MMA is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. This may be due in part to the combination of martial arts techniques from around the globe and the fact that it is high intensity.
Having the right gear is essential to staying safe while enjoying the sport. There are a few categories you will want to look at.
MMA Gloves/ Hand wraps
When you are looking at MMA Gear, it is also important that you have gloves and hand wraps for your gym bag as well. You should keep in mind that there is a difference between MMA gloves and “MMA training gloves” (which is known “asguanti da allenamento MMA” in Itallian). It is best to have both types of gloves as well as wraps so you are prepared for whatever the instructor throws at you.
If you want to keep your body protected, it is important that you have the appropriate padding.
Now you can find pads for your elbows, shins, knees, head and more. While these each have their place, it can be hard to fight with all of these on. However, especially when you are starting out and learning good blocking techniques it is especially beneficial to wear them.
Even if you do not feel that you need to wear them all the time, you should buy them and keep these items on hand in the event you are injured to keep from getting hurt worse.
