How to Gear Up for Muay Thai


Muay Thai, also known as “Art of Eight Limbs” is a historic martial art that was developed in Thailand.

Legends such as Samart Payakaroon, Dieselnoi, Saenchai have turned this art into a global sport. It is also the national sport of Thailand.

Thai ancestors trained the younger generation Muay Thai to help protect the nation against invaders. They never used any weapons, but believed in using their body as one. Their entire body is utilized in close-combat form.

Fun Fact: Muay Thai is by far the most effective striking art in the world.


You don’t really need to protect your nation from invaders in the 21st century.

However, to protect yourself from heavy blows, you need training gear in your gym bag while training.

Your only limit is the size of your budget and the size of your gym bag.


Here are 7 pieces of equipment you need in order to get started in Muay Thai.


1. Gloves

Gloves are very important because the protect your hands and wrists as well as your opponent.

They are different from pure boxing gloves because they allow you to open your hands and get grip.

Fairtex Boxing Gloves can help you protect yourself and your opponents from severe injuries.

Make sure you purchase the right fit for your hand and wrists.

Mouthguards are very essential when you fighting your opponent as they save your teeth from nasty blows. If you get knocked out, it will cost you more than a mouthguard. 

Professionals recommend wearing a mouthguard every time you train or spar. 

Fairtex Mouthguard will help you protect yourself from causing serious injuries to your teeth or gums.
