MMA Shin Guards
Having MMA Shin Guards are an essential requirement for you to properly train whether you are a beginner or a pro. Having a high-quality pair of Shin Guards are needed so you can protect your ankles, feet and of course your shins while kicking. It’s important that you invest in some MMA Shin Guards especially if you are a beginner because it is very likely that your shins aren’t conditioned. Also, you will probably need to invest in some thicker Shin Guards (not slip ons) to get that extra protection and so you aren’t constantly getting shin injuries. You may hear that it is good to try condition your shins but it’s best to save that for when you are practising on a bag and not for sparring/kicking a partner.

History of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) is a full-contact combat sport that allows both striking and grappling (stand-up and ground fighting), using techniques from a range of combat sports and martial arts. In the early 20th century, a lot of mixed-style contests in Japan, Taiwan and other Asian countries took place. In Brazil, there was the sport of ‘Vale Tudo’, where fighters from different styles of martial arts fought with little to no rules. The Gracie Family was known to promote Vale Tudo matches as a method of spreading the awareness of their own Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu style. In 1993, the Gracie family brought Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, developed in Brazil from the 1920s, to the USA by founding the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Originally promoted as a competition to find the best martial arts for unarmed combat, competitors from different fighting styles were pitted against one another in contests with a few rules.
