Hey there!


I'm Jeffrey Andersen, and I've been on a martial arts journey since childhood, starting with disciplines like Taekwondo and karate then shifting to Jiu Jitsu and MMA. However, in 2011, my path took a significant detour during Jiu Jitsu training. A stubborn staph infection forced me to step away for a decade, all while navigating life's ups and downs.


Reflecting on this break, I noticed the absence of specialized products for combat athletes. Figures like Joe Rogan emphasized hygiene in combat sports online and this got me to thinking. In 2022, resuming my training, I founded Grapple Guard, a soap company tailored for grapplers.


As a committed father, Grapple Guard is not just about martial arts, it's part

of my journey as a dad, setting a positive example. With a strong work ethic,

I aim to provide combat athletes with the finest body wash, drawing from

my experiences, to positively impact their well-being globally.

The Grapple Guard Difference

At Grapple Guard, our enthusiasm for combat sports and the relentless devotion of grappling athletes drives us. As a company rooted in this community, we understand the value of sustaining ideal cleanliness and staying healthy amidst the vigorous demands of training and competition. That is why we joyfully offer an antimicrobial and anti-fungal body wash crafted to satisfy the exclusive needs of grapplers. What really sets us apart from the competition is our real love for combat sports. We live and breathe this lifestyle, and our product demonstrates that. We merge our know-how in hygiene and combat sports to create a victorious formula that not only helps fight bacteria and fungi but also nourishes and shields the skin. 

Why All Natural?

We are committed to using all-natural ingredients for several reasons. Firstly, natural ingredients are inherently gentle and nourishing for the skin. They are less likely to cause irritation or adverse reactions, making them suitable for people with sensitive skin. Additionally, natural ingredients often possess inherent therapeutic properties that can enhance the effectiveness of a product. For instance, plant extracts and essential oils offer numerous skin benefits, such as hydration, antioxidant protection, and soothing properties. Furthermore, using all-natural ingredients aligns with Grapple Guard's dedication to sustainability and environmental responsibility. By avoiding synthetic chemicals and harsh additives, Grapple Guard reduces its ecological footprint and minimizes potential harm to ecosystems.

No Harmful Ingredients

At Grapple Guard, the well-being of our customers is at the forefront of everything we do. That's why our body wash is meticulously formulated without any harmful ingredients. We firmly believe that the key to achieving optimal hygiene shouldn't come at the cost of compromising your health. Our dedication to using only safe and non-toxic ingredients ensures that our body wash not only helps to combat bacteria and fungi but also nurtures and cares for your skin. We prioritize transparency in our product development, thoroughly researching and selecting ingredients that are gentle, hypoallergenic, and environmentally friendly. With Grapple Guard, you can trust that our body wash provides the highest level of cleanliness without any harmful additives, allowing you to focus on what matters most: your performance and well-being.

About Grapple Guard

We love grappling!


Jiu Jitsu, BJJ, Judo, Gi, no Gi, MMA, catch wrestling, etc. We love it all. We also love to be able to train as often as possible and we don’t want to lose time on the mat.


Most seasoned practitioners know all too well that fungal infection is a concern when practicing grappling sports because the close contact with your training partners and the matt that occurs during training can increase the risk of spreading bacteria.


Infections can cause a range of symptoms, from minor skin infections such as boils and impetigo to more serious infections such as blood poisoning and pneumonia. In some cases, staph infections can become severe and even life-threatening.


This is why we decided to make “Grapple Guard Body Wash”.


By using Grapple Guard Body Wash after each training session, practitioners can help protect against staph infections and other skin irritations. Additionally, the invigorating scent of tea tree and rosemary oil will leave the skin feeling refreshed and clean.


Grapple Guard Body Wash is made with all-natural ingredients and is free from harsh chemicals, parabens, and artificial fragrances, making it safe for daily use. It's also vegan, cruelty-free, and made with sustainable ingredients.
