Why would you need good protection for drilling?

Kickboxing can be done as a cardio workout or as a martial art.

If you choose to do kickboxing as a cardio workout, you will only practice the techniques with the trainer or on a punching bag.

As a form of martial art, kickboxing is used as a technique for sparring / self defense. Which means, you will practice the punches and kicks on each other. Therefore, you would need good padded equipment to defend yourself and to attack without hurting your opponent.

There are equipments availble for protecting your head, shins and your hands. For practice / drilling, all you would need are special hand wraps, kickboxing gloves and shin guards only.

What are Kickboxing Gloves?

If you have experienced that Kickboxing is a really fun sport and you may want to buy your own gloves, the first thing you should pay attention to is the size. The gloves must fit well and be in proportion to your weight, which is why it is best to buy them in a store, not online. If the gloves don't fit properly, they won't provide the right protection.

Kickboxing gloves come in different designs. You can choose a lace closure or a velcro closure. Velcro is the easiest, because then you can easily put them on yourself. That is not possible with laces.

Furthermore, the gloves can be made of PU (nappy leather) or real leather. If they are made of genuine leather, they are expensive, but they last longer and offer better protection. PU materials are the cheapest form made with plastics and less durable. When it is ripped it becomes dangerous for your fingers and the quality of your fist shape. Good protection is important, so we recommend leather gloves or high-quality premium PU quality.

What are Handwraps?

Kickboxing equipment also includes handwraps that you bandage across your wrist, palm and fingers. These strengthen your wrists, absorb sweat, protect your fragile bones in the hand and the palm and ensure that the gloves fit better.

To ensure comfort and good protection pay close attention to the material and to the fit and elasticity.

What are Shinguards?

You will be performing kicks on your sparring partner, the trainer or the punching bag. You absorb the blows with your shins, so you need protection for that. That's why you wear shin guards during training.

These can be made of cotton, PU premium or leather. All offer good protection, but the cheap plastic ones are not allowed in our gym. The choice of one or the other depends on your personal preference, safety is the most important.

You are allowed to try them out in our gym before you buy them. Making sure that it fits your leg is very important. It is not helpful if your shin guards start to twist or shift during training. This will disturb your focus and increase the risk of injuries / accidents.

What should I wear? 

You might be asking if you should wear a certain type of shirt, pants / special footwear.

You don't need any special clothing for kickboxing. As a beginner, ordinary sportswear is sufficient. You can wear shorts or long pants and a T-shirt.

Make sure that there are no protrusions or zippers on your clothing. You can hurt yourself or someone else. Your clothes shouldn't bother you, it's nice if you can move freely.

You can of course opt for special kickboxing clothing. It is thin and wicks sweat well. Usually has a very good fit and has a slit on the side so you can move and kick freely. But in the beginning this is not necessary. It is enough to wear normal sports clothing.

As for footwear, we do kickboxing barefoot. Shoes are not allowed.
