Board shorts in martial arts
So-called board shorts are wider cut fight shortsthat are not tight-fitting. They are reminiscent of classic swim or surf shorts and are very similar to short sports pants. These types of fight shorts are the most common in martial arts and come in a wide variety of designs.
Most of the time they don't have any outside pockets, just an inside pocket that you can use for example for your mouthguard can use. Board shorts are often closed with Velcro and a drawstring. In recent years these board shorts have gotten shorter and narrower to make them lighter and more comfortable.
Muay thai shorts
Muay Thai shorts or "Thai boxing pants“ are classic fight shorts that originally come from Thailand, the homeland of Thai boxing. They have a classic wide, elastic waistband with a drawstring, are short-cut and often very colorful with unusual designs.
They are mainly made of light nylon or heavier satin fabric. In recent years, however, these fabrics have often been replaced by more modern materials that are lighter and more elastic. This is how a new generation of Muay Thai shorts was born, which meet the requirements of modern martial artists.
Enge fight shorts / vale tudo shorts / compression shorts
Another type of martial arts pants are special tight, skin-hugging shorts. These are similar compression shorts, are very elastic and ensure optimal freedom of movement. In the past, these shorts were mainly known from the Brazilian "Vale Tudo", which means "everything goes" in Portuguese and was a pioneer of modern MMA sports.
Tight fight shorts all but disappeared from the scene for a while, but are now more popular than ever. Slightly longer and now almost to the knee, they're a modern choice in combat pants that look stylish and move with you.
Leggings / tights / spats / compression pants
Another pair of fight shorts commonly seen in martial arts gyms are leggings. These are very similar to the compression shorts above in terms of flexibility and freedom of movement, but cover the whole leg for more warmth and knee protection as well.
Leggings (also called tights or spats) are mostly used in the colder seasons or to avoid abrasions on the knees (mat burn). You can also see them more often BJJ, No-Gi BJJ or in wrestling. This type of compression pants is also often worn in combination with or under board fight shorts.
