Guide to buying a rash guard

Oct 22nd, 2010 by Budo Jake
So you’re training jiu-jitsu, wrestling, or MMA.
One of the things you’ll need is a rash guard.

Why can’t I just wear a t-shirt?

You can, but it’s not as practical. For one, cotton t-shirts get heavy as they soak up the sweat. Polyester based rashguards breathe and stay light weight.
Secondly, t-shirts can tear or get stretched out much easier than a rashguard.
Finally, t-shirts are annoying for your training partners as their hands and feet can get caught as the shirt dangles in front of them.

Should I get a long sleeve or a short sleeve rash guard?

That’s a matter of personal preference, however there are a couple factors to consider. For hygiene reasosns, a long sleeve might be preferred. Long sleeves mean less skin to skin contact with your partner and the mat which can both transmit staph or ringworm which you don’t want. Secondly, some people say that long sleeves can make it easier to slide their arms in for chokes.

What brand should I buy?

Again, that’s a matter of personal preference. Our top selling brand is Nogi Industries followed by Manto, Hayabusa, and Kaizen.

What does sublimation mean?

There are 2 different ways of putting artwork on rash guards. One is called heat transfer. This works like an iron on. These are the cheaper option but unfortunately, over time the logos crack and can wear off. The dryer is especially hard on transfers.
The preferred method of applying artwork is called “sublimation”. This way the artwork becomes part of the rash guard. With sublimation there will never be any cracking, peeling or fading. The downside is that the price is higher than the standard “heat transfer” rashguards.
Sublimated rash guards are made by Nogi Industries, Rupture, Hayabusa, and Manto.

I have a belly and rash guards feel too tight for me.

This is a common problem for guys with a little extra girth in the mid-section. You guys will want to check out the “loose fit” rash guards. These are made by Nogi Industries and Sprawl.

Andre Galvao – Drill to Win

Aug 10th, 2010 by Budo Dave

Anyone who’s been watching the BJJ scene for any length of time has probably already heard of Andre Galvao.

Well the champ is back, this time with 290 pages of intense BJJ drill work designed to hypercharge your game. Galvao’s never been one to pull punches, gladly demonstrating competition-level techniques that he has used to secure his own championships, so if you’re expecting just another pictorial covering the vanilla arm-bar (which, coincidentally, sounds delicious), then expect again!
