    What did you expect? You ask a question about a rib protector on a forum where protective gear consists of a mouth piece and gloves (and maybe a groin cup).

    I don't play around and put my balls in danger ... I always wear a cup when I KNOW I am gonna be kicked/punched/grappled .

    But some good boxing head gear would be nice to own , I won't lie .

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    mehicano headgear, good tradeoff of lameness and protection.

    Have you actually HEARD of one of those clear face-plates breaking,
    or are you just assuming it can happen?

    Agreed, although I've known some people that don't. A former instructor told me that he knew a couple of KK practioners that are sterile because they took some hard, albeit accidental groin shots. They had no idea until a visit to a fertility clinic after failed attempts to start a family.

    That stuff looks pretty flimsy. It's used for light contact competitions.

    If you are that afraid of a black eye, wear a metal cage on boxing headgear.

    If you want to protect your ribs...get a TKD chest protector or MT coach's chest protector, more widely available.

    However, what you really ought to do is tell your sparring partners you don't want to spar hard if you don't want to spar hard...

    The irony is that the arts that hit the least hard often have the most protective equipment.
