    Yep. The main issue is they move away from the right place. Unless they fit well. Leather ones are more comfortable, but naturally more expensive and not as relevant as fitting well.

    Perhaps if you give more details, someone can help more. Some shin guards are better for MMA, some are better for Muay Thai, some have great style, some are really economic...

    Are the bruce lee signature shin guards any good?

    Im looking for good protection from full contact blows. Easy to get on and off, Comfort, lightweight and maximum move ability.

    They'll be no better or worse than any others...only 1 difference the name Bruce lee so it probably puts the price up a bit. Easy to get on? Are you telling me it's possible to struggle putting them on?

    Fairtex has a good reputation. And the MMA version usually holds better on the leg. You should be fine with these ones.
