I started martial arts in Junior High, a little American Style Tae Kwon Do school and one of my favorite memories of childhood is getting my first set of
sparring gear for Christmas. My father bought me and my two brothers a full set with a gear bag. We were in South Carolina at the time so my brothers and I
sparred outside on a gorgeous Christmas morning with shiny new hand, feet and head gear.
Tae Kwon Do gear is always a worthwhile investment in your own martial arts journey. Often Your gear bag is composed of several pieces not unlike a knights
armor. They protect all the key areas of the body. A full set of gear usually consists of head gear, hands, feet, chest protector, shin guards, mouth guard
and an athletic supporter for men. The styles differ from brand to brand and all of them offer protection for your body, but they do not fully prevent
injury and strikes to the head should be avoided even with the protective gear.

it offers no protection of the chin. The sizing can sometimes be difficult, but their website does offer all the information you need to size the

ProForce Combination Cloth Shin And Instep Guard
Protection is necessary, but there has to be something said for comfort. The ProForce combination cloth shin and instep guard is comfortable. I often
found the vinyl covering the foam uncomfortable once it got sweaty. The cloth gear wicked the sweat away and just felt better than the standard gear. ProForce
has been in the industry since 1992 and they have always provided quality Tae Kwon Do gear. It stands up equally alone or as an extra layer to protect
your shins and instep.

TMAS Hogu Chest Protector
TMAS Hogu Chest Protector is a big chest guard. It was designed by Macho and features blue targets on one side of the gear and red on the other. It is
covered in soft vinyl and is great for practicing focused punching or side kicks as the chest protector is made of high density EVA foam and offers
excellent coverage for your torso and midsection. As Tae Kwon Do gear goes it is unwieldy for point sparring, but overall it offers the protection
your need and can be adjusted with straps in the back to suit your needs.
