Adidas arm and shin guards are attached by hook and loop straps that allow easy adjustment when fitting, and quick attachment and removal to speed up training sessions.

They are best cleaned by using a damp cloth and mild detergent.

They come in three sizes - small, medium and large which suit most ages and size groups.

Chest guards are stocked in sizes from size 1 to size 5. Size 1 being the smallest size we have and size 5 the largest. The pad guards are covered in hard wearing man made material that is best cleaned by washing with a damp cloth and mild detergent. They should be air dried prior to storage to prolong life and prevent odors!

The guards incorporate sholder guards for protection from high kicks. They are tied at the back like a shoe or boot - which allows easy fitting to different body shapes.

They are reversible red and blue for sparring matches.

Our various brands of foot guards - Hanji, or Adidas for example fit in a similar way - like a glove for your feet! Each toe fits into its own part of the protector and then there is a hook and loop strap around the ankle that secures the guard.

Many martial artists prefer this guard because of the added protection it provides, and the closer more secure fit when compared with the more commonly used cloth shin/instep guards. 

Belts - the majority of belts we sell are specially made for us and imported directly - we do source from other supplies when we run low on a size or colour!

Our own belts are 100% cotton and of the highest quality, offering great value for money.

You should never wash your belt, as the colours will run. If you must wash it - use cold water and hand wash separately. New belts can be crushed by hand to loosen up the fabric.

Cotton v polyester/cotton mix uniform fabric

Cotton is a natural fibre and is easily washed. Cotton is a good strong fabric that is absorbent, and easy to work with. Cotton has a tendency to wrinkle very easily.  Many people prefer the year-round "breathing" and lack of pilling of one hundred percent cotton.

Cotton/polyester blends have the advantage that they do not wrinkle so easily, and are therefore easier to care for. They can also be more light weight by utilising man made fibres in combination with natural cotton. These fabrics also shrink less than 100% cotton.

More advanced materials in the higher quality uniforms are breathable, and wick moisture away from the body.

Care of guards and protective equipment

After each training session it is important that all protective equipment is wiped down and air dried to remove sweat and contaminants like blood that may have found their way onto the material. This will increase the life of your equipment, prevent possible infections, and of course prevent smells!  It's best to use mild cleaners to avoid allergic skin reactions. Cloth shin, arm,  and shin/instep guards can be washed on a gentle cycle in machines, or hand washed to freshen up. Fast spins are not recommended. If the interior padding moves during washing it can easily be pushed back into place when the guard is dry. Only air dry. Never place in a drier.

Shin guards are attached by hook and loop straps that allow easy adjustment when fitting, and quick attachment and removal to speed up training sessions.

They are best cleaned by using a damp cloth and mild detergent.

They come in three sizes - small, medium and large which suit most ages and size groups.
