Wrestling in itself is one tough sport which can really wear you down. Most BJJ classes start on the knees or sitting down, but if you go to a true wrestling class you start on the feet a lot. The grinding aspect of wrestling is one the reasons its so great for MMA training. However if you do a few good wrestling sessions every week you are going to be susceptible to a lot of injuries. I always recommend getting training gear to accommodate each aspect if your training. For wrestling I always recommend ear, groin, and feet protection. Not everyone is a fan of wrestling headgear or ear guards but they can really help keep your ears in good shape. Of course you should always wear a cup when doing any kind of martial arts. A lot of people skip over wrestling shoes for training but I really recommend it if you do a lot of wrestling or you are new. You can really help keep your toes and ankles safe while working strictly on your wrestling. You don’t have to break the bank to get the best wrestling shoes. If you practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu you can definitely benefit from wrestling shoes during some drills and exercises. If you practice Sambo you may already know all about the benefits of wrestling shoes.
