    Sites to Purchase MMA Equipment

    If this is in the wrong forum, please move.

    What are some good, reliable websites that sell MMA training equipment? I'm not so much looking for stuff like heavy bags and Thai pads, but more for things like gloves, mouthguards, cups, fight shorts, Gis, and the like.

    My gym sells a lot of stuff, but they are specifically sold out of the size I need for fight shorts, and the Gis are kind of expensive (for BJJ).

    As an aside, I'm taking my first No-Gi BJJ class on Wednesday, What do you wear underneath fight shorts? JUST YOUR REGULAR GARDEN-VARIETY UNDERPANTS?

    Also, I read some threads that say that you can just wear board shorts instead of actual fight shorts. How many people actually do this? Plus, all my boardshorts either have flowers, ladies, or both. I don't have any really cool ones.

    I've been hitting up www.GoTKO.com but they're currently sold out of the fight shorts that I want.

    I often buy stuff from combatsports.com.

    As for what to wear under your shorts, sport-type briefs with a bit of leg on them and a cup works fine for me. You obviously shouldn't be wearing boxers or anything that'll let your junk hang out.

    Some folks in my class wear board shorts. Personally I go for fight shorts since they tend to hold up longer.

    one more vote for http://www.combatsports.com. As for what to wear under, I wear boxer-briefs and a cup under my boardshorts.

    agreed on both counts.

    For a gi, I'd go with HCK. Good quality and decent prices. Plus, they have really good service.

    MMAwarehouse has been alright for me. Ringside is OK. CombatSports (I know, Ringside, Blah blah blah) is kind of hit and miss, at least in my experience. Quality gear, but sometimes it takes forever to get your ****. Inspirit has good fight shorts, about average price, and surprisingly quick delivery (considering it's shipped from Japan). Shipping is set at ten bucks.
