An Insight Into MMA Clothing For Beginners



As possibly the fastest growing sport in the world, MMA is now beginning to challenge boxing as the most popular fight sport.  Pay per view figures for MMA in the USA has already surpassed those of boxing and the sport is gaining more strength in Europe, Asia and Southern America.  In addition to watching MMA for enjoyment, many are taking it up as a pastime.  However, if you are a beginner, getting involved in the sport can initially prove a little daunting.  Here we try to remove some of the uncertainty with a quick look at the MMA clothing that you will need.  

Quality fight shorts

When you first join an MMA gym or class it is unlikely that you will do any sparring in the first few sessions.  Therefore you can probably get away with using some other kind of sport shorts for the first few sessions.  However, once you do begin physical training with a partner you will require some proper MMA shorts that can withstand the pulling and friction that they will come up against.  MMA clothing manufacturers manage this durability by using materials that are stretchable and also incorporate double stitching at the seams for extra strength. 

Protecting yourself

Although strikes to the groin area are no longer permitted in MMA, there is always a chance that an accidental low blow could cause some serious discomfort.  To protect against such an injury you are able to wear compression style shorts that come complete with a protective cup.  These fit tightly to the body and are worn under your fight shorts.  Alternatively you can wear a groin guard, which are pretty much jockstraps with a protective cup sown in. 

Considering a rash guard

A rash guard is a top made from synthetic materials that protects your upper half from rashes that can often occur when undertaking MMA.  These rashes are caused by friction with your opponent and the floor during grappling moves.  Whilst you aren’t going to be able to wear a rash guard if you ever progress to having an actual fight; they are a handy piece of MMA clothing for when you are training.
