    Sparring with racquetball goggles?

    I've got an abrasion on the surface of my eye and can't allow myself to get hit there for a while. I'm thinking about wearing racquetball goggles while sparring. Anyone foresee any problems with this?

    I don't see any problems with it. I've got a set I was going to use for a stickfighting exhibition. I'd use them if I had the same problem, but I'm not a doctor.

    Depending on how they sit on your nose, be careful the bridge doesn't push/shift your nose out of joint.

    At my escima club we use safety glasses when doing light stick work or knife work. Close fitting goggles should be fine.

    But yes, you will look like a dork.

    Update: The glasses make me look like a dork.

    I tried them tonight. The bridge is padded enough that I'm not too concerned about it. The problem is the plastic around the outside rim of the goggles. It's thin enough that I'm pretty sure that sooner or later a hard punch to the face will case them to split my brow. I'll keep wearing them for low to medium contact sparring, but full contact with them on is probably a bad idea.

    In my CQC club, we use hockey gear for sparring. I recommend people by the helmets with lexan visors because they can be used for empty hand, training knife, stick and air-soft gun training. The other nice thing about hockey helmets is that if you get whacked in the head with a stick, it is rather loud so you can't pretend you didn't get hit in the head.

    I know a few WC guys who use them to practice their "bil jee" finger thrusts to the eyes.
