    Wrist guards?

    I thought it'd be fun to wear them for a sparring session, regardless of whether or not they do a whole lot. Anyone know where to get a decent pair? Most of what I find tend to be skiing/snowboarding/skating/bowling guards.

    You'd get laughed off the mat.

    Tape your wrists.

    The bowling and skating wrist gaurds are totally different things, btw.

      Why would you wear a pair of wristguards?

      My adivise would be to just use wraps or tape up your wrists if you really need to.

        let's not leave out the archery wrist guards option.

        or the wrist support gloves option. i mean, preventing carpal tunnel is important, right?

            I wouldn't actually need them. You're right, simply taping them would be enough. I just wanted them for looks so that when a friend of mine and I spar I could use them. Plus, I think they look bad ass for some reason ::equips flame shield::

            But in all seriousness, I don't think I'd wear them to an actual fighting event.

              No serious promoter would let you wear them to his/her fighting event.

                If you had weak girly wrists I suppose.

                Gauntlets on the other hand are a different story. They are not really "guards", they are "weapons."

                  I don't think I'm stating my point clearly. I'm not actually planing on using them any time with professional martial artists or anything. I've wanted a pair since I was a kid (growing up watching and playing Street Fighter II can do that to you) and I though Jin's looked cool in Tekken 5. Of course they don't offer you any real advantage. I just think they look cool. If I were to wear them fighting, it'd most likely be with a friend of mine. And yes, we'd probably laugh about it.

                    Spiked wrist guards. Leather ones that go all the way from wrist to elbow. Like you see in the old kung fu movies. That would be much awesome.

                      XD yeah, it would. Now to find a pair. I mean, they're such a novelty item, it's hard to even find a pair that doesn't look "out-there".

                              Wow. You know, I thought, just maybe, it'd be easily comprehendable as to why someone would want a piece of gear that doesn't actually do anything, but just to have as a novelty item or to use for fun with friends. If you don't know where to get them from, and if you aren't going to help me with advice (regardless of whether or not I already knew it), why are you posting?
