    knee pads

    Is there any kind of knee pad that offers a reasonable amount of padding for the person you're striking durring a match? Would volley ball pads be the best option? Are normal wrestling knee pads good for this?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I have some football kneepads that I think would probably work ok, though honestly throwing knees in sparring is not a big deal. When I spar with people we're always kneeing the crap out of eachother and I don't recall ever being particularly hurt by one.

    So long as you're not pulling down in the clinch and throwing a knee to the face I don't see why you need padding.

    Learn to take the hit, a knee to the body isn't as devastating as it sounds.

    I have a wrestling knee pad called "the wraptor" its designed to protect my knee from the impact my knee gets when it hits the ground.

    it is very durable and very cushiony.

    I dont' have a problem taking a knee. Several of my smaller sparring partners havee complained, and i would like the pad for their sake.

    i dont think having a pad is going to make a whole lot of difference to how much it hurts. i mean its a big blunt instrument. putting a small layer of padding on it is the same as wrapping a baseball bat with bubble wrap. and putting a large layer of padding on it will just **** with you. either dont throw them as hard or tell your sparring partners to man the **** up. fwiw i once had a rib broken by a knee in sparring so yeah it can be quite sore... its one of those things you have to watch out with.

    That is so weird. We always made sure to slap with the thigh just above the knee when doing plum drills. All to avoid hurting each other for fights.

    we don't let beginners use straight knees plum sparring and only let advanced guys use straight knees with caution. Im not sure why anyone would say knees to the body dont hurt that bad.

    A properly thrown straight knee will do some serious damage, if you know how to get your hips and weight into it.

    Usually when you use knees in sparring you don't try to land full force, just land with good technique. If you knee a sparring partner full force you are really just being an asshole. You have to save that **** for opponents, not sparring partners that you train with on a regular basis and respect. What is there to be gained by busting up a training partner that you respect?
    People should spar hard, but there is no sense in breaking ribs in sparring. Save it for the ring.
    And yes, a properly thrown knee can be devastating. No doubt.
