- Answers -Martial Arts Programs: What do I need to bring to my first class? Gloves - For striking classes (Muay Thai, Boxing, Women's Kickboxing) you will need boxing gloves. Any glove that is closed and does not expose the fingers or palm will be fine. Eventually you will need shin pads and a mouth piece as well. All can be purchased at our pro-shop. Clothing - Simply wear something comfortable to move around in. Shorts and a t-shirt will do just fine. We do not wear shoes on our mat so bare feet or socks is preferred.
