Hand wraps are an essential accompaniment to your training. The reason for this is two-fold: for safety and for sanitation. The tight compression of a hand wrap keeps the wrist and hand safe and secure and helps to soften the feeling of impact for the puncher and to maintain the alignment of the small bones/tendons within that area of the body. Using hand wraps in combination with gloves provides an extra layer of protection from both impacts and bacteria. Just like wearing socks with shoes, wraps help to keep your gloves smelling fresh. Just be sure to wash your wraps after every use.
MUAY THAI GLOVES
Finding the perfect glove can be difficult. In general, choosing the right glove comes down to its use and its weight. 16oz gloves are a good place to start, perfectly suited for fighting, training and bag work. However, it is recommended to have two pairs of gloves; one for sparring and one for bag and pad work.
MUAY THAI SHIN GUARDS
There are a variety of Muay Thai Shin Guards available on the market but most don’t offer your shins and feet the level of protection required in Muay Thai. These Muay Thai Shin Guards are a combination of protection and functionality, with the Velcro closure positioned to ensure perfect support and an easy yet accurate adjustment. We have designed these insteps to protect your entire shin while still allowing maximum mobility to make sure you can perform at your peak.
OTHER USEFUL TRAINING EQUIPMENT
