    I was just wondering, how do you girls find sponsors? Whick kind of companies do you approach, and how do you “sell yourself” to them?

    I train BJJ/SW, and live in Copenhagen, Denmark, and I have managed to get a webshop selling supplements to sponsor me with their products, but I need to find a sponsor to cover my transportation costs. I’ve been travelling a lot to BJJ/SW competitions in other countries (Denmark isn’t very big!), but it costs money. My aim is to find some money to be able to go to Mundials in LA this year.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    You may try contacting some of the fightwear/gear lines and asking them for cash sponsorship in exchange for wearing their logo at your competitions. You can approach just about any major business or small companies as well and ask, it’s good advertising for them. You may not get a lot of cash if your competitions aren’t televised but every little bit helps I guess.

    I’m fighting out of a non-profit club running only on people’s good will and spare time. It’s nothing to do with the quality of the club, but here in Denmark most sports activities and clubs have traditionally always been run on a non-profit basis, which is a shame, because there are some people who deserve to be able to earn a little cash, but it’s just hard to make that happen.

    Basically what I’m saying is – I’m self-managed 😉
