What do you wear for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Board shorts and a t-shirt or a surf rash guard will usually be ok. However, if you decide that BJJ is something you want to do and you decide to keep training then you will need to buy a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi. It’s important not to try and avoid wearing anything with pockets, belt loops or baggy fabrics.
Can you wear leggings to Jiu-Jitsu?
I highly recommend legging type work out pants and either a long sleeve workout shirt that won’t ride up your body or short sleeve works too. Once you feel more comfortable in BJJ feel free to join that club but for your first few classes legging style workout pants and a ride up free t-shirt is the way to go!
