When you’re shopping for your MMA gear, you should do a bit of research to know what gear is appropriate for each aspect of your training. You will need a few different pairs of gloves and pads for striking; rashguards, spats, and maybe even a gi for grappling and other equipment like hand wraps and mouthguards that you might not even have thought of.
