Martial Arts Headgear
Protective headgear is available in many different shapes and styles, each with differing approaches to keeping your noggin' from a floggin'. It can start to get overwhelming! The exact specifics of what type of headgear you should be looking for should definitely be discussed with your martial arts instructor. They will offer you the best insight as to what variety of head guard you should purchase. The most prominent style of headgear is sparring Foam Headgear. Typically made from dipped foam and designed to absorb the majority of head blows, this style is typically the first type of headgear martial artists are introduced to. But they are not the last.
For example, head protection like the Headgear with Clear Shield is designed with a clear plastic front, minimizing the chance for injury to the actual face of a martial artist. Headgear like our UFC Professional Headgear are designed for impact absorption as well as keeping that cauliflower ear in check with a full-back design and durability to withstand hours of mat rolling.
