Like anything else in life, there are many answers to this question. Some might say, "You get what you paid for." Others aren't sure and want a minimal output until they see that their child will "stick with it."

There is gear that is extremely economical and sparring gear that is like a Mercedes Benz.

In general, many people will pay in the neighborhood of $50-$150 for their sparring gear, but it really depends on the requirements of the place where a student trains.

Needed- Light gloves such as mma gloves, feet protectors that cover the whole foot, head gear that protects the top and sides of the head, and a mouthpiece.

Usually karate sparring at a begginer to intermediate level, is not at full force, so you don't need that much protection.

But if you want to be really safe,

Optional- Shin protectors, wrist protectors, wrist wraps, face mask, chest pad.

Karate gi (uniforms) can have a variety of different prices. The reason for the various prices is due to different fabric qualities, different fabric colors, and different fabric weights.

At some online supply stores, a 5 year old's uniform might cost the same as an adults. At other places, the prices will vary by size.

You can usually find prices starting in the $10-$18 price range, but these are very light weight (5 oz) and tend to be rather transparent. An adult needs at least an 8 oz and should consider heavier. While the material is thicker, it tends to stand off the skin and not stick. I recommend a 6oz for my students for their first gi.
