View Full Version : Questions about training gear

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a face cage/protector that is reasonably priced and of good quality. I practice Wing Chun and we're looking for something to use so we can practice our chain punching at full speed. Also, I've tried a bunch of gloves and have never found the perfect one. If anyone has any suggestions on gloves that would be great too. Thanx!

You actually might want to consider hockey masks--the kind that has those thin bars in the front, not the full goalie mask. I'm being honest about this. There is sparring gear at http://www.centuryma.com that has headgear with face shields, but that is NOT strong enough to withstand a full force punch.

Take care.


Surrender yourself to nature and be all that you are.

Yeah we've actually considered that kind of a mask. We even tried a football helmet but there wasn't enough neck support. Oh well. Thanx
