    Good Day Everyone!

    I've seen a lot of kids around who's very interested in MMA and Muay Thai, and the classes are about to end soon, so I wanted to enroll my son to an MMA or Muay Thai class session instead of playing video games at home, well I am not saying that playing video games is bad, but I just want my boy to explore and learn
    new things, and I'm pretty sure it will help him a lot though.

    I've been asking from my friends on what are the things needed for a MMA and Muay Thai class because I wanted my son to be ready for his class and here are some links that my friends referrred to me.


    Do you have anymore shops to refer? :geek:

    Thanks guys and GOD bless.

    if your doing it for your kid and have no idea if he is gonna stay with it, you best bet is to buy stuff on the cheap. Cheack out craigs list, ebay and such. Also, if you want new yet not expensive, I would check out AWMA. asian world of martial arts. gear isn't great, but its good to get for first timmers because its not real expensive and it will last longer than the 6 months it will take to find out if he is gonna stay with it.

    Two excellent online stores with comprehensive inventories for nearly all martial arts/combat sports needs with everything at good to great prices as well as consistently running sales are Title Boxing and Ringside. Other than a few pieces of gear that I purchased on a whim when walking in a store I always order from one or the other of these companies:|pcrid|30499921928|pkw|ringside|pmt|e

    I could diffidently go with you on the Title, they have good equipment at good prices if you are careful. I have several pieces from them. But Ringside is pricey for a kid starting out; who knows if he will be in to it in 3 months.

    Title is a good suggestion though, makes me wish I thought of it.

    I wouldn't get to carried away. Check with the coach first as to what's required.
    Probably a water bottle, mouth guard, cup, mma type shorts and some hand wraps to get him started.
    16 and 8 ounce gloves, head gear and shin/instep padding for sparring I wouldn't get until the coach says he needs it. Most clubs will have some spare laying around for general use and will understand that it can cost quite a lot to kit someone out and how with youngsters that might quit after just a month or two, how annoying that can be.
    Check first before you commit to much financially.
    Otherwise, refer to suggestions above.

    Fighters Inc out of Florida is another good online shop. While most of their stuff is for kickboxing, taekwondo, boxing and traditional martial arts, they do also sell MMA equipment from shorts to octagons.
