At the intersection of the new age movement and the fitness craze, yoga has found a unique place where those interested in relaxation and the serious athletes looking to take care of their bodies are equally interested in what is an exercise as much as it is an art form. Many practitioners of Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), for instance, do yoga regularly. However, is yoga good for BJJ?
So you’ve taped your hands and made sure your body is limber and warm from your MMA and BJJ stretches, but do you have the one thing that may prevent you from actual man tears today? Every man (and even woman) will know the day they realized they need a cup for MMA or Jiu-Jitsu.
You either saw someone else learn the lesson or, unfortunately, had to go through it first hand. Whilst you may get away in training without a head guard or MMA shoes – although we wouldn’t advise it – you really can’t get away without using the best jockstraps for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Mixed Martial Arts.
