Shin protection is paramount in the MMA training world. The freestyle nature of mixed martial arts allows for punches, grappling, and of course kicks. When fighters are training in the gym, practicing kicks is one of the more important exercises because a single kick can mean the difference between winning, losing, and/or a knockout! It is important the fighter isn’t restricted to a lighter less effective kick while practicing because in a fight, everything needs to be thrown as hard as possible. It doesn’t make sense for you to have to limit your kicking ability out of fear of getting injured. So we came up with the Hybrid Elite MMA Shin Guards. These shin guards are built for maximum protection to allow full scale training. Premium injection molded foam padding is used, and wrapped in the highest quality leather. Also, our patented Cross-DSS strapping system makes sure these shins stay in place even during the most active and aggressive exercises!
