Submission Wrestling: What to Wear

    When you are getting ready to go into submission wrestling, the first thing you need to think about is what to wear. This can be a bit tricky, because you want to make sure that you are comfortable while still being able to move and grapple effectively. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the best clothing options for submission wrestling.

    What Is Submission Wrestling?

    Before we show you what you need to wear for submission wrestling, we should briefly go over what submission wrestling is. Submission wrestling is essentially an umbrella term for a group of grappling martial arts ranging from combat wrestling, BJJ (Brazilian jiu-jitsu - both gi and no gi), judo, luta livre and other arts that focus on grappling methods like joint locks, heel hooks, chokes and other submission holds.

    The term submission wrestling takes influence from grappling arts such as wrestling, freestyle wrestling, shoot wrestling, Greco roman wrestling, catch wrestling and other forms of sport grappling.

    This article will focus on what you need for grappling methods such as BJJ, mixed martial arts and other forms of ground fighting that includes submission holds.

    What To Wear To Submission Wrestling

    Now that you have a basic understanding of submission wrestling, let's take a look at what you should wear when competing. If you are looking for what gear you need for BJJ specifically check out this article: Gear Guide for BJJ Beginners: What You Need to Get Started

    Shoes - The first thing you need to think about is shoes. You want something that will provide good grip and traction on the mat. Wrestling shoes are generally the best option for submission wrestling, but if you don't have any wrestling shoes, you can wear a pair of running shoes instead.

    Many wrestlers will wear shoes on the mats but other styles such as judo and BJJ forbids it. If you are training for catch wrestling, Greco roman wrestling, freestyle wrestling, or shoot wrestling, you should be fine with wearing shoes. Ask your wrestling coaches if you are unsure.

    Shorts - Next up are your shorts. When submission wrestling, you need to make sure that they have good grip so they don't ride up while grappling as this will distract you and affect your performance. MMA shorts or board shorts are generally the best option for submission wrestling.

This staple submission grappling top will also help prevent skin infections caused by bacteria on the mats, so it's great if you train regularly.

    BJJ SpatsBJJ spats are a submission wrestling clothing item that you shouldn't miss. They help prevent injuries like rug burns on mats and can also keep your legs warm while submission wrestling.

    BJJ Kimono - A BJJ kimono is a submission grappling clothing item that you won't need to wear unless you're doing submission wrestling with a gi. Otherwise, it's not necessary for submission wrestling without the kimono.

    Compression Shorts - Compression shorts are a submission wrestling clothing item that you should have. They're great for grappling and even wearing under your board shorts.

    MMA Gloves - MMA gloves are submission wrestling training items that can help protect your hands from submission wrestling. They're also great for submission wrestling training, but you won't need them to compete in submission grappling tournaments.

    Grappling Gloves, Headgear, Mouth Guard

    While not essential, grappling gloves, headgear and a mouth guard can all be helpful when submission wrestling. Grappling gloves will provide extra padding for your hands and fingers, while headgear can protect against concussions during submission wrestling matches. A mouth guard also provides added protection for your teeth when submission grappling; especially if you wear braces or dentures as this protects them from breaking off in a submission hold.
