    knee pads

    Sorry, I was not sure which forum was best for this, but it does involve the health of my knee, plus I know this thread is usually quite active. Anyway, I have Osgood Schlatter's disease in my left knee, nothing serious however I should be growing out of it by now. Nothing bothers me about the joint itself but the calcium growth that sticks out of my knee is very sensitive and I need something with a lot of padding for take downs. Even sitting on my knees in guard is uncomfortable. The Combat Sports Drop step knee pad is on sale and I was considering getting it. If anyone has any recommendations let me know, again I need something with good padding that doesn't slide down my leg.

    I've known a few people who have used volleyball kneepads for grappling. You might look into that, but if Combat Sports makes one and it's on sale, you should probably go with that. You might even consider something beefier as long as it doesn't hinder movement or grappling.

    Sucks about the Osgood Schlatter's. My brother used to have that, and if we were fighting I'd grip his kneecap hard, in a move I called the Osgood Slaughter. He was way bigger than me so sometimes I needed an ace up my sleeve.

    It's pretty beat up, but it is a complete copy....

    You could put a firm padded ring around the calcium growth under a knee pad. Then the pressure can go around the sore area. I wear construction grade knee protectors for any knee to floor work, but my floor is a wooden deck or concrete.

    the firm padded ring idea actually seems like it would help a lot, not sure what i'll use for it though. I don't think I'd wanna do much wrestling on concrete

    You need the ring under ANY knee pad you get. You will always have pressure pushing on your sensitive spot, even under a pad, IMO. The ring prevents the pad from pushing onto your sore spot. I don't know how much of your knee is sensitive though.

    They use these donut rings for tailbone injuries, but much bigger obviously. I have made very small ones for foot sores from hiking.

    check the various knee pads scholastic/collegiate wrestlers use. i have been through a few sets of different wrestling knee pads. work great for me.

    these are my favorite, but they are easy to buy them to small.
