Safe Training.

All students need to think about training safely.

GUM SHIELDS

Gum shields are essential to prevent tooth damage from light sparring upwards, so if you want to take sparring seriously make sure you get one soon, RDX do brilliant ones but there are many alternatives on eBay, Tapout, Shock Doctor and SafeJawz are all good brands.

SHIN GUARDS

If students want to kick safely, Shin Guards are essential, not only to protect the person being kicked, but also provide protection for the feet and ankles when kicking. RDX do brilliant Neoprene Shin Guards that tick all the boxes, locking in heat to the lower leg to improve circulation and prevent cramps during training.
