    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How much pussification is acceptable in grappling?

    So, where do you draw the line? Wrestling shoes? Wrestling shoes+knee pads? Shoes, pads and rashguard? All that plus headgear? Elbow pads?

    And yes, I started this thread here on purpose.

    I wear knee pads since I twisted my knee and made it painful.

    I wear a mouthguard since I got kneed in the face and chipped a tooth.

    I wear a rashguard because the Japanese are afraid of my sweaty chest hair rubbing in their faces.

    It's not pussification, it's self preservation!

    Macho macho man!

    I just wear kneebraces so my lower legs don't fall off in mid-grapple.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    If I can kill or put someone in a wheelchair for the rest of their life. You should not spar it seriously.

    In Judo, I just had my gi and my own unnerving clumsiness.

    I should have had knee-pads, a neck-brace, disinfectant and a firearm.
