I'm new to bjj and muay thai and i have no clue what i am looking in equipment. i know i need 16 oz. gloves but i don't know what i should look for as far as quality goes. I have a mouth piece for ice hockey that is supposed to protect from concussion but i'm not sure if it is fit for fighting.
I was also told that i will probably want to buy some shin guards as well... again im clueless. I'm having doubts about their worth. necessity?
i'm wondering if i would need to look at MMA style gloves but i can't see their worth in training.
I am looking for Good but somewhat reasonably priced gear. I'm seventeen and my current job doesn't pay much so i need something that will last and keep me from injury but wont cost me a limb.
