    Hey guys,
    I'm fairly new to kickboxing, and to here, and was wondering if any of you could help.

    I live in Manchester and was wondering if any of you knew any decent places to buy gloves, focus mitts and head guard/protection? Shops in Manchester or internet sites please.

    Thanks
    Jay.

    Gets all his gear made for him so you'll only find it at his shop in Radcliffe, Manchester. Good prices and the stuff look good.

    edit: website link doesn't work now, did last week.(I've let him know it's down so try back later in the week) Try 0161 723 3276 /0161 725 9736 instead.

    1-3 Adelphi Street, Radcliffe, Manchester.

    There is a quite small ma shop near Piccadilly but it's not great. Not bought stuff from here but I fancy getting some stuff from here myself:
    http://www.kickboxingshop.com/product.aspx?pid=442&cid=2289

    Fightshop.com have a big warehouse type place that's open to the public, I can't remember the address, I have it somewhere. They also have a website.

    Have you been there Adsy? I contacted the guy on another forum about going and trying things on and getting some gloves and stuff. Annoyingly they only open Mon-Fri!

    Yeah only office hours unfortunately 9.00 to 5.00pm Monday to Friday , because they arent strictly open to the public so they dont "open" at weekends. However its worth ringing up and check what time you want to drop round, because more oftern than not there is someone there late until like 8.00pm or even weekends if you ring ahead they may open up for you. I live in Chorley and i've been there at 7.00pm and bought stuff. I heard they were totally changing the Fightshop.com website soon as well, there was an article on it in this month's fighters only. You been to Shor Chana yet Lou ? :)
