No More Jiu Jitsu Mat Burns  -  Rash Guards

Importance of Jiu Jitsu Rash Guards

Training in brazilian jiu jitsu often times is very intense, and not having the proper apparel can make all the difference in how your health will result in the long term.

One of the most common and prevalent types of injuries in jiu jitsu and submission grappling is known as a mat burn, which is similar to a carpet burn, when a part of your body, usually the top of the feet, legs, or upper-body rubs the mat during a transition resulting in the burning sensation and marks on the dermis (skin). Due to that fact, one of the most important items of clothing a person can obtain while training in any type of jiu jitsu is what is known as a rash guard. A rash guard can protect an individual from these mat burns, due to the material of the clothing. Instead of rubbing your skin against the mat, which not only hurts, but can contain bacteria and other forms of harmful substances, your rash guard will help you slide and transition without harm.

Utilizing gi jiu jitsu, it might not be as common due to the fact the gi garment does protect from mat burn, but there's also nogi jiu jitsu whereby the practitioner is usually not as protected, this can happen. With and without the gi, a rash guard still remains one of the best way of protecting oneself from mat burns, which can be very harmful and hurtful.

In fact, one of the most common injuries that occurs for a new coming when they begin brazilian jiu jitsu is mat burns while drilling and attempting take downs like the single and double leg. This is due to the fact that most individuals are initially unaware of how to transition their body and their feet without rubbing it across the mat. With proper time, training, and technique, this phenomenon will disappear, but it still hurts. You might ask, what does feet have to do with rash guards? Those same injuries are similar to those that would occur on your upper-body without a rash guard, and if anyone has ever experienced a mat burn, it can become severe and be threatening if not treated properly.

There are different styles of rash guards that are commonly used in jiu jitsu, but its a common recommendation to utilize the full sleeve rash guard due to the fact there is more protection. The sleeveless rash guards are fine as well but they do not protect your arms, so if your partner and you happen to do some transition which forces your arms across the mat, you can still experience the mat burn.

The internet is a great haven for searching different rash guards that are available to you and deciphering which style, color, fit, and design will suit you best. There are different jiu jitsu apparel websites which you can navigate that share their reviews and also display rash guards that you will find valuable to review.

I hope that you found this article useful in explaining the importance of rash guards in jiu jitsu and also now have an avenue of exploring which is best for you!
