Safety Pads/Sparring Kit
  • ​All Students require a Head guard upon promotion to Yellow Belt (10th Gup)

  • Teen-Adult students require the full Safety Pad set: Head guard, Shinguards, Hand & Foot & guards [males groin guard] upon promotion to Yellow Belt (10th Gup). Students 5 - 12 Yrs old require the full safety pad set upon promotion to Orange Belt (8th Gup).

  • All students may buy the Head guard/full set of safety pads at any grade before the required grade; We recommend that you do it as it encourages the students to increase kick height & speed, engage more in sparring and develop ballistic flexibility.

  • Students who attend the afterschool classes that add sparing at the end of the regular class are required to have the full Safety Pad set to attend the class.

  • Students may only wear red, blue, white, or black Safety Pads; please be aware that all pads are required to match.

  • You can view all pads/colours on our Kit page and can then order via the contact us form.

You are welcome to search for cheaper pads yourself from various retailers (Amazon, eBay, etc);

but Please be aware that if you buy the wrong style, colour, or size of safety pad you will not be allowed to use them. 

Only Head guards are required for all students during this Coronavirus restrictive sparring period.
