    Top Ten has a pretty nice full face one: http://www.toptencanada.com/store/sh...m=17&subitem=0

    I'v never worn it myself but I use their regular headgear when sparring and its top notch stuff.

    First of all a solid fist/elbow hit on the cage makes up a good feeling even through the cage.
    that isnt the point, you arent being hit in the face. being hit in the cage thats covering your face=/=getting one in the nose and having your eyes water up. you need to know what that is like otherwise when it does happen you are unprepared

    Secondly I think there should be a difference between keeping training real and getting your face mashed up every time you do full contact sparring.
    very few full contact fighters do full contact sparring. save that **** for the ring, it isnt neccessary and one of two things happens-

    1)you spend all your time in the ER
    2)you develop into a hermit crab and do nothing during sparring but shell up

    Do you only use the front-open boxing headgear you have on your video?

    um not sure if this was directed at me since we dont use headgear in fights in this country

    I wish I could send little electric shocks through the internet to zap someone every time they say "full contact sparring". There's no such thing. Stop saying it.

    Although the terms are generally understood by people who know what they're talking about, wouldn't it be easier for newbies/idiots if "contact" was replaced with "intensity", i.e. medium-intensity sparring, full-intensity sparring, etc.

    It's kinda like the armbar-kneebar terminology problem. ****, there's a term for this kind of terminology mixup, I just can't think of it at the moment.

    For amateur MT competition...

    ...requiring headgear, I like Top Ten. It is not very cumbersome, doesn't impede vision too much, and stays put for the most part in the clinch. It doesn't do much to reduce impact, but will prevent cuts above the eye in most cases.

    You're right, sorry, I confused your video with someone else's... Thanks for your views on the use of headgear.

    I don't like Top Ten headgear because it's ugly

    I have a confession to make.

    I bought my headgear cause it matched the color of my gloves.
