    Taekwondo gear?

    I was just wondering what all WTF Taekwondo practitioners use as their sparring gear on this forum? I need a new set of sparring gear, and I'd like some suggestions. I'm kind of leaning towards Mooto, but I'd like some input first. I'd appreciate any comments, thanks!

    Mooto Hogu's are too bulky.

    The only hogu I've used that has allowed me free movement is Adidas. All the other ones I've used gets in the way of my kicks.

    Well, I know what I might get for my Hogu then. Any inputs on the foot protectors and such? I've used the Mooto ones, and they're extremely thing, and slipped off too easily.

    Personally I think addidas has the best tkd equipment on the market.

    *edit; apparently my other post didn't take. I like tiger claws hogus the best. They offer the best protection and I use them for our san shou fighters.

    I have really been impressed with Vision products. I am waiting for them to get back to me about an actual website for their company, but for now you can look at www.mykick.com to see some of their products.

    Thanks for all the information guys, I appreciate it. I might check out Adidas. I used a Vision hogu and it just restricted my movement. Couldn't get a crescent kick up. Lol.
