Grappz is a finger support compression glove designed by Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and collegiate wrestler, Jonathan Kowalsky. Training over the years in a variety of sports, inevitably led to numerous finger jams and hand injuries. He realized he wasn’t alone…
From professional athletes to the average person, people commonly injure their weakest but most utilized extremities, THE FINGERS.
You have two options after sustaining these aggravating injuries: buddy tape your fingers or sit out. For Jonathan, sitting out wasn’t an option but using athletic tape was time consuming, inefficient and annoying. The tape almost always slipped off, left a sticky residue and compromised his mobility.
There was no workout glove or finger guard on the market that would achieve the goals of protection, performance and mobility; so he came up with his own solution, GRAPPZ.
His goal was overall finger protection and hand protection, before or after sustaining an injury, without inhibiting performance or slipping off.
With the help from several elite athletes in different sports, Jonathan was able to perfect the design and found Grappz also helped improve finger strength.
Olympic gold medalist and professional wrestling super star, Kurt Angle loved Grappz and it’s benefits so much, he joined our team to help protect and strengthen hands all over the world.
