Buying Equipment for a club, limited budget
Hi, I'm going to be running a casual Martial Arts club at my university and I need some suggestions on the stuff that I'm probably going to be picking up -- mainly two sets of thai pads, and a few sets of bag gloves.
My budget is around $400. I live in the Scarborough, Toronto area and I commute to Downtown at University of Toronto.
While I would like to buy tested and true brands such as Fairtex, they are simply too expensive for such a budget. So instead, I was wondering if anyone has had experience with M.D.S.S. Thai Pads, or
http://www.wushuonline.ws/store/prod...=1&prod_id=156 (pardon the wushuonline business, they sell some legit sparring equipment from what I can see) I'm going to be buying 4 of these in total, total $203.24
Alternatively I could buy this brand, which seems slightly more expensive but looks slightly more like the classic Thai pad
http://www.allmasterssupplies.com/pr...s=1&prod_id=47 (they actually cost $50 where I'm buying them from, and I'd need 4 again, total $226)
Next, I need to buy bag gloves because all the other kinds are too expensive. I don't want to buy Everlast, and I found these Century Bag gloves on the same site for fairly cheap.
Does anyone know if Century Bag gloves are any good?
Thanks for your help guys!
