    I'm on the market for a new low kick shield and I would like something that is curved and wraps around the leg somewhat rather than the classic flat Thai suitcase.
    I'm thinking something like this:CanBOX.ca - BOES Muay Thai Low Kick Shield

    Anybody knows of other options and have any reviews?

    Thanks.

    Cagesides thai suitcase + 20% off is easily the best priced low kick pad in the market. I just got mine, quality stuff.

    I don't understand why all kick pads and shields are not curved like this. Nobody has a thigh shaped like a big cereal box so why shape the pads like that? When you throw a low kick at someone's thigh, you're connecting with the lower part of your shin only. The foot generally goes past the leg, and if it does connect, it's connecting with the rounded thigh muscles. Kicking box shaped pads can really damage your feet when you connect the top of your foot to the hardened edges of the rectangular shape. It just creates an unrealistic target and creates unnecessary injuries to the feet during training. Go with curved.
