    Do you train with shoes/ footwear?

    First and foremost, I have to say that I hope this thread belongs here. If not then my apologies, I hope someone can move it to wear it belongs, thnx!


    Just wanted to know if people train with MA shoes or any type of footwear on. Why or why not? Does it make a difference to you? Please note your style of MA as well.


    I'm on and off depending on where I am or how I feel. I usually do at my TKD dojang because the mats are gross and dirty, but we're not allowed to wear them during testing time or board breaking. If I don't wear shoes I most likely want the impact against my feet or shins.

    IMO, I prefer not to wear them because I feel looser, even though my shoes are VERY light.

    I like to maintain realism as much as possible, so I always wear shoes when I train.

    I also wear my street clothes too, because you aren't gonna wear a gi/rashguard on the street.

    I also show up to training with a few friends, because realistically, I'm never gonna just be walking around downtown, I'll have some friends with me.

    And I show up to training at least a little bit drunk, because lets face it folks.


    I'm not well liked for some reason.

    I like to wear shoes when I train because it gives you a few more options. I'm a big fan of Savate kicks like coup pied bas and fouette and those only really work with shoes on. I've also noticed that on days when I'm kicking without shoes I'm a little faster and they have a little more snap. So the extra weight may provide some training benefit as well. Your mileage may vary

    I dont care about shoes or not, as I will slip over regardless as the class fat bloke sweats so much he leaves puddles on the mat which made me nearly do the splits last night when I slipped on one of his sweat pools. When I rolled with him later it was drippin in my face like a fucking waterfall, fat bastard!

    Last time I didn't wear shoes I almost broke one of my toes.

    Asics are awesome.

    I wish! It's winter here in New Zealand and it'd be damn nice if they'd at least let us wear socks at Jiu Jitsu. It's something I've been meaning to pitch to the instructor, but I don't want to look like an idiot. My best bet is to find a suggestable noob and get him to ask on my behalf.

    As a wrestler, shoes (Of the wrestling variety) are a prerequisite to training. Although, I have seen one or two guest wrestlers train in socks for a day; that's not enviable.
