Make sure the place you train at washes their mats on a routine basis. (not neccessarily everyday but every once in a while)

Wash/clean your equipment after every workout. This includes your gi/rashies/gloves and w/e else you use.

Don't work out with someone who seems very hygenically unclean.

And most importantly wash with an antimicrobial soap. I think theres some product called defense soap or something that is designed just for that. Or some surgical scrub like Hibiclens.

alright cool, thanks

i heard that showering after a real hard workout is bad for u.. cud just be amyth tho


Hmm I always heard the opposite about showering. The hot water brings more blood towards your skin and this helps to flush the lactic acid out of your muscles from the workout. This helps relax the muscles and makes it feel good.

But I could be wrong and dont have a source so I would ask the guys in the strength and conditioning forum.

Cold water is what gets rid of lactic acid, the cold water makes your muscles contract and it "squeezes" out the lactic acid, the colder the water the better.

I heard that hot showers are okay and only if you are still kinda sweating. If you wait and let your sweat dry out and then take a cold shower, then its really bad. Ive heard people dropping dead from it. I have no sources or evidence tho, just thought if someone heard of this shit too.

i cant even think about a cold shower after a workout...that shit is brutal... rest is the best way to alleviate the build up of lactic muscle.. IMO cold shower makes ur vessels constrict, hence less circulation... which means less oxygen to the muscles.. warm, however, promotes circulation and dilates the vessels... idk, this is just opinion based on what i know..

edit* i remember wandy going into a tub of ice.. i thought it was just to numb the body..maybe that IS a technique to "squeeze" out the lactic acid..

Wasn't sure where to post this... but this thread seems fairly active, so hopefully I can get some help.

I have a friend who's 4 year old is starting karate and he need equipment that will fit him.

If anyone knows a brand or a website that has very small sparring equipment please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks much! I just checked out their site...

***Second question: I live in Manhattan... is there possibly a store that has a large stock of century (or any other) gear?? Specifically very small sizes... My friends kid is only 4, like I said. I'm sure he'd love to have his kid try the stuff on before he buys it, kind of tough to be certain on the size when buying over the internet.

I'm sure I'll be calling around to various sporting goods stores to ask about their stock... but if anyone has a place in mind, or a lead to throw my way.. I'd appreciate it.

Thanks again all.

And as far as brand i say go with Fairtex, they have some of the best Muay Thai gear and they should fit your price range.


I agree with RubenATC's recommendation of smaller gloves for bag and pad work. I respectfully disagree with the recommendations on here to get 16oz gloves for bad and pad work. Smaller bag gloves let you know you are punching wrong by letting you feel discomfort. I use and absolutely love the Fairtex Hook and Loop bag gloves-- Windy's bag gloves in close second. Use 16oz gloves for sparring. You can go with 14oz sparring gloves if you weigh under 140lb.

If you only have $100 to work with get a nice pair of 14oz - 16oz sparring gloves and then save up for a nice pair of bag gloves.

For years I used the Windy Hook and Loop training gloves for sparring. However, I switched to the Fairtex Safety Sparring because being a hobbit (5'7), the wrist cuff on the Windy Sparring Gloves extend farther up my arm than I like. The Fairtex Safety Sparring gloves do no extend as far up the forearm.

MMA Gloves and gear. These are some important gear you should wear while on training.
For extra layer of protection and moisture absorption you can wear hand wraps or inner gloves under your MMA gloves. ...

Rash Guard. ...
Mouth Guard. ...
Head guard. ...
MMA Shorts. ...
Shin Guards. ...
Groin Guard.


There are so many ways to find these equipment but remember there are no of quality that directly proportional to cost...
