Hey swpthleg, sorry I didn't see that one earlier. The IMF Tech Gloves would definitely cover your Sparring, Bag and Mitt/Pad work in spades. They are strictly striking gloves, and although I have done "sprawl and brawl" type drills with them, rolling with them on sucks. They just aren't the right tools for the job. For that, you would get some grappling gloves. This is an awesome pair for that, and a great deal.

If you absolutely need a second pair of striking gloves (which is always a good idea if you don't want to get stuck with the old, stinky gloves lying around the gym), I would readily suggest these here. They aren't the fanciest or nicest feeling gloves, but they are a great all-purpose glove that you can abuse at a reasonable price.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

People actually use grappling gloves??? If im getting ready for a fight and im just rolling i will just throw on my MMA training gloves, I don't really get the point of grappling gloves....

and knee pads? I don't really see anyone wearing knee pads anymore.

Because some of us have not conditioned our knuckles very well and need more padding *whistles*

Thanks Onganju!

Knee pads for wrestling are common place. If I do a ton of drilling shoots without a kneepad, I'll know about it for the rest of the week.

Great list very useful.

I would also put down MMA shorts as a "must"

Make sure they have the split near the knee, they are also really good for Muay Thai and don't obstruct your kicks. Get elastic ones but with a draw string, you will also want them 1 size smaller than your normal shorts size.
