i've never used Combat sports equipment, their shin instep guards have had some decent reviews but i'm unsure about their gloves... for the price ($24.99) suppose you can't go wrong. look into investing in some Twins gloves if you decide to take up MT.
Thanks yeah I've done bjj and regular boxing for a year now but am looking forward to the challenge of Muay Thai. Thanks for the advice I'm going to go with 12oz for now and then buy a seperate pair of 16oz or 18oz gloves for sparing when I work up to the sparring phase of training down the road!

Thanks again guys,

Brick

Ps More replies if peeps have additional advice thanx!
