Not sure what you need? While exact kit will vary depending on style, and training in particular weapons will usually require you to have your own (although some clubs will lend these out), generally what you’ll need is: a head-guard, a gum-shield, gloves (these vary), shin pads, foot-pads and a groin/chest guard. Some clubs will provide you with this kit, but its always nice to have your own!
Before you buy anything, it is well worth checking with your instructor/coach that you are getting the right gear. If nothing else, some clubs sell their own branded kit and others may even be able to provide you with kit at a discount!
There are a lot of brands out there, so be sure to browse through our independent equipment reviews – we will have more going up soon.
