A Low Blow Should Never Be a Winning Blow
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a relatively new sport that was inspired by Brazilian and Japanese wrestling styles where there were few restrictions. The first competitions in the US took place in the 80’s but they were soon banned as they were deemed too brutal. A decade later, the Ultimate Fighting Championship took place and it shone a new light onto the sport. It quickly gained international attention and many enthusiasts were eager to be a part of it.
The early incarnations of MMA didn’t feature a lot of rules, something that had to be changed to prevent it from being banned in some states. Mixed Martial Arts associations agreed on a set of rules to unify the sport and make it even more popular. As the name suggests, the sport combines techniques from traditional disciplines such as boxing, taekwondo, judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This allows fighters to benefit from different styles and adapt and integrate them into their own.
Nutshellz is the Best, Most Comfortable Athletic Cup Available for MMA Players
Fighters go through intensive training regimes that include cardiovascular conditioning as well as strength and flexibility training. This type of physical activity makes it an excellent sport not just for competitive fighters but also for enthusiasts of all ages. Although the rules that have been set into place are there to keep fighters safe, accidents can happen.
Actions like pulling hair, biting and attacking the groin area are penalized but that doesn’t mean that fighters shouldn’t be prepared for everything. Unfortunately, sometimes rules are broken and so are the cups that should protect fighters. A kick to the groin will not only result in a fighter squirming in pain, it can also lead to some serious injuries. A man’s most valuable assets are also his most sensitive ones. The area is packed with nerves that are not protected by bones or muscle mass. A blow by someone that has been trained in a combination of martial arts could take you to the OR if the MMA cup is not sturdy enough.
No man wants his groin protector to fail him during a fight and that is why Nutshellz® was created. This innovative high-end cup was designed by Jeremiah Raber, an MMA fighter who witnessed the horrible effects of a strike to the testicles. Kevlar® and carbon fiber make Nutshellz® the strongest and most comfortable MMA cup you will ever find. Don’t walk away wincing in pain, walk away a winner.
Playing sports can be tough at the best of times, but a stray ball, bat or elbow can take down even the strongest player and force them to sit on the sidelines.
With the tremendous speed and forces in sports, a broken plastic cup or being hit without protection, life-long injuries are possible
