No-gi training is on the rise in the world of jiu jitsu and the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation now sanctions official competition for this category. This major development in the sport has resulted in the majority of jiu jitsu practitioners using a rashguard for training and combat.
Rashguards are an essential form of protection from what is commonly known as “mat-burn”, or damage caused to the skin from contact with the traditional tatami mats used in jiu jitsu. As these mats feature a textured surface which renders them waterproof whilst also offering traction, friction between skin and mat can result in this type of burn. Although the soles of the feet and palms must remain uncovered during combat, the preventative measure of wearing a rashguard can protect key areas of the body such as the chest, arms and back.
Consequently, a long-lasting, hard-wearing rashguard is an essential item for anybody looking to become involved with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and at Made4Fighters we have you covered. Durability is a key consideration therefore we only stock rashguards from official, reputable brands with a history of producing outstanding products such as Grips Athletics and Scramble. Made4Fighers also caters for all sizes with rashguards ranging from size small to XXL.
