Mind you I went for five years in a pair of shitty mma guards that came with a package deal at an old gym of mine, but these feel like a #^*#}} CADILLAC when compared.  Comfortable, thick, color makes me happy.  What are your favorites, Coach James?

This is the gear I use most at the moment. Didnt think Id like this style of glove but I really do. For shins I just love Top King. Havent found much else as good to me.

Top King are super nice.  Closer to the shin than my poofy ones.  I’d love to try them but I wonder about my leg length; they look short & I’m long (plus I just dropped $ on the Yokkao’s so obviously cannot).   Can’t see the gloves too well.  “Danger”?  Gloves nice & banged up.  The best.  Shin guards are, sorry to be an artist about it, but they’re kind of beautiful.

Yeah Danger is an off brand made in Thailand (Id never heard of em either). The top king are actually made more for foreigners now (as opposed to Thais) so the sizes fit well. Those are mediums and they cover perfectly. Lol when I was a skater I used to put stickers on everything. Hard to steal something that personalised.

My favourite piece of gear are my Thaismai Cobra shorts 🙂 As soon as I saw them in an online shop I knew I wanted them! They feel great and additionally they are this kind of motivational piece of equipment if you know what I mean 🙂
 

 

Other than that I have a pair of neon colored Venum shinguards that I got because they were on sale at 50% price. I don't have experience with very many different pairs but they feel nice and lightweight and seem to protect well so that's great.

Gloves are a pair of white leather Fightlab gloves I bought from my gym. They seem fine from my limited experience.

Hey Guys!! 

I have some Yokkao 12oz, Fairtex Shorts and Fairtex Wraps. All awesome, loving my gear. However now that I passed to the Advanced course, I need some 16oz gloves and some shine guards. 

Any recommandations? Budget for gloves can be $120, Shin Guard no idea. I just need something durable, great quality. I dont really care about the look. 

Thanks!!

Gloves: Yokkao "Sick" 10oz, Fairtex 12oz; both feel very good of good quality, as I use them a lot and they're still in very good shape.

Shinpads: I have Twins but the laces are quite short, except of that they're fine

Shorts and shirts I love Boon's stuff and style!

Gloves: 12oz Society Nine Bia Boxing gloves. Because of my smaller hands, I like that these are made specifically for women.

Shinguards: Low-Profile Hayabusas. Again, because of my smaller size I like the sleeved fit and smaller build. I also like that they aren't super padded as I'm hoping they'll help condition my shins a little while still offering some protection.

Shorts: Still trying to find the right pair for me... I have some Raja's that are nice, but a little too small for mediums. I recently bought a pair of InfightStyle EZ fight line in medium, and they fit better.

I haven't! Although a couple of the guys at my gym have boon gloves & pads, and they look kush AF, and I do like the retro style...so these could definitely be in my future.

Love retro Boon shorts! The best! 
 

I have twin gloves, bought some Fairtex to try something different but I keep returning to the twins. 
I have twins for shinnies too. 
Fairtex for wraps.

    • Hey! I posted about getting some help on what gym to visit!  First I was set on Sitjaopho but I missed a more structured training routine (Running, more pads etc) So it ended up to be either Manop or Singpatong. I picked Manop cause they seem to be very technical and puts alot of emphasis on very small details to get your technique perfect!  I messaged them on FB about prices and got a link to their website, where it said 10000 Baht / Month so 30000 Baht for my 3-month stay, which is more than alright for me. I phoned them today asking about accomodations and he said they had but I really could not understand the cost for it, so if anyone knows what accommodations go for at Manop that would be amazing! (For 3 months) and also if the price is only for the room or for room+training   Thanks in advance!
    • Hey mate sorry for bumping old thread, im thinking bout going to Manop for 3 months in nov-dec-jan. Everything you described in your posts are what i'm looking for, but there was some things bothering me.   1) From what I read you barely got to spar? Sparring is a huge deal and important for me.. Why didn't you get to spar in the beginning? 2) You seem to spent ALOT of time hitting the bag, why didnt you get more pad-time in the beginning of your training? I really don't know your level and it was hard to tell from the fight 3) (Probably most important) How are they on instructions? Do they correct your technique? how much do they emphesise on that? Do they teach you proper form, sweeps, techniques, tricks, etc? cause from your posts it seemed like you were on your own pretty much the entire stay     Cheers!
    • Adding in another connection between Greek Antiquity and the combat of Siam. Both were slave cultures, and the aim of warfare often consisted of the taking of slaves. This made the regard of an enemy quite different from that of the West where the aim was, often, the capture of (scarce) land with less regard for the enemy.  The knockout, in some sense, may reflect this underlogic of Western land grab warfare, where the killing of the enemy may be a primary goal, whereas capture and control may be aims of slave warfare cultures because the captured enemy became your wealth. More on this as it relates to Thailand:

    • I'll recommend Elite Sports, Yokkao and Fairtex.
    • If you're having problems seeing then it's time to get a Dr somehow and I'm glad you did. So now, unfortunately all you can do is wait. I have been in similar situations and understand how frustrating it is. Good luck.
    • Yes sur if you have a doctor. After I called the hospital (far from my place and no car) they told me to come. A friend of mine gently offer me to drive me there a day or two after this post. After an eye checking a young doctor/student told me that it's a vitreous detachment. I asked about boxe and he told me that I have to wait sometimes and after the vitreous will be totally detached I can practice normally but it's not clear when it will happen. He told me to go back to the hospital after two weeks if I still have this little black dot in my eye and this kind of "lighting bolt" when I move quick my eyes from left to right during night. I didn't yet but soon. He also told me to don't do too much sport (that was very vague) drink a lot of water and don't take hit on the face because in the process of the detachment it can still tear the retina. I hope it will be fixed soon.
