    starting MT

    Hey guys, I'm starting MT/MMA to go with my BJJ this summer and I was wondering what kind of stuff (material and immaterial) seasoned strikers would reccomend that I should know and buy before starting. I've done shitty striking arts in the past but I don't really remember much and non-gay striking is probably a whole other world anyways (no meditation, forms etc.)

    To start off with you can try in regular shorts and t-shirt. Ankle supports can help but aren't a necessity. I'd recommend getting a pair of wraps and getting a cheap pair of gloves to start off with or you'll be using the cheesy smelling old gym ones.

    If you want to spar then you'll need some nad protection, a mouthpiece and shin pads

    Go to class first. Your coach will know what you are doing better than nerds on the internet.

    Shark is right. Make sure you actually like the class and want to stay and then see what your coach recommends.
