    Who sells arm bands? Fairtex is all out and wont have any for weeks. Who has large selection of arm bands and ankle wraps?

    I thought the arm bands were given to you like a belt in MA........

    No no and no. They are a purely religious and traditional aspect that have to do with your kru and school and family. Schools use them as a way to show skill, level, etc in MT. This is not pure muay thai in any way.

    The belt is in the ring!!!

    Check out Kru Vut's website here: http://www.vutmuaythai.com/

    And ask your kru first about which colors. Most schools, etc or lineage have a certain combination of colors, designs, etc etc. Plus they can tell you which amulets to use. They are like the wai kru, each school has their own.

    I've often wondered if those arm bands restrict punching performance

    WTF do you want the armbands for? that will not make your thai any better, and it won't impress the neighborhood teenagers, walking around like the Ultimate Warrior.

    Thanks, saw them, but from the pic they look like they are made of yarn.

    Does anyone else know any other places that sell arm bands????
