Today Muay Thai is very popular, but due to its hard hitting technique, it is recommended to perform in a special protection designed for this kind of martial arts.
Beginners often ask themselves: how to choose Muay Thai shin guards? We are talking about leg protection, which greatly reduces the risk of injury to the lower leg and ankle joint.
Currently, many manufacturers produce Muay Thai shin guards in a wide variety of modifications.
Shin Guards Material
As with any other outfit, the shin guards material is of particular importance.
Natural materials (e.g. leather) are of prime importance here, as they are the most practical and long-lasting.
In addition, leather is guaranteed safe (in particular - does not cause allergies and skin irritations).
Another good option is the microfiber, which has the same characteristics as the leather.
Some shin guards can be made of polyester, which is a durable and reliable material that is recognised as safe for human health.
For the padding material, we recommend a multilayer foam cushioning material (EVA foam). Many manufacturers make their pads out of carbon, it's the most reliable option, which provides an excellent protection parameter.
The stocking-type protection can be made of cotton, it's a time-tested material, and most importantly, it guarantees a pleasant tactile sensation.
Shin Guards Size
Another criteria is size. In most cases, shin protection is selected based on height and the following proportions:
- height up to 157 cm - size S;
- 157-175 cm - size M;
- 175-185 cm - size L;
- over 185 cm - size XL.
