Cheap MMA Shorts – Where to Buy Them

Cheap MMA shorts can be hard to come by if you don’t know where to start looking. For a lot of retailers, cheap MMA shorts can also mean low quality MMA shorts but there are a few places where you can pick up high quality MMA training shorts at a fraction of the cost. In this article we’re rounding up the best places to buy cheap MMA shorts, showing you what to look for when choosing your next pair of fight shorts without having to sacrifice quality for cost.

Different Styles of MMA Shorts

MMA is a unique sport so you’re going to need to choose the right pair of training shorts to ensure you get the most out of your game, matching the right pair of shorts to the style of mixed martial arts you’re doing. Muay Thai, Jujitsu and Krav Maga are some common MMA disciplines, each with their own specific gear needs. Muay Thai involves a lot of high kicking leg work so a good pair of Muay Thai shorts, for example will need to have loose, wide fitting legs with an elastic waistband to ensure maximum mobility and secure comfort. The ground based wrestling style of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu means that the right pair of Jiu Jitsu grappling shorts will also need to provide a good range of movement and a comfortable fit, but needs a tighter and longer leg, and typically have drawstring and Velcro closures to keep them in place. Krav Maga pants are a different beast completely, with a lot of Krav Maga fighters opting for long, heavy duty pants. Some MMA fighters will opt for a tighter fit style of heavy duty shorts, called fight shorts which are good for high impact sports with a lot of grappling action. Other fighters might prefer a looser style of MMA board shorts which are good for hybrid style MMA fighting and popular in ultimate fighting. Tight fitting compression shorts are also a popular choice either on their own or worn under looser shorts. Girls too will have different needs in MMA shorts to the boys, with women’s MMA shorts often having a more contoured fit around the hips area and a shorter leg, where men’s shorts will typically have more room in the front, a longer waist to crutch area and a straighter and longer leg. Whatever your specific needs for your MMA fighting, there are a few basic characteristics a good pair of MMA shorts will need:

  • Flexibility – a lot of shorts are made of either four way stretch or two way stretch fabric, some with slits along the side of the legs to ensure maximum leg mobility.

  • Fast Drying – Working up a sweat, you’re going to need a pair of shorts that have good moisture control so opt for a polyester style fabric, preferably with some form of microbial property to help you stay dry and prevent chafing.

hayabusa-felxible-shorts-mma-overload-300x250

  • Secure and Comfortable Fit – Whether it’s rolling, grappling, or kicking, mixed martial arts involves a range of high impact movement so you’re going to need a pair of training shorts that will stay in place securely but still be comfortable. A good pair of fight shorts will combine a drawstring and Velcro closure, though some will also have elasticated waist bands.

  • Safety – MMA fighters should avoid shorts that have any kind of metal fastenings or loose flapping parts for their own safety and the safety of their opponents. For safety reasons, a lot of fighters also prefer shorts without external pockets.

Choose Thai boxing shorts that are comfortable and offer maximum mobility

Whether you’re having a professional fight in a stadium or your training at the gym, you’re going to want shorts that offer you the maximum range of motion. When you’re kicking and kneeing you don’t want to be restricted by your shorts! In line with this, sizing is very important. Each brand tends to have slightly different sizing, so it’s important that you look at their own sizing guide before buying. The best Muay Thai shorts will also have several other important features for comfort and mobility.

1) Slits on the legs of the shorts. This will enable you to have a greater range of motion. Be sure to check for this as not all shorts have them.

2) Smaller shorts. You may also want to go for a smaller/shorter pair of kick boxing shorts. You can see in this video of Mike Zambidis (or ‘Iron Mike’) that he’s wearing a shorter type of Muay Thai shorts than his opponent. It may be more similar to a K-1 style of shorts than the traditional Muay Thai short. It’s a great match as well, so well worth watching! I won’t tell you who wins.

 

3) Light weight material. This is generally a given as almost all Thai kickboxing shorts are made from light weight satin. However, it’s still something to be aware of.

4) Wide short legs. This will further increase your mobility so you can exercise the range of kicks and moves needed for Muay Thai.

5) Elastic waistband. Again, this is pretty standard, but good to be aware of this feature. Having an elastic waistband is going to give you more flexibility in the sizing and will ensure that it will stay in place when you’re moving. You can see that all the pictures of Muay Thai shorts above have elastic waistbands.

Make the correct decision on quality versus price when deciding on a pair of kick boxing shorts

One of the biggest decisions you will need to make when purchasing a pair of kick boxing shorts is how much to spend versus what quality you get. There are many very cheap pairs of shorts out there, with mmastuff.com even having a whole listing of shorts for 10 dollars! Many people are happy with them. However, I’ve heard many stories where people buy cheap Muay Thai shorts and they rip on the first kick, they fall apart after just a couple of washes, or the threading gets stuck on the Velcro of their gloves. These are all results of low quality craftsmanship. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for when purchasing Muay Thai boxing shorts.

Then again, there are some great sales around, so make sure you look around. MuayThaiStuff.com frequently has shorts up to 50-60% off, so you can get some very good quality shorts for cheap. The online market place for Muay Thai gear and equipment is only going to get more and more competitive, so expect to see some great prices in 2013!

Summary

So to wrap up, there are three major aspects to consider when purchasing a pair of Muay Thai shorts. 1) Look for a design that you love. There’s so many designs, colors, patterns and graphics out there that you might as well pick something that really appeals to you. Don’t forget the custom designs, too! 2) Make sure you buy shorts that have maximum mobility and comfort. Three simple things you can do to ensure optimal movement is to get shorts with lightweight (usually satin) fabric, make sure there are wide leg holes, and also ideally, look for something with a side slit, although that it not essential. Finally, make sure you check the sizing chart before you buy! It’s not fun when you buy a pair of shorts online and they don’t fit well! 3) Make sure you make the right trade-off between quality and price. There are a lot of very inexpensive or cheap Muay Thai shorts out there. However, they can be low quality, tearing or just falling apart quickly. Generally, you can go buy the rule that you get what you pay for. Though there are some great sales out there where you can get high quality Muay Thai shorts for a very low price.
