Rash guards are a popular item in sportswear and are used by athletes across a range of different sports, from martial arts and football to surfing and swimming. In martial arts, rash guard have several uses. Rash guards prevent chafing, sunburn, skin irritations, and provide numerous other protections. Because they are made from spandex, or polyester, or nylon, or a blend of these materials, they are also lightweight and comfortable, yet strong and durable. They can be long-sleeved or short-sleeved, and often feature UV protection as well as anti-microbial properties. Rash guards are an essential part of any athlete’s wardrobe, as they provide an extra layer of protection against the elements, while still allowing for maximum flexibility and movement.
Rash guards can prevent injuries
Rash guards are designed to protect your skin from getting scratched or bruised during training sessions. They’re made from a lightweight and quick-drying material that is both comfortable to wear and helps prevent skin irritation. They are usually tight-fitting to reduce grappling drag and feature flat-lock seams to minimize chafing. Some rash guards also offer protection from the sun’s Ultra Violation radiation, which can hurt the skin.
Rash guards can prevent infections
Rash guards also protect one from getting infections. Cuts and scratches are common injuries and, while they are not alarming on their own, having them exposed to dirty mats can cause infections. While sparring, a jacket of a Gi can become somewhat unadjusted, making the upper body open and prone to injuries and infections, which a rash guard can easily prevent.
Rash guards can improve blood circulation
A rash guard snugly fits the body, which keeps the body warm and the warmth of the body improves blood circulation. Muscle strains and tears are common in sports that involve lots of quick movements. A rash guard can help prevent these injuries by keeping the body warm and thereby, increasing the range of motion and also lessening the risk of muscle pulls. If you already have an injury, the improved blood circulation from a rash guard can help you recover faster by limiting swelling in the injured area.
Rash guards can help you practice safely
A rash guard acts like a second skin and it helps you to practice safely. It will protect the body from friction, mat burns, dirt, dust, and bacteria. A rash guard can be worn underneath a Gi, so that you feel comfortable and can practice safely. It will stay in place, even while grappling.
Rash guards are comfortable
During rigorous training sessions, it is obvious to feel hot and sweaty, but the rash guard will keep you cool and comfortable. A good quality rash guard not only absorbs sweat, but it also wicks the sweat away from your body. This allows you to focus on getting better at your martial art, rather than constantly worrying about feeling uncomfortable and sweaty.
Rash guards last a long time
A rash guard is an excellent addition to your martial arts uniform. Due to its extremely durable material, you’ll be able to use it for years to come without worry of it falling apart.
Rash guards are easy to maintain
Rash guards can be hand-washed or machine-washed in normal or cold water. Please see the washing instructions given on the label of the rash guard. Proper maintenance of the rash guard significantly improves personal hygiene and health, besides increasing the durability of the rash guard.
