You won’t need to buy any of this for your first few classes, you can simply turn up and train 😉
Boxing gloves traditionally come in different ‘weights’ instead of sizes.
I usually suggest the following for your size and for our style of training:
12oz = Small / Teenagers
14oz = Medium / Womens
16oz = Large / Mens
FOCUS MITTS / PADS:
You’ll want a pair of these that are curved and cover your fingers.
They’re almost always ‘one-size-fits-all’, so no need to worry about sizes here.
SHIN INSTEP GUARDS / LEG PADS:
These are if you’re going to join up and start grading/sparring.
GUMSHIELD / MOUTHGUARD:
You’ll need to ‘mould’ these to your mouth/teeth. It’s really easy to do, there are instructions inside the pack, but the long and short of it is: pop it into hot water, let it soften up then mould it to your teeth. You’ll need to do it a few times, pressing it into your teeth – don’t burn your mouth!
If you’re going to spar, you’ll definitely want one of these guys. Definitely.
