For the trousers we wear black cotton trousers. The ones we would recommend can be found at the following link. You can buy any other alternative brands, just make sure they are plain, cotton and black.
Footwear / Shoes
We recommend flat soled shoes that are light and flexible similar to the picture on the right. There are a wide range of brands to choose from. The cheapest of which would be Lonsdale from Sports Direct. You can buy the Slazenger ones shown from the link below.
Optional Hand Protection for Kids
As an optional extra I would recommend some kind of protection for the hands, although for adults we train without gloves. Gloves may help prevent some scrapes on the knuckles and help with form and power in the early stages. I would recommend thin and light gloves like the ones shown. Click the link below to buy:
Although in the early stages of training you will not require this, you may want to consider later buying sparring equipment, if you have the means and would like to buy some now we can recommend the following.
Any brand of Boxing Gloves should be suitable. For kids we would recommend 6-8 oz gloves and for adults we would recommend 8-12 oz gloves. There are many on Amazon to choose from:
Open Handed Sparring Mitts
You will need these or similar for your open handed technical sparring sessions. Suitable ones can be found on the link below:
We’re not a big fans of foot guards that incorporate shin guards. We would say train without shin guards as this would slowly condition your shins. If you feel you need shin guards you can buy them separately. For feet guards, we would recommend ones that cover your toes. The ones in the link below should be ok:
Under your footguards we spar barefeet, so this means that your feet can get quite dirty. To keep them clean and give you some extra grip we would recommend some socks like these. There are cheaper alternatives but the RDX ones are used by some members with good feedback. You can also get Yoga socks with rubber grips on the bottom.
You can end of spending a lot of money on these but the following should be ok:
We recommend the type that goes on the outside of your trousers for convenience. A range can be found at the link below:
Plenty to choose from at the link below:
Ladies Chest Guard
