    So im gonna get myself the jaco guardian cup and ive found it online for a little cheaper without the pads so my question is are the leg pads legal for say competition? cause if they are then ill spend the extra money but if they arent i might as well just get used to getting kicked in the leg.

    so what do you think? use them in competition... a normal thinking men would obviously say: "NO"

    Or... get the pads because they're only $10 and get used to checking kicks with pads so it will be instinctive for you in competition. Build your muscle memory in relative comfort.

    train without pads in training and you'll likely start to turn away from kicks... not good.

    Pretty funny that nobody has asked what kind of competition we're talking about. Anyway, yeah, I can't imagine a sport that includes leg kick that would allow you to wear that stuff. I never understood why people bought those things.

    Oh, in that case I'd say don't get them. I'd much rather fuck up and have it hurt than get comfortable with taking thigh kicks:D
