Caring your nails is part of your personal care but also part of safety in combat sports
Everyone knows and you know that in the gym you must have short fingernails and feet, you are not a cat but someone forgets that it is important to avoid scratching or accidentally injuring your training partner in the eyes.
Now I’m sure you know, but what does short nail mean?.
To prevent you from interpreting this statement look at this pattern.
You don’t need long nails in the gym
Now as you can see from the image your nails must remain ONLY the red line.
This is very important to prevent you from accidentally injuring your partner while fighting and exercising.
Since you usually fight barefoot you have to do the same thing with your toes and this rule is also to be used in the striking where if it is true that the hands are with the gloves, the feet are often uncovered, and it is a check that personally should be emphasized in the regulations and verified before the matches to avoid potential accidents.
If you then practice how combat sports the M.M.A. and the fight then the fingers of the hands come out of the gloves and the feet free, and in the fight on the ground as the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or grappling hands and feet are with exposed fingers, without protection.
Now look at your hands and feet and if necessary give a file to your nails.
Lima lima lima ! Do not keep your nails long in the gym.
