Thank you for your reply, yes I do love the energy of the sport and that combined with the fitness aspect of it makes it a win win for me. If you are just starting I suggest you check out some good deals hear on Amazon
In my next few posts I will be covering bags, wraps and for the protection aspect of it your mouth guard and headgear for when you go to the next level of sparring. I had my first sparring fight on Friday. My opponent chose not to come out for the third round. My first technical knockout win.
