    Hey Guys

    I train MT and have been doing so for about 18 months now.
    When we spar, we mostly kick and punch with some knees, but we cannot throw those knees too hard because the risk of injuring your sparring partner with your knee is pretty high, since its not padded like your fist with your gloves.
    Same with elbows.. we rarely throw elbows, and if we do, only very slowly, again because an unpadded elbow to the face would probably cut it open easily and injure your partner badly.

    Thats why im looking for a good pair of elbow and knee pads. Their main purpose will be to protect my sparring partners, so that i will be able to throw elbwos and knees, of course not full force but still in a realistic way, without cutting their faces open and breaking their noses.

    So yeah, can anyone recommend a good pair of elbow and knee pads to me?

    Like I said, most important thing they are well enough padded to prevent injuries like cuts and broken noses and stuff. Also, they should be as durable and strong as possible and sit on my elbows and knees really firm so that they wont slip away.

    Thank you so much for any answer / recommendation!
