I just dropped $200 on new gear
Now I am definitely going back to training almost full time. Bought some sparring gloves, shin guards, MMA sparring gloves, and a red mouthpiece (wanted this for a while now). Its been almost a year since I bought some equipment, so I was a little overdue, but I have been hesitant to spend the $ because I wasn't sure how much time I could devote to the sport. Now that I've gotten a consistent schedule and I have my drive again, it was time to reinvest.M.Ed. Ex Phys

good to see... buying gear sucks... i need me some new rash guards, and a pair of shirts and a new gi would be nice... but what sucks worse is making the time to go.. i feel you bud it is hard. Best of luck to you!

hey Rodja, what did you end up getting? I am looking into adding gear so that I can join in the sparring sessions at my gym, will need boxing gloves, head gear, and maybe shin pads.
the most important piece would be the boxing gloves, and we (well, everyone else) uses them quite a lot in our classes.
any suggestions with a reasonable price tag?

I use 14oz. gloves myself to train. Perfect weight. You don't even need headgear. Well..I never wear head gear when I spar..just not used to it lol. I feel like a big-ass target. I'd rather avoid than take anything w/ the headgear on.

Where did you pick up your gear from Rodja? I am debating on selling my gear, have no time to train right now.
And you should always wear head gear for hard sparring. I hate it but after some good sessions your brain will thank you for it,lol.

yeah not sure what I going to go with, I like the fairtex, I also like a pair of ***** gloves I saw. A lot of guys at my gym just have century gloves and title headgear.

my mma gloves are century, my boxing gloves are title and my insteps are Piranha Gear

MMA Warehouse Rocks man, I love that store.... I'm just getting into training (starting Fri actually)
For your info I'm adding my training sched below... Good luck to you my friend...
5:00-6:30pm Submission Grappling
5:30-7:00pm Takedowns Class (No Gi)
7:00-8:00pm Basic Striking
10:30am-12:00pm Submission Grappling
6:30-7:30pm Adult Open Mat
1:30-3:00pm MMA Basic Training
The coach has advised me that I should be taking the Gi classes as well, since he says he doesn't allow people to fight MMA until they reach a blue belt in BJJ, but I'm not planning on fighting, just want to know how...

MMA Warehouse is top notch. I remember get free stuff before from them. This is many years ago though. Still they offer good service. Actually placed an order with them the other day on there black friday sale.
Title website sells some really good things at decent prices. I have there focus mitts and insteps. The focus mitts felt the same as the throwdown ones.
And what red mouth piece did you get? Sounds pretty cool. I had blue ones before that were pro molded but Vegas summer heat got to them. I have regular clear/black ones now. Picking up a pink one,lol for real though..

I am thinking about buying another gi I was going to get a Fuji because they are dirt cheap where did you get your Reevo gi from?

It's hard to find Reevo on the web, go to a local BJJ school and you should find it there
