BEGINNER EQUIPMENT

Your Gear needs to be wiped out, sprayed and air dried immediately after use.  Drying Gear in front of a Fan is  a good idea. Wet gear in a Gym Bag will cause Bacteria to grow!

 

CLOTHING

School T-Shirt

Solid Black Athletic or Fight Shorts.  Fight Shorts are more durable and and Stay on

Blank Shorts from CAGESIDE and Cagewalk

Compression Shorts over a Jock Strap is best.

Compression Shorts with built in Cup don’t stay in place well.

PADS

JUMP ROPE

 

HANDWRAPS

When you are doing multiple hard rounds of Heavybag, Handwraps are a good idea.

Velcro ‘quickwraps’ don’t work well. “Mexican Style” (semi-elastic) 180” are a good choice
