You asked, “Which Bauerfeind ankle support is best for BJJ grappling and movement drills?”
“In the end, both these braces offer excellent stability, support and comfort. I’d say the determining factor is this: if you’re just coming back from an acute injury and you need a little bit extra stimulation and support around those tendons for increased blood flow and faster recovery go with the MalleoTrain Plus, if you’re just looking for something to offer you streamlined stability for injury prevention go with the Bauerfeind Sports Ankle Support.”
