All Gear and Equipment is subject to Instructor Approval and must be approved BEFORE participation.

Small logos may be difficult to avoid, however, we prefer unmarked equipment and uniforms. We may require any such visible labels or markings to be removed. No student may use any items deemed disruptive, such as political  or cultural references, logos of other schools or other messages judged, by us, as inappropriate. The ‘Fit’ and finish of materials must also be deemed appropriate by instructors. Items vary greatly in cost; a student should not feel pressured to spend more than necessary. After all, Training is not a fashion show!

We recommend purchasing from companies with a strong return policy…purchase different styles and sizes and return those items that were not approved or didn’t fit well (especially clothing and headgears). We do not receive  commissions or incentives of any kind from the below links. They are provided only to help with a starting point for your shopping. Beware, many companies claiming to sell items made in Thailand are not authentic. We endorse  Thaismai, Windy, Twins, and Fairtex. There are also lower priced alternatives available thru Amazon. The links below are not guaranteed to be accurate.
