec rashguard is the first ever wearable tec for grapplers. It gathers information from a motion sensor inside the rashguard.

This brilliant development is wireless and delivers the data about your session to your cellphone. It primarily tells you which grappling positions you’ve spent most time in a singular roll and long term tracking.

The app is supposed to give you suggestions on how to improve but that part seems the most problematic because, as of now, the sensor can distinguish only between: Mount, Side Control, Guard and Back control.

While the technology certainly isn’t flawless it does make one wonder: Will this type of innovation be the future of grappling? Objective estimates of dominant versus submissive positions are certainly useful for a sport that often uses the “Position over Submission” tagline.

There is a massive 50% OFF  SALE on Video Instructionals at BJJ Fanatics, which feature quality instructionals from Tom DeBlass, Craig Jones, Dean Lister, Bernardo Faria and many more….(Type in the code ‘BJJEE” and you will receive a further 10% discount on your purchases)
