    A rash guard? Is that a rash like a mat burn or a strawberry or like a fungus? I'm not getting no fungus.
    Both. Presumably the original meaning is mat burn, but mat burns open up entries for fungi and bacteria. And wearing long sleeves helps against infections even regardless of scratches and bruises.

    If you're dead set against skin infections, submission grappling may not be the sport for you, though.
    There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

    **** those sprawl shorts. Those things have a weird fake drawstring/fastening thing going on. I just wear a underarmour shirt and adidas soccer shorts.

    Couple things, if T-shirt, make sure it isn't too large on you, it'll have a higher chance of getting caught or ripped.
    Thong, I just heard someone tell me a while ago that this was not the best idea.

    You can get an UnderArmor knockoff long sleeve shirt/rashguard from WalMart for $10, and about the same for some board shorts (if you can find them now in the winter).

    I guess it depends on your gym/dojo. In mine, I feel out of place if I come in with a bunch of mma gear I feel out of place as most of the guys just wear old t-shirts and shorts.

    Unless you have the skillz to pay the billz, wearing MMA gear makes you look like a romo.

    I go with Sprawl shorts and their grappling top.

    Shorts are great because they dont slip off or twist up like normal shorts will. And they last forever. If you plan on doing this for a while, just get good stuff from the start.

    Their grappling top is the best thing out there though. Tshirts rip, a lot. And if you are real active on your back, you will get burns on your shoulders from tshirts. Go with the rashguard, wiill pay itself off in like a week and a half with torn and stretched shirts.
