Free sparring gear – MightyFist black vinyl gloves and boots, $140 per set. These come in various sizes, so you will need to ask a student with sparring gear to check sizing. Students should have their own free sparring gear before they attain green belt. We use this in class, so most students buy their own gear well before then.
Clear mouthguards – required for all students (except Kubz) at all training sessions, $10 each.
