BIJONARI Arnold's Booth


When I take a step back and reflect, it always amazes me how cyclical life can feel at times.

In March of 2010 I attended the Arnold’s Sports Festival to compete in my first Brazilian jiu-jitsu competition. At the time, I was 20 years old and had been training jiu-jitsu for roughly 3 to 4 months. When we found out the Arnold’s held a jiu-jitsu tournament and it was happening in our backyard my buddy and I jumped at the opportunity to sign up and test ourselves. Honestly, at this point I don’t remember much about my first matches but I can vividly remember watching a specific match with my friend where we saw our first jumping guillotine attempts from a shirtless dude in tight shorts running and jumping around all over the mat…it was one of the funniest things we saw the whole day.

Martial arts are more than just a physical means of self-defense, they also provide a platform of self-expression. For me personally, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai cemented themselves as my artistic outlets, wherein both training and competition served as new arenas to showcase my personality and my creativity, in tandem.

As we start the New Year, I figured I’d take some time to reflect and look back on the various highs and lows we’ve personally experienced throughout the year. Technically, December of 2020 marked a full calendar year for the existence of BIJONARI, beginning with the initial idea for the brand and leading up to our very first sale on November 3rd, 2020.

A Day to Remember

On Saturday, December 5th, 2020, we held our first event at Ronin Training Center to showcase Bijonari's first capsule release, The Beginning, and spend time with everyone who has supported us. To give back to our supporters, we teamed up with world-renowned Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and competitor, Vitor Oliveira. We provided a one-hour seminar open to all local practitioners in the surrounding Columbus, Ohio region and beyond.
