Rashguards make an excellent gift for any fighter on your list. Whether you want ones that are IBJJF approved or are looking for designed for more casual wear, there are many companies out there that make rashguards in fun and unique designs. Not sure why your fighter needs a rashguard? See our previous post for more information on this important piece of equipment.
MMA apparel is always the perfect gift. Whether they are headed to the gym or for a night out, fighters love to represent the sport they love with great shirts, hoodies, and hats featuring their favorite brands, fighters or humor about the sport.
Fighters are continually looking for new ways to improve their moves, defeat an opponent, or to just brush up on their technique away from the gym. DVD sets of MMA techniques or fights are a great way for your rising star to continue their MMA education at home.
Training accessories like kettlebells, Bosu balls, or sports massagers make wonderful gifts for the athlete in your life. Hand wraps and gift certificates for healthy food options are lovely, too. Looking to spoil them a little? Give the gift of massage to your fighter and watch their eyes light up.
Pre-workout protein and supplements are always needed by fighters. Whether you choose to give them a gift card so they can shop for themselves or you work with them to select the brands they love and fill a new gym bag with their favorites, your fighter is sure to be impressed with this thoughtful and practical gift.
Safety and protective equipment can be an excellent gift if you know what they need and what brand they prefer. There are many up and coming brands for fighters and MMA equipment on the market. If you're looking to shake things up a little, see about grabbing a set of hand wraps from a new company, and maybe you'll be lucky enough to introduce your MMA fighter to their new favorite brand.
Fighters who spend all day sweating in the gym and rolling around on the mats with their opponents know that cleanliness is essential. There are soaps formulated explicitly for fighters that smell great and can help keep away ringworm. The Armbar Soap Company, FightSoap, and Defense Wipes all make filling your fighter's stocking a breeze.
Giving the gift of your time and support in their training efforts is always welcomed and appreciated. From washing their handwraps to helping with transportation or meal planning, gifting your time and talents to your MMA fighter will help lessen their stress and allow them to focus on their Raleigh martial arts training.
