Every fighting sport has a unique set of gear. Muay Thai has its distinguished style of equipment that increases safety and enjoyment when participating in this incredible sport. Below is some of Muay Thai gear you need.
Thai shorts, made from nylon or satin are designed short with slits on the sides to reduce friction. They are also loose-fitting and lightweight to facilitate leg movement. You will also need leather gloves.
Something else you must have is hand wraps. These prevent the small hand bones from damage, especially when hitting pads. You will also need a groin protector to avoid pain when hit in the groin.
Your list should also include a mouth guard to keep your teeth safe. You will also require a shin gear, ankle supports, and a headgear. Make sure you get quality ones to facilitate protection.
