OMG what IS this thing?
Hello friends and neighbours!
So, I went out to buy a new MT short.
So, I went to the shop and asked for one.
And the shopkeeper showed me something like THIS:
A Muay Thay short, but with long legs?! (And it was pink, too.)
WTF!? Have I missed something or what?!
Disturbed, and afraid of being laughed at in class,

I think i just found my next pair of fight shorts."Boxing is the art of hitting an opponent from the furthest distance away, exposing the least amount of your body while getting into position to punch with maximum leverage and not getting hit."

It should say 'BUTCH' on the belt though instead of 'DUTCH'.

No, my question is - WHAT IS IT?
For which sport is it used? Are there really Muay Thay/Kickboxing people wearing this kind of trousers?

They look like old school Kickboxing trousers of the shiny kind. There are a few guys at my kickboxing club who still wear them.
The ones in the pic above look like a ladies pair.

:shock:Okay, thanks a lot! Now, with my five or six years that I trained KB in total, I never saw anything even remotely alike.
I thought something like "well, so those are Systema Trousers", or the like.
Now, then again, we used to wear the white trousers that went with the gi in the ASK training.

I'm sure Lebell wears that when he goes out.

They are Magic Pants.
Go ask about them in DHS, they'll be able to tell you more."Listen to Iscariot you Vicchysoise ninja-fuckers!" - kohadril

"I'll pray for you Iscariot." - Mas
"Iscariot, check your pulse and report back. We need to know if you are in fact, not alive." - Lu Tzu
"Iscariot is victorious!" - Dai Tenshi

"Iscariot, despite our obvious doctrinal differences, I salute your exquisite bastardry, and take back half of all the bad things I ever said about you." - Zendetta

they'd just get annoyed that not only were you asking about magic pants in dhs, but that you were using the term incorrectly.
as the saying goes, "you're not even wrong."
edit: i'm organizing a no-gi night for my karate class, and i have a sudden fear that someone will show up in kickboxing pants as pictured.
