WHY SHOULD I WEAR A KNEE BRACE DURING BRAZILIAN JUI JITSU?
Knee injuries are fairly common in grappling martial arts. The goal is to place your opponent in joint locks, thus your knees are highly susceptible to injury, sprains and damage to the cartilage.
Common movements that cause injury include faulty take downs or joint locks (kneebar, heelhook or toehold) due to which many Brazilian Jui Jitsu athletes suffer ACL and meniscus injuries.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality knee supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the pain symptoms and instabilities associated with Brazilian Jui Jitsu. The gentle fabric is comfortable and flexible, allowing you to perform without any restrictions to movement.
CONOR MCGREGOR WEARS GENUTRAIN P3 FOR PATELLA PAIN
A good knee brace for Jiu Jitsu includes the GenuTrain P3; an advanced brace for pain and misalignment of the kneecap. UFC champion Conor McGregor wears the GenuTrain P3 for patella protection during mixed martial arts fights and boxing events.
McGregor tore 80% of his ACL tear during his training camp and used Bauerfeind knee braces to recover from his injury. You can use the GenuTrain P3 like McGregor for pain caused by misalignment of the kneecap (patellar lateralisation), femoropatellar pain syndrome (anterior knee pain), ACL and MCL injury or pain associated with patellar tip syndrome.
