MMA Shirt: MMA Gear and MMA Clothing

Mixed Martial Arts is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Thousands of adults and children enter the sport every year. As a MMA instructor, I am often asked what gear and clothing does a MMA student need. This is an important question because this is a serious sport and injuries can occur if you do not have the proper gear and clothing. The following gear and clothing is essential:

1. Mouthpiece- A mouthpiece protects the teeth and jaw and reduces concussions. A mouthpiece should conform to the upper teeth so it does not obstruct breathing when your mouth is open.

2. Groin protection-If you are a male this requirement is self explanitory.

3. Rash guard- A rash guard is a tight, spandex type shirt. It is important to wear to prevent staph infections, which are common in MMA dojo's.

4. Boxing/MMA Gloves- You will need boxing gloves for bag work and sparring. 16 oz gloves ar standard. Cheap gloves are made of vinyl and quality gloves are made of leather.

5. Headgear-Headgear helps absorb blows to the head. You should where headgear if you spar.

6. Shin guards- banging legs with a sparing partner is serious pain. I have seen legs get broken.

7. Fight shorts- fight shorts are specifically designed for MMA. The material is flexible. The legs typically have split seems for kicking.

8. Hand wraps-these protect the hands from fracture. You should wrap your hands if you will be doing any punching on bags, mits or sparing.

Well, I'm not going to say that the rash guard counts as an mma shirt, but I guess it's better than no mma shirt. I guess, if the rash guard has a fighter's logo or name, and someone is willing to walk around with it in the real world, then yes, it does count as an mma shirt. Oh well.
