I don’t know much about the Thaisman muay thai brand so I really can’t say much about what I think about their ankle supports or other products. I’d suggest buying a different pair but if you like and know Thaisman then go for it!
Tips For Buying The Best Muay Thai Ankle Supports
There are a handful of differences between types of ankle supports, wraps, guards and braces you should consider before buying yourself a pair;
First, ankle braces made by Shock Doctor and McDavid aren’t made to look cool, they are made to help ensure ultimate protection and stabilization for your ankles during your muay thai training. Although some of them are more expensive, they definitely offer better protection from ankle injuries
Second, muay thai ankle wraps made from TUFF, Twins Special, Kombat, Venum and Bad Boy have unique designs and slip on and off very easily but don’t offer as much protection as the higher end, more expensive ankle guards.
Third, if you plan on using your muay thai ankle supports every time you train then you might want to consider buying more than one pair. Not only will this help keep your gear clean, but you’ll be able to match whatever muay thai shorts you happen to be wearing that training session!
Should Muay Thai Ankle Supports, Wraps and Braces
Be Used In Every Muay Thai Class?
It all depends on your situation. You should/could where muay thai ankle guards every tim you train If you;
- Have a lingering ankle injury
- Find yourself slipping on the mat occasionally
- Want to take some of the sting away from landing a kick with your foot
- Like the way they look
Now if you only have one pair of ankle supports and wear them multiple times a week, you should consider getting a couple pairs so they don’t stink up the training floor. Plus if you’re like me, you’ll want to be matching and chances are not all your muay thai ankle wraps will match your muay thai shorts!
