Protect The Hands
Most trainers will not allow their students to train without proper boxing or martial arts gloves and hand wraps. Wraps are necessary for protecting the hand bones, whilst gloves are used to protect the hands from direct injury (and giving the student the ability to throw harder punches).
Prevent Injury Prior To A Fight
When practicing in preparation for an upcoming fight, it is important that you’re using the correct sparring gear to prevent an avoidable injury. A mouth guard will protect your teeth, whereas head gear will reduce the impact when being punched.
Excellent Physical & Workout
Many people are surprised to learn that sparring or grappling for 3 to 5 minute rounds provides a truly brutal cardio workout, but it’s why you’ll usually see fighters who are in top-notch physical condition. If you’re looking for a cardio workout that will have you exhausted, grab some boxing or martial arts equipment from a MMA warehouse.
Learn Self Defence
If ever the need arises, you will be able to defend yourself against a would-be attacker. Although we all want to think that it will never happen to us (or someone we know), being prepared just in case could save your life one day, when you need strength and confidence in your abilities.
