Cool Just started training kickboxing... need advice on buying gear please...

I just started training freestyle kickboxing (full contact, blend of boxing/muay thai/karate)

thinking of placing orders for these items:

shorts: http://www.mmapower.com/proddetail.a...d=SP-20&cat=36

compression shorts with cup: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...X0DER&v=glance

mouthguard: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...X0DER&v=glance with case

jump rope: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...X0DER&v=glance

handwraps: http://store.titleboxing.com/title-c...hand-wrap.html

ankle supports: http://store.titleboxing.com/title-c...e-support.html

buying boxing gloves from my sensei.

I will be buying my own headgear and shin guards later on when I have more money...

do I need to get http://www.cagesidemma.com/combat-sp...protector.html for sparring, or should I just use the cup that comes with the compression shorts?

I've ordered from title boxing on a few occasions and each time i have been very happy with the service and the gear i've received so i'd say that is definitely a reliable place to order from.

I like title's products. They definitely are worth the cost, which is actually pretty damn good. And along the lines of mouth guards, when I first started I tried a self-mold from Dick's and it sucked horrendously, so if you can swing it, go for a dentistry provided mouth guard. Also for training, unless you are relying on padding in the gloves, I'd very much suggest head protection. I've been and caused moments of cross-eyed in the past. And its drastically lessened with headgear present.

honestly I wnt to dicks sporting goods and bought the cheapest stuff I could find and it worked fine.

Title MMA and title boxing are good though. I got sparing gear for TKD from that company.
