          That's why boxers are best, keeps "the package" cool.

            There is a reason for "it" to be outside... "It" needs to cool down, people... Why the heck would you go against God's design and wrap it tightly with layers and layers of fabric?

                No, they're just a lot easier to wash than a hakama.

                I think it's a pretty safe bet that a straight guy and leather underwear are a pretty rare combination.

                  What ever happened to breifs, yo? Nothing grants the perfect balance of freedom and security than a well-fit pair of undies (slightly baggy and roomy). I'm not talking about tighty-whities, though. If you wear tight briefs, that's gotta suck.

                    what do most ladies wear under their hakama? LOL. no it's a serious question. I'm a guy, and tried to wear running/compression shorts and found it relatively hot and constricting )especially in Sonkyu.

                    I doubt it, but have any of you ladies gone "comando?"
                    Well in response of that question, just my nickers, but it never bothers me wearing just that

                      As to the why... I've heard that it's pretty painful to have "the boys" bounce against your thigh when you fumikomi. Also protects from the dreaded "scro-te." Horror stories abound regarding unintentional hits to the kibbles and bits.

                      In the "for commando" camp at my dojo... I think they just do it to get out of doing the flutter kicks and leg raises our sensei makes us do.

                        runsyi, with your scro-te concept I had a really good laugh... It remainds me a pic that I saw and the many times I have to apologize because I tried to do a Doh hit and insted of that I hit way away down.

                          As far as underwear is concerned, nothing beats a nice pair of boyshorts.

                            you cheeky kitsune....



                            about this thread... there's nothing much to be curious about. girls just can't go commando. end.

                            now about girlie security in kendo......

                            i have to admit i once missed a dou on a girl... but, it still DID SOUND like a dou... i was like... WTF??? i could swear I MISSED THAT CUT. well, turns out she was wearing some kind of fiberglass chest protector under her keikogi, chest area, lol. lucky me, lucky her.

                            so i was wondering since then.... how many of you girls do actually wear sports bra? or any extra chest protection?? or is it safe to go around topless-commando with the mariahs hanging out loose?

                              Somehow I knew you'd end up on this thread, Paburo. I wear a sports bra, but mostly because I like to be able to change in the dojo. I have worn nothing but a regular bra/camisole on days when I come straight from work and there isn't really any difference for me. Of course it's different for every girl depending on the size of her "mariahs" as you put it.

                                Gotta disagree here. The key is to be relaxed and the boys will hang and swing as you move. No way they should be going side to side in fumikomi but should go right up the alley. If they are restricted that is where they can get smashed. The tare should protect from scro-te hanging or not. I think the dreaded stories are urban myths. In fact, last sunday at the NYC tourney I got a dead on scro-te right to the zekken. Because I was going forward it went off to my left and under the left flap, the inner flap prevented it from penetrating (pun intended)
                                Funniest part was they stopped the match and the head shimpan came over, pulled up my zekken flap, checked to see if it was still tied and adjusted it. I wasn't sure whether I should thank him or not.
