Mitts & Shields

Everyone trains in the martial arts for a variety of different reasons. For some it may be health for others it may be the self defense aspects and lastly for others it may be for a professional career as a fighter. No matter the reason you are training in the martial arts, you will certainly want the correct equipment. And the most heavily used equipment are the focus mitts and shields. Back in the day especially the 60′s and 70′s, you could find some schools using bags of rice to punch. Luckily for us today there are a great variety of different pieces of training equipment that you can buy. Undoubtedly, the most popular piece of equipment is the focus mitt. Focus mitts help the student develop accuracy as well as proper execution of the technique. If you are working on power then the bigger punching and kicking shield is typically used. As it can withstand more powerful blows. Be sure to check with your instructor on how to hold the mitts and shields.

If you are involved in Taekwondo or an art that kicks a lot then try the vinyl kicking targets as they are perfect for allowing you to focus on a small area while at the same time allowing the target holder to be far enough away so that their hand does not get kicked. Whatever the type of martial art you train in using the right gear, focus mitt and shields will help you get the most out of your training.
