Looking for some knee shin guards, like ice hockey type.
Any suggestion apreciated
thanks in advance
You not found any since September?
Ive got shin guards and separate knee guards, but wondering what others recommend for a combined option. As it take awhile to get mine on and off.
I’ve never seen any, outside of baseball catchers’ knee/shin guard and hockey. I’ve seen plenty of combined foot and shin, but not shin and knee.
I would go the other way and buy a helmet.
Curious what would the knee guards be used for? Weapon sparring?
I have my students buy the baseball ones which covers the shin and the knee. They usually have 2 straps. So easy on... easy off.
I prefer not to use the giant ones that you sometimes see Catchers or ice hockey players have. The problem is that the knee protection is huge. And it causes you to walk... and move with your legs apart more than natural. We don't use them for weapons. We kick into them. Training, self defense drills. Even with them you end up with bruised shins at times. MMA shin guards would never suffice. We use them for other things.... The baseball shin guards take the most abuse.
That doesn't sound very efficient. Wouldn't combining your knee and shin guards cause your to have less freedom of movement for kicks and footwork?
There isn't a combining. It's one set.. Go take a look at the shin guards I am talking about... or the ones above in the attached video.
And it beats getting kicked in the shin without any shin guards/knee protection.
