also where do I get a good mouth piece? Do you really need the custom ones?
Any insight would be wonderful
My phylosophy is to learn as much as you can. Get at least a little exposure to everything.
I was an amature boxer and high school wrestler and have transitioned more to Muay Thai and BJJ.
for a custom one. You don't need a custom guard but you will be more comfortable with one. You can even talk with it in. I guess they also offer a bit more protection.
