Ringside, Traditional, Leather, Jock Strap Medium
Muay Thai, Jock StrapA jock strap, also known as a jock or athletic supporter, is a type of men's undergarment designed for use in sports.
This traditional, Thai jock strap consists of two straps that go around the waist and a strap extending from the base of the support around the buttocks (which it does not cover, unlike briefs or boxers) to attach to the waist straps.
The steel core has a padded leather layer in front, foam padded edges and a metal interior for unbeatable, complete groin protection. You tie this jock strap on thong-style, using three thick cotton straps. Or, use this metal protector in a regular cup strap for the ultimate in protection.
One aspect of Thai-style boxing that had remained the same for a long time was the jock strap. Originally, the jock strap in Thailand consisted of a triangular-shaped pillow tied to the waist, with a strap tied behind from between the legs. The pillows were red or blue color according to the boxer's corner. These pillows were used until one Thai boxer went to Malaysia and saw foreign boxers use a jock strap. He brought the idea back to Thailand, and since then a steel jock strap has replaced the triangular pillows. Now you can have one made of stainless steel, which is designed specifically for Muay Thai. The Ringside Jock strap is made in the traditional style.
About this Cup-only Protector, Jock StrapThis jock strap is a cup only protector that does not use a pouch. The straps attach directly to the cup in a one size fits all fashion. This is designed so that it can be worn over a traditional, jock strap with a pouch or a pair of briefs, but this is not necessary. This cup has no holes in it, so the scrotum can not be painfully pinched in a cup hole like with other jock straps. This style is common in kickboxing and martial arts to protect against groin attacks. We will ship a large jock strap if no request for a medium is made.
How to Wear a Jock StrapThe most common way to wear a jock strap is to put it on immediately over the skin or breifs, as the bottom layer. One can wear it under a pair of compression shorts to avoid having the leg straps show if so desired. The cup goes in front and the legs go through the leg straps. Pull the jock strap up and adjust to comfort. Some men like their penis to point directly up, others like it pointing either to the left or the right, while still others bend it forward so it points down. Having the penis pointing down in the cup is normally the most comfortable position when wearing the jock strap. Having the penis pointing down can cause problems in an erect or partially erect state however. Having the penis pointing to the side can cause hanging out the edge if it becomes erect. A lot of times the penis ends up moving and pointing to one side or the other in the jock strap while fighting; if this happens, minor readjustment may be necessary, if you are concerned about getting an erection.
Caring for Your Jock StrapIt is advised that one should always wash and dry jock straps after every use. Never use a high-fragrance detergent because in a damp and hot environment the chemicals from the fragrance can seep into open sores caused by jock itch or chafing and cause more discomfort and irritation.
Even with proper care, like any other clothing item, jock straps will wear down and need to be replaced. It is crucial to maintain sports equipment and a jock strap is no exception. This new jock strap model is made from natural materials that provide a longer lasting consistent product.
Signs that your old jock strap will need to be replaced start with a looser fit, fraying ends, holes, wear on the fabric covering or other physical defects. These problems are probably do to the primitave rubber straps used in older models. These old, jock straps can create hazards because of equipment malfunction. Your old, jock strap should be properly disposed as municipal solid waste in a
trash receptacle when you receive this one in the mail. Care should be taken that they are not reused, as mentioned above under care. Regular replacement of your jock strap is also recommended for sanitary reasons. Many sports teams reuse their jock straps only a few times, or they are single season use only then destroyed.
