BJJ Gi?

Postby UFCfan34 » Fri Sep 05, 2008 10:36 pm

Hey guys I just had my first BJJ class and it was awesome but short, Im looking forwards towards the next class. Im thinking about getting a Gi but also wondering what your suppose to wear under the Gi...Do people usually wear a t-shirt or shorts, or should I get some board shorts and maybe some rash guards or under amour. Thanks

I usually have regular underwear and compression shorts on under my gi pants. I wear a rash guard under my top.
Not to cross train cripples the martial arts, without it you can become a mechanic, but never an artist.

Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.

Well compression shorts separate the groin and hamstring muscles. They also provide extra warmth to the muscles which make the muscles less prone to strains/pulls.

They also help prevent chafing and rashes.
