    Hello,

    i am looking for a very good Knee protection, especially for Gi rolling!

    We've add 2 classes bjj in a new gym.... the new gym have crazy thin mats, its really hard to roll without "pain".

    So i thought, i order these :

    Asics Super Sleeve Wrestling Knee Pads

    So now i am looking for a shop that delivers the stuff to europe, and most important... i should able to pay with Paypal.

    Any suggestion? Or should i take another Knee Protection?

    regards

    I'd also like some recommendations please. looking for pads that are going to stop my knees from getting battered when shooting in for a takedown.

    The mats i occasionally train on are thin so want some good protection that stays in place well.

    Are the above pads thick enough to absorb impact from shots?

    I use those they're comfortable and less bulky than others.

    I got volleyball style kneepads for judo and they helped so much, especially on the hard tatami judo mats.

    I've been using Cliff Keen Wraptors for past 12 months and they are great. Unfortunately, i do not know of any Paypal site that has them. I ordered mine through CSI and their international shipment was quite expensive.

    I recently got Brute Lycra kneepads from budovideos.com and they're nice as well. They don't offer the sam amount of protection but they are really low profile and can double as a knee compression/warmer or whatever.

    Alternatively, go to Your local Nike store and get thei dri-fit volleyball kneepads (I think they're called skinny as well). They fit nice, are not cumbersome and offer nice level of protection. Word of advice, they are supectible to tear from friction if used on rugged mats.

    One of my instructors just got those and he absolutely loves them.

    I still wear my Acis Victory pads which I like becasue I have horrible knees and need all the padding I can get.

    Mine came in a pair. I just prefer kneepads that have an actual pad. The gel doesn't seem to be enough for me. I just rolled a little while ago and my knee was not feeling good before, but I didn't feel it at all when the pad was on.

    Depends on knee pads. Those super sleeve one come single. I bought them awhile back thinking it was a set and loe and behold. I got box with one pad in it. Did I feellike an idiot.

    Just check the site your buying them from and they should say whether its a pair or single.
