What's inside the kit bag?





  1. Gi - Faixa Rua Classico (one of four currently in use)

  2. Belt - blue Evolution Fightwear size 3, cut to size

  3. Rash guard - Koral short sleeve

  4. Ear guard - Brute Shockwave

  5. Groin guard - Shock Doctor Ultra Carbon Groin Guard

  6. Gum shield - Opro custom fit, stars on blue

  7. Tape - Boots stretch dressing tape

  8. Contact lenses - Acuvue One Day toric lenses

  9. Spectacles case

  10. Fight shorts - Atama

  11. Protein drinks shaker - Sci-Max mixer

  12. Deodorant spray - Adidas sport

Funny. For an empty hand martial art, one sure can bring a lot of stuff along to class. Some guys rock up to class with nothing more than their gi and belt. Others lug a sports bag so huge, you could sleep inside one. I'm kind of in between. I carry all this with me because I really need them for every session. For competitions though, rash guard, ear guard and groin guards are not allowed. The tape is really handy for all sorts of emergencies, mainly bolstering finger joint pain. I always bring spare lenses and my glasses. The drinks bottle is great for avoiding lumpy protein shakes. And I always bring shorts just in case someone wants a bit of no-gi sparring. This is pretty much everything that is inside my kit bag.

I think you might want to leave out the groin guard and mouthguard too. They ming a bit.

I'm more on the spartan side. When I first trained, I wore a mouthguard and cup, and even board shorts under my gi.

Anymore, I wrap my gi up in a little package. I generally wear a rashguard, but that's about it. Gi, belt, rashguard and a G2. I rarely use tape, but keep a roll in the car, just in case.

Yo Sey, not like the typical traveling instructor Trad JJ kit bag - tape, first aid kit, loads of various suports, training knife(s), spare belt, loads and loads of paperwork, inc sylabus sheets, register, injury book, licences, certificates, zories, and numerous bits collected from the dojo over the past few months. Yep, I think that you are right, I recon I could sleep in my bag, if I cleaned out all the rubbish. (G @ NKJJK)
