None, as this is where all new people will start.
Your clothing choice reflects your personal style, and your tops and bottoms should make you feel comfortable whether you wear a T-shirt and shorts or a tank-top and long pants, but choose fabrics that soak up sweat from your skin and allow your skin to breathe. Kickboxing clothing should be loose fitting to give you an enormous range of motion in your kicks and punches but not so loose that your pants or sleeves hinder your workout. You don't want to trip over your pant leg when you throw a kick. If you are female, wear a supportive sports bra.
Kickboxing classes require that you wear protective gear. The class includes contact with a punching bag or a person. Wear 16oz gloves that secure your wrists to protect your hands. MMA gloves can be used when ground, stand up sparring, or against small targets such as focus mitts. Wear headgear if you perform contact kickboxing and risk getting punched or kicked in the head.
