Headgear Question

Postby gilmorke » Sun Jul 19, 2009 7:32 pm

So I have been doing judo for a while now and am now going to get free kickboxing lessons from one of my friends. I have boxed a lot when I was in highschool and broke my nose twice in the process. I am seeking headgear that will stop this from happening again. I see some that have a full pad below the nose but wanted to get your guys recommendations. Any advice will help.
Thanks

    Get a full face head gear like one of these two that im going to post links too. Probably going to be your best bet to stop a broken nose. Another thing if you get your nose broken sparring you might want to have a serious talk with your sparring partner cause hes going way to hard.

    Personally I would stay away from Everlast headgear, because the stuff the sell for 30-50 bucks is garbage. If you want a good headgear unit that protects your nose then you're going to have to drop some money. You can't really go wrong with the Title Brand if you're on a budget, they offer some really nice gear for an affordable price. Then you have Reyes and Grant which are top of the line but you'll be dropping some serious cash. And of course if you're rich as shit you can always buy the Winning Brand that all the pro boxers use.

    Ringside.com
    Combatsports.com
    Titlemma.com

    Try those sites, they have a large selection and you should find something you're looking for.

      Yea I didnt mean buy Everlast just to clear that up. I was referring to 'face protector' and 'cage' style of headgear. I personally have a Fighting Sports headgear and I love it.

      nice, If you end up getting their training gloves as well you should write a review on them. I'm interested to know how they perform.
