Minor Updates
  • Stripe Updates - Updated Stripe Library and the related references had to updated.
  • (Pro Subscribers Only) Updated "My Subscription" page with several clean up / minor improvements.

Thanks for your continued support. As always if you notice an issue with the web app, please contact me and I'll get it taken care of!


Grapple.Ninja Pro Now Available

I've been working on rolling out Grapple.Ninja Pro subscriptions for the better part of the summer. It's quite a bit of work for a 1 man dev team, but I'm happy to announce the launch of Grapple.Ninja Pro subscriptions backed and powered by Stripe! 

I love writing code, especially when it's for something I'm passionate about, but  I firmly believe that a project must be sustainable to be successful.  The good news is with enough support through Pro subscriptions I will be able to dedicate more time to develop, maintain and support the web application. I am committed to continuous improvement of Grapple.Ninja just like I am committed to getting better at jiu-jitsu every single day. Likewise, if you commit to a Grapple.Ninja Pro subscription you are taking the first step through a doorway to accelerated growth. Start tracking your own training data and begin taking ownership of your own jiu-jitsu game! You can't always rely on coaches or teammates to figure out your weaknesses in your game, sometimes you need to be pro-active in your training to progress to the next level. 

Grapple.Ninja Pro Features and Benefits

Log as many of your training sessions as need! I want to encourage people to start tracking their jiu-jitsu. Unlimited training logs for everyone! Everyone gets a training log! You get a training log, you get a training log.....
