What clothes I wear to make MMA

For training we can use tights or long pants that also facilitate our movements and leave the perspiration, so that the sweat does not bother. They also contribute to the muscular restoration of the lower train, which is widely used in MMAs.

The only thing that accompanies the trousers are the gloves, a sort of glove that leaves the fingers uncovered -except for the thumb- and covers the hand and wrist. However, for our MMA trainings we can use a T-shirt, gloves and boxing boots or even kimonos, according to the MMA genre you practice. As in each and every sport, equipment is basic in mixed martial arts.
