Tournament season is coming soon! Recently, more tournaments have begun to require competitors to wear shin & instep pads when sparring. These tournaments will typically have some pads there that can be borrowed, but it’s good to get used to wearing them, so we recommend that students who are going to tournaments buy their own. Note that the pads must be WKF-approved for use at the tournaments we go to. You’ll want to get two pairs: one red and one blue. One place that carries them is kungfu4less.
