    the only reason i have any input here is that i was recently talking about this topic with a woman i train with. she was trying to buy some fight wear for the NAGA tournament that just happened.

    she ended up getting underarmour shirts (cause they are actually cut for a woman) and some knee length spandex shorts.

    i would recommend the vollyball shorts, since bike shorts have padding in the crotch.

    you can find surfer rash guards in women's cuts really easily. these guys are great and cheap http://shop.store.yahoo.com/beachtra...uardsgals.html

    some people don't like the mock-turtleneck necks on the surfer rash guards, so they go for the underarmour shirts.

    Sweet deal, ML.

    My judogi works because it's cut entirely differently, and I can hitch it up to my armpits and then tie it and roll it, and it ends up sitting somewhere near my waist. Gis are a far cry from ideally fitted no-gi wear.

    The shorts I tried on, when the waist was the proper size to stay up, kept riding up my bum, and the whole manner just kept creeping UP. When I got the next size up, they wouldn't stay up, and I don't think that grappling in something that sits even lower than my jeans will work very well.
    You're just JEALOUS!

    I also have an issue with lots of padding, since my new Koral gi fits TIGHT. Martial arts gear made for men is usually over-generous in the wrong way in the crotch/butt area.

    Trust me...it's still not generous enough.

    I can see how it could get annoying for girls though, but if they're not inside of the short, can't you cut them out like shoulder pads? Or would that ruin the fit of the short?

    My sister seems to like the Underarmour shirts, but she wears gi pants for grappling. The board or volleyball shorts mentioned before are probably your best bet.

    If you don't want padding, don't buy BIKE SHORTS.

    Honestly I've never had any padding in any of my bjj stuff, so I guess I have no idea what wierd companies you guys are buying stuff from.

    If you wear bike shorts to a grappling class you might as well just register as a sex offender.
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog
