Just starting muay thai? I started with handwraps, 16oz gloves and a jump rope. You don't need much else till you start sparring. I suggest spending a little more on your gloves, roughly around the 80-100 dollar range. I've seen a lot of people pick up cheap 30-50 dollars gloves to start and they fall apart with regular use around the 5 month mark. I still have my first pair of gloves (Twins) for close to 2.5 years now, they're being used as my bag gloves now and they're still in pretty good shape.

Whats the difference in the weights, is it just a matter of comfort or training purposes?

so you can build up hand speed and hand endurance so they don't drop in the last round.

Heavier gloves mean quicker hands when the gloves are off or when the glove weight drops. I suggest 16oz since they'll build up some endurance in your shoulders and they're the ideal size/weight for when you begin sparring later on.

just about done my week trial at dynamic and thought i should leave a review. Its great atmosphere. Great instructors and you pretty much just jump right into the class. everyone in the beginners class has been really helpful giving me tips and helping me with form. I think i have committed to this place only thing is my arms and legs are sore. but i don't really feel the burn in my abs. But its okay cause its nice to sweat. and the class really gets you to sweat. And DONT MAKE YOUR FIRST CLASS A FRIDAY its taught by another guy (mike i think) and he really pushes you which is good for my 3rd class unless you want to be pushed. That is all for now.

check these sites out if you want BRAND name MMA, Muay Thai and boxing gear

I bought A LOT of gear such fairtext gloves for 50 bucks, Windy shin guards for 60 bux, MMA gloves for 25 amd much more from these sites For BJJ I bought several GI's such as KORAL, and KEIKO RECA for just a little over 100 dollars.
I need to search for that website again and i'll post it here.

http://www.ringside.com/

http://www.combatsports.com/

I had it sent to http://www.blaineenterprises.com/ which is right across to the border to save money and time on shipping.

hope this helps you!!

Any budget MMA (or martial art) gyms around Langara area?

I'm just looking to get physically stronger, fit, and for self defense (if the occasion arises), so it doesn't have to be MMA, just anything that requires me to be more physical.

could be anything from boxing to muay thai to jiujitsu to wrestling

which one are you most interested in? picking the one you're more likely to enjoy will mean that you'll continue to do it as a hobby instead of treating it as a work out and you'll get more enjoyment out of it

keep in mind that boxing is going to be the cheaper option of those.

jiu jitsu/muay thai/wrestling/mma classes are usually in the $100+ range. dynamic mma does offer a combination of all of those for ~$150/month if you pre-pay for 3 months in advance. they're really good because they're close to langara and they have classes mon-sunday and their schedule is pretty good compared to the rest of the gyms out there.

Adam teaches the jiu jitsu/mma part and Joel does most of the muay thai training. I don't go there anymore but I enjoyed my time there and all the guys were real nice and understanding to the noobs that showed up.

http://dynamicmma.com/

They offer a free 1 week trial so you can see how you like it and whether its for you before you drop the money for it.

If you are in Richmond, check out Richmond martial arts. I teach the kids there. They run the Bas Rutten MMA system and the classes are starting to get really good . Otherwise, if you're just in the Vancouver area, take dynamic.

There's the place that Nintensity works out of and Dungeon Grappling out of Sport Central. Their bjj is based off of Eddie Bravo's stuff (10th planet jj)

Universal mma. It's on Westminster or elmbridge and inbetween 2 and 3 (closer to 2). It's run out of the top portion of a fitness gym.
