  • Some Tennis balls (at least 12-15)
  • Several broken man long socks (black, gray or blue)
  • Some footballs (3 or 4 are more than enough)

The training suite

  • 2-3 black T-shirts with short sleeves
  • 1-2 pairs of basic gloves, not too padded and that allow free movement in the fingers
  • 2-3 pairs of men’s socks long well stretch and resistant (black, gray, or blue)
  • 2 pairs of black pants in polyester (or other materials that slide well on the body)
  • 1-2 pairs of shoes for kung fu (black)

We tried to stay in an area of maximum economy, the more expensive things are weapons (high quality, high price) but we will purchase only after reaching a certain level of skill, for the moment what we have described is more than enough.

In future articles we will explain the uses and capabilities of what we have listed.
