    Closed-face headgear, mouthguard, cup, heavy gloves (or open fingers if you're REALLY that into it).

    I don't think that less is necessarily more "realistic". Let's get off it guys, we're all capable of the basic kick to the groin, gouge out the eyes, etc. etc. etc. crap. No matter how "street" we want to be, we're also training for fights that go longer than 20 seconds. There's nothing wrong with wanting to protect parts of your body that need it.

    Do you guys practice with elbows and knees? I'm thinking of getting at least elbow pads (maybe knees too, depending on how often I want to go at it) when I start sparring soon...

    I don't think anyone should ever SPAR with elbows or knees. They come out quick so they're not hard to use or connect with, and even one elbow/knee to the head is going to rattle the brain around alittle too much.

    If you want to train elbow or knee techniques on an opponent, I would suggest only doing so with a trainer wearing Thai pads (those rectangular forearm ones). I don't recommend using elbows or knees during "regular" sparring.

    Disagree 8t88,

    I think knees and elbows are fine, or at least knees and forearms: but hitting withthe tip of the elbow is the easiest way to cause cuts, so in sparring this may not be a good idea.

    But knees are necessary, with the possibility of forearms in sparring.

    Knees yes, elbows no. I don't want to fracture someone's maxilla with a casual elbow. Elbows are fairly easily trained, the mechanics are very intuitive. The risks outweight the gains.

    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    I'd recomend thai shin pads, that way you can get somewhat used to full force thai kicks.....I don't believe you need a chest protector....Jus t keep in mind that if you're injured you can't train.

    Absorb what is useful reject what is useless.

    Second the shin pads. Fairtex makes good shin pads.

    Knee strikes to the body are fine. Knee and elbow strikes to the head during regular sparring will leave you prone to serious head injuries hardly conduicive to training.

    Also if your wearing cups strikes to the groin are acceptable. We don't allow that in my school until your purple belt in my school.

    Yeah, I've always wondered about that. How much protection do cups offer?
