Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a full-contact combat sport that mixes many techniques and fighting styles from a variety of other martial arts and combat sports. Participants wear MMA shorts and males are bare-chested, while females wear a snug top, such as a sports bra. Whether you prefer the sprawl-and-brawl or ground-and-pound fighting styles, it's important to cross-train, and you can find all the MMA gear, MMA equipment, martial arts supplies and MMA training accessories right here at Academy Sports + Outdoors.
MMA shields are designed with striking surfaces so you can perfect your kicks, punches and strikes during partner training. They often are constructed with durable exterior materials, such as synthetics or vinyl, and lightweight, impact-resistant fillings, like foam. Most are equipped with handles in various locations to provide a great grip during high-impact blows.
In addition to shields, a wide variety of other training gear and equipment items are offered in our collection, from punch mitts to MMA gloves and gym chalk to MMA shin guards and additional protective gear. Various punching bags and simulators are also available for training solo.
