    Honestly, Thai Shorts never looked good. Or well I think they look like **** anyways. (Although I could wear theese for laughs: http://www.muaythaistuff.com/product...t_ID=RAJ-RTB85 ).

    I've tried ankle supports, they do trick me not to put my heels down but I guess that's more my mind than anything else. They do give some support but I just can't find a reason to wear them (well maybe to aviod getting scratched by one of the straps of my shin-guards. I'm a *****, I know ;P).

    At my club they make you wear a pair of BRIGHT YELLOW Muay Thai shorts, until you become a fighter.

    In the spirit of Ronin...If you have to wear her until your black belt, I don't see any reason to ever advance.

    I've always been a bit afraid of relying on support, although recently reinjuring my knees has made me consider it. Perhaps I'll get some sort of support to help me ease back into things and then remove it until I attempt competition again.

    the only guy i can think of at our club who is a "poser" in the fashion sense is a guy who has hot pink gloves, shinguards and headgear (distracting as ****) and tassles on his shorts. uses mozart as his ring entrance music. he is also one of the best amateur fighters in NZ and has -the- hottest girlfriend so he must be doing something right

    I like ankle wraps because they keep my feet warm...serious...I can't stand my feet being cold.

    Only if the person who wears them never exercises his ankles without them. If a person jogs/runs/skips and/or does weight lift without any form of braces or wraps on a regular basis, he/she should never worry about becoming weaker for wearing them for certain physical activities... IMO.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
