Benefits of Wearing MMA Shorts
We have different types of MMA Shorts to accommodate for all disciplines from Muay Thai Shorts, MMA Compression Shorts or Vale Tudo Shorts and No-Gi Shorts. Thai Boxing Shorts are essential for training or competing, the shorts are much shorter in length so they don’t restrict the extension of a fighter which is vital as Kicks and Knee Strikes are very important tools for a Muay Thai Fighter. We have the best MMA Shorts and Vale Tudo Shorts available, acting as a second skin, moving with you and giving no restrictions. Wearing Compression Shorts will help improve your performance during your fights and training sessions by reducing your fatigue. MMA Compression Shorts will help reduce muscle soreness and fatigue during and after your workouts which enables you to train better, faster and longer without your muscles getting tired as quickly. Compression shorts also help reduce your risk for muscle strains. So if you are prone to this type of sports-related injury, compression shorts will be a great option for you to make sure these are prevented. Sore muscles after a training session can be brutal and can affect your performance if you are training the day after. As a result, these shorts are a good option to reduce your risk of delayed onset muscle soreness.

History of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) dates all the way back to the Olympics in ancient Greece and originated as hand-to-hand combat performed as a sport called Pankration. There were only two rules back in Greece which was no biting and no eye-gouging. This was a very popular sport where Greek competitors became heroes and legends. Teachings of ancient Greek Pankration spread to India thanks to Alexander the Great. A Buddhist monk travelling through India soon picked up on aspects of Pankration and brought that knowledge to China where Asian Martial Arts like Kung Fu, Judo and Karate were born. As people branched into new lands over the years, they took these arts and developed them, which soon created new Martial Arts. For example, a Judo expert travelled the world and ended up in Brazil to share his knowledge and experience which soon led to the development of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
As Martial Arts became more popular over time, so did the idea of mixed-style competitions, usually when a practitioner of one martial art challenged a practitioner of different martial arts to see who comes out on top. For instance, a Thai Boxer coming up against a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner then realizing that they need to become more adept at defending take-downs which would lead them to train with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters.
