Summarized List With Prices

Here's the summarized list for both Grappling and Striking Gear. Some of the items cross over into both applications of training, making a lot of shopping list smaller than it would seem. I also went out of my way to browse around for prices, to give you a realistic window of how much you can expect to spend on getting a hold of this equipment.

Mandatory:
Supporter and Cup Low Range: $9.99 High Range: $34.99
Mouth Piece/Guard Low Range: $1.99 High Range: $29.99
Support Shorts Low Range: $19.99 High Range: $29.99
Boxing Head Gear Low Range: $34.99 High Range: $69.99
Boxing Gloves Low Range: $17.99 High Range: $69.99
Knee Pads Low Range: $5.99 High Range: $21.99
Shin Guards Low Range: $7.99 High Range: $69.99
Large Target Shield Low Range: $19.99 High Range: $99.99

So for the Mandatory equipment, you're probably looking at a budget starting at around $120 to $430 (depending on the price of your equipment).

Optional:
Wrestling Mats Low Range: $169.99 High Range: $344.99*
Wrestling Shoes Low Range: $34.99 High Range: $124.99
Grappling/MMA Gloves Low Range: $22.99 High Range: $59.99
Wrestling Head Gear Low Range: $15.99 High Range: $29.99
Heavy Bag Low Range $79.99 High Range: $179.99
Wrist Wraps Low Range: $3.99 High Range: $14.99
Instep/Foot Guards Low Range: $5.99 High Range: $79.99**
Ankle Support/Wraps Low Range: $9.99 High Range: $84.99
MT Pads Low Range: $51.99 High Range: $109.99***
Focus Mitts Low Range: $19.99 High Range: $59.99***

Notes:
*This is for a single 4' X 8' size, foldable section of mats. 8' X 8' would be the minimum size needed to train. Price factored in for 2 sections.
**High range is for full leather Shin/Instep Guards.
***This is per pair (MT Pads and Focus Mitts)

For the optional equipment you would be looking at a starting budget of around $590 and up to $1435! I guess the moral of the story is:

Training for MMA ain't cheap.
