A Guide To Krav Maga Training Equipment
Proper clothing and equipment are essential to get the most out of your training. Proper equipment helps your form, which prepares you for defense against attackers, and can protect you and your sparring partner against injuries. Gear designed for other martial arts (such as karate, jiu jitsu, etc.), may not meet the requirements of Krav Maga Worldwide training.
Be prepared for training with the right Krav Maga equipment and always consult your instructor when in doubt.
Krav Maga clothing
Basic sportswear is a good start. This can be shorts and a t-shirt, a tank top or long pants, such as jogging pants or yoga pants. Your clothing must be flexible and comfortable enough not to obstruct your complete freedom of movement.
Certain materials work better than others. A cotton or cotton T-shirt ensures that moisture is removed. You can also get Krav Maga clothing that represents your affiliation.
Rash Guards – Available in long and short sleeves, rash guards are similar to a spandex t-shirt. During grasping, your skin may be pulled or planed by the grip of your partner or the training mat. Rash guards help to protect your skin and fit snugly to offer you complete freedom of movement, wet or dry.
Krav Maga Gear Basics
Krav Maga Store is a self-defense and combat system intended for survival situations in the real world. The closer your training comes to the real deal, the better prepared you are. This means that you need a protective material that is thick enough to hit and can be hit hard without being afraid of injury.
These are a few things that you cannot or should not train without. Whether for utility or safety, these items of clothing and equipment must always be in your gearbag.
Portable protective cushions – At least the mouthpiece, gloves, headgear, crotch protector and shin guards must be personal property. These devices catch a lot of sweat, saliva and occasional blood. You don’t want to share.
While your training facility has a lender or shared Krav Maga such as shin guards, hand and wrist wraps or headwear that you can borrow, owning your own is more hygienic. It is also best to have equipment that suits you and that works well. Protective cushions should help protect you against dangerous shocks during training and provide sufficient freedom of movement to have a realistic training experience.
Bags and gloves – hitting is an important part of your attack, so make sure your punches and kicks are good for sniffing. Bag or boxing gloves give your hands extra protection while striking. MMA-like gloves with open fingers offer minimal filling, but a more natural fighting feeling. Heavy bags are a great all-round training aid to add to a home gym, but the addition of a speed or rhythm bag can help you refine your timing.
This Krav Maga gear falls into the “nice to have” category. Whether you only want to avoid borrowing equipment (and other old sweat) or want to equip home equipment, these items are great to have on hand.
Your training center will most likely have equipment of this type for use during your training, so pack extra Krav Maga clothing and equipment if you need it.
Pads – If you are training with a partner, mittens and goal pads are great for both structured routines and reaction exercises. Thai pads offer a larger target area and more padding for the most difficult kicks. Shields work well for aggression exercises.
Dummies – You can’t put an arm bar on a heavy bag. Grappling dummies are the anatomically comparable Krav Maga equipment that you need to practice safely alone or with a partner. Meanwhile, pacifiers give you a tough bag that you can use and abuse while practicing strikes, reaming and throwing.
Training Weapons – Although it may look cool on the movie screen, using real weapons during training is a great way to visit your local emergency room. Keep the real guns and knives safe and use professional training weapons instead. This Krav Maga training material is designed to simulate normal blades and firearms. They are important for the safe practice of arm exercises while you and your partner equipment have the same weight and hand feel of the real thing.
Training Sources – Books and DVDs do not teach you as well as a live instructor, but they are a tool for home study and for refreshing the foundations. Clear, step-by-step instructions tailored to the way you learn can help you improve your technique between lessons or lessons.
Quality Over Quantity
When you choose the right Krav Maga Gear or clothing to practice with, make sure you get equipment that can withstand the rigors of training. “Value” equipment is not a good value if it needs to be replaced regularly. If you need tips on what to look for in professional-quality training aids, contact a Krav Maga Worldwide branch or branch and talk to a certified instructor.
