ORIGIN Introduces FightSkinsâ„¢< Back to Posts
This may be the hottest product to hit the bjj market in the past 5 years. I thought about this product at the 2009 worlds. I was in between matches and my body cooled. The wet gi hit my skin and my muscles started to weaken. I thought "man I wish I had a rash guard", and then it hit me...
FightSkins™ act like a rash guard while keeping competitors and traditionalists fighting and competing at the highest level. Anytime you compress a muscle you increase blood flow which keeps your muscles working harder and longer. FightSkins™ don't just keep your muscles firing, but act as a barrier between your gi top and your skin. This keeps not only your arms and elbows from chaffing but also creates a frictionless barrier so your gi does not bind in tight situations. FightSkins™ keeps the mat grime off your arms while wicking moisture away from your body. One of the worst feelings at large competitions is the fact that in between matches you have to sit and wait. Your body cools and your sweat soaked gi comes in contact with your arms, cooling and stiffening your muscles. The cuffs have a rubberized insert that keep them on your arms and are guaranteed to stay in place. FightSkins™ will revolutionize your ability to roll longer and harder.
Traditionalists don't like to wear rash guards, they prefer a shirtless approach. FightSkins™ are great for those traditionalists who want the benefits of compression without covering their whole torso. There is only one original FightSkin™ brand and that's ORIGIN. Pick up a pair today!
