comment Do shin guards defeat the purpose of training?
hayabusa makes good stuff, but it's likely overkill and over rated, and is double the price b/c it's stylish. when i was training muay thai and mma alot, i used these: renegademmagear.com/Grappling_Shin_Guards.htm they are solid, and good if you are doing any grappling because they are a sleeve instead of straps.

grapevining is good if you have the knee/hip flexibility to pull it off. unfortunately, i cannot.

it varies, sometimes the hip bump sweep, or when i stay low ish to avoid that, they get back to 1/2 guard easily.
