    How do the lacrosse gloves work for you? Any particular brand you have found that are better then others? I have found some relatively inexpensive pairs online and have been thinking about getting a pair for sparring.

    Lacrosse ones are pretty standard. Tips of the fingers and the side of the wrist tend to be your tender areas on that one.

    I've been looking at these for a while. I would like to know how good they are compared to say lacrosse or hockey gloves.

    Well, you can't integrate your grappling with your stickwork then.

    Lacrosse gloves, modified lacrosse helmet with extra bars welded on, as the unaltered mask's bars are wide enough to let a stick through.

    They are VERY good at protecting your hands...but yeah, stickgrappling is right out. And they feel...off...until you get used to it. That might just be me, though.

    Yeah, I didn't even think about that. But I'm in the infant stages of stick fighting.

    Anybody know how kendo "man"/helmets hold up against sticks? How bout the gloves? The mitten-like hands of the glove seem like they'd be limiting but they do have an open palm which is good for grip, but the wrist protection of the gloves may limit flexibility. I don't know i'm just trying to work with what i've got without spending money.

    Kendo armor is built to defend against a shinai, so in terms of protection, it's got you covered, figuratively and literally.

    As for flexibility, well, if you've got the gloves already, try them out. See if they impair your ability to do strikes, or better yet, try doing a double sinawali and see if they get in your way.

    I'll try it out and post what happens. I was mainly wondering if the face cage of the kendo helmet will bend or break from a strong strike to the face. The kendo shinai can flex and bend some when striking a kendo helmet to dissipate force. An escrima stick on the other hand dosen't have much give, so i'm wondering if the impact from the stick would wear out the kendo helment over time.
