Shin guards are an important part of the protective equipment in martial arts and play a crucial role in protecting the legs from injury during training and competition. Choosing the right leg protection is therefore necessary to guarantee both safety and comfort. Below are answers to some common questions related to leg guards for martial arts.
How do i choose size on my shin guards?
Choosing the right size leg protector is essential to ensure a proper fit and optimal protection. To choose the right size, you can use the manufacturer's size guide that we have posted on most product pages. The protection should not go over the knee and the buckle should not be too short or too long. It is important that the leg protection fits properly without being too loose or too tight.
Do you need special shin-pads for competition?
Leg protection requirements may vary depending on the martial arts and competition rules. Some martial arts may have specific rules for approved leg protection during competitions - we often mark products that are approved by associations such as SMMAF. It is important that you consult the rules that apply to your specific martial art and level of competition. To be on the safe side and avoid possible problems, it is recommended to use shin guards that are approved according to the competition rules.
What material should i choose?
Shin guards can be made from different materials, each of which has its own advantages and disadvantages. The most common materials used are foam rubber, neoprene, leather and synthetic materials. Foam rubber is light and provides good shock absorption, while neoprene provides a good fit and stability. Leather is durable and provides excellent protection, but can be heavier and take longer to break in. Synthetic materials are often lightweight and dry quickly. It is important to choose a material that suits your martial art and personal preference.
How do shinguards differ between different martial arts?
Shin guards can vary between different combat sports depending on the specific requirements and needs of each sport. For example, leg guards for muay thai can be stronger and cover a larger part of the leg/foot to provide better protection against hard kicks. Similarly, leg guards for karate can be shorter and more flexible to facilitate quick movements and fit under trousers. Other martial arts may also have their own specific requirements and designs for leg guards. It is important to choose shin guards that are adapted for your specific martial art to get the best protection and comfort during training and competition. We usually write which sport the leg protectors are suitable for, on the respective product pages.
When choosing shin guards for martial arts, it is important to take into account size, competition requirements, materials and the specific needs of the sport. In short, it can be said that strong shin guards in synthetics and leather are well suited for Thai boxing. Slimmer and stocking shin guards are suitable for MMA, and lighter cotton and foam shin guards are best suited for more traditional budo such as karate and taekwondo.
