Grappling spats, sometimes known as compression leggings, are a common sight amongst grapplers, whether it's in BJJ, MMA or wrestling. Worn alone as a pair of bottoms or underneath MMA shorts or gi pants, grappling spats offer comfort when grappling and prevent mat burns. Like rash guards, they're also brilliant for avoiding skin-on-skin contact with training partners which can help reduce the spread of bacterial diseases such as ringworm and staph infection. Because grappling spats are worn tight to the skin, they can wick moisture away from your body to help keep you cool and their stretchy fabric allows uninhibited movement when grappling.
Grappling spats are available in a variety of designs, from plain to illustrated prints. Some companies even produce custom grappling spats for clubs and individual athletes. Most designs are printed using sublimation which ensures the design won't crack or fade when wearing or washing your grappling leggings.
