I've been looking for some cheap ones but they all come to about $50. Anyone know where some cheap shorts can be bought?

www.cagewalk.com | i believe they run around 20bucks, and are definitely quality shorts. although simplistic in design, i havne't heard anything but good stuff about them. probably the cheapest quality shorts you'll find.

Unless your school has certain rules there's usually no problem with wearing whatever kind of shorts you feel comfortable in. I've worn everything from basketball shorts to different sets of board shorts to gi pants. Grapple in what you feel comfortable in/can afford!

Yeah. I have a pair of surf shorts. They are made from a fabric that doesn't tear easily so they are more durable and other shorts I've worn.

All in all, what is the big deal about grappling shorts any ways? Other than the fact of trying to look like you are a submission grappler. lol

Well maybe that "Sprawl" logo on the side makes you sprawl better?

To this day, I still fight in a pair of $8 draw string shorts I bought from Old Navy. As long as there are no, or very few pockets, they should work, provided you're not fighting pro. Pros have certain shorts they have to wear.

I like tai shorts for kickboxing, since they make it less restrictive for high kicks(to me anyways) but grappling shorts?

I never throw high kicks, so thats probably why I don't bother with kickboxing shorts. For grappling, depending on rule sets, you can sometimes grab an opponents shorts, or at least your own to defend armlocks, so I like something thats strong and thick enough to get a grip on, like khaki shorts.

Yep, nothin like grabbin yer own shorts to stop a kimura or grabbin yer own shorts to help lock in an armbar from the bottom. Muay Thai shorts aren't good for this at all because they're usually made of slick material made to slide across your leg real easy when you're throwing kicks. Not to mention they're normally so short that you can't even reach em if the guy has your arm down by your knee

for a cheaper short that has awesome quality, check into txmma.com the stuff they have is great. I have a pair of black ones and I believe they came to be 30.99 after taxes and shipping. Took around 10 days to get the item.

*edit* here is the link for Truth

I got a question, I am ordering some new shorts today.

for muay thai/BJJ should I order the longer or shorter ones?

i like the longer ones, will it make a difference?

Are they specifically for muay tai? If so then get a set of actual tai shorts.

I'd get the shorter ones. The longer they are, the more restrictive they are on kicks, and positions you'd use in BJJ. Mine are about an inch or so higher than my knee, and make sure you get ones with slits in the side too.

Get shorts like Nog and Cro Cop wear, the bycicle style. They work for both.

I realize the clash in styles with one short being good for one sport, and another short being good for another sport.

Sprawl Shorts

would those be good for BJJ? (a little generic, but sprawls known to be good quality)

I am planning on buying some twin or fairtex shorts for mauy thai.

I ask lots of nooby questions i know, but i dun want to get something, and be disapointed.

Sprawl is about the industry standard. If you get the split leg design you cant go wrong for MT and BJJ.
