A traditional folk story tells the tale of two young men who upon hearing a rooster crowing loudly at midnight took that as a sign to practice martial arts. They did this day or night, rain or shine…whenever they heard the rooster, they sparred. Over time, their dedication was rewarded and they became highly skilled warriors. These grappling tights, inspired by this story (and by the artist Meerkatsu’s Chinese birth sign) are the perfect item to wear for the dedicated nogi grappler. The 8-panel design is specifically patterned to ensure a snug fit that won’t go saggy after repeated use and the elastic waistband keeps things in place. An additional benefit noted by many users is the super friction-free effect when wearing tights during sparring. Grappling tights are also favoured by many gi players for comfort, sweat wicking and as an extra layer in colder months. See size guide for fit details, note, they are super stretchy and intended to be worn tight.
