Scotty, this is an awesome thread.

You guys make great products and I love your stores.

Super bummed out that the one in West Covina closed down tho!!

I do have an idea for the kids line you sell, maybe I will email you and we can work on something.


Hit me up I'll try to help!!

Emailed you earlier about a kids rashguard idea.

Serious question, since you said "ask me anything":

Is it true that the early crew involved with "On the Mat" was made up of guys from the local bisexual scene?

Ive heard that from a few different unrelated people over the years.

If true, were these guys who were also genuinely into grappling for legit reasons or was there some questionable cross-over appeal?

Krs10KO.com - 

OTM- 

I just checked out your site and you've got some great stuff!! I think i may order something. But I have a question you may or may not be able to help me with. I'm raising money for Tap Cancer Out, a nonprofit organization that raises money for cancer orgs on behalf of the BJJ and grappling community. Would you guys ever consider donating any items that I could raffle off?? If youre interested PM me, I can give you more info. Thanks!!! 

 


Krs10KO, Sorry I missed this before. I think we have donated some stuff to your cause before and yes we would be willing to send you some stuff. Please email me. scott at on the mat dot com.

DaddyRice -  If you had to start all over today, without any of your contacts/connections, how would you market your brand? Phone Post

DaddyRice, the same way Gumby and I did back in the day. Go to as many events as you can meet as many people as you can and make connections. It is all about who you know.

Best way to market your brand unless you got a ton of $$$ is just get out there and let people get their hands on it. Make the best product you can and let people use and try it. Today it is much easier then before. More events, more people doing BJJ and its much easier to get the word out. Start a pod cast, youtube channel, build a word press site. All easy and free to do.

Make sure you trademark you brand asap! Long time ago I almost lost OTM when we had a trademark issue. If you need a good trademark guy here is mine. Josh Gerben, Esq. Tell him I referred you.

I didn't see a question about making a rash guard line. Where can you get a large amount of rash guards made for a brand I'm starting ? Phone Post
