You only get one head (keep your cheeky jokes to yourself!), protect it and everything in it! Headgear protects your brain and the bones of your face from your sparring partners’ strikes. If you compete at the amateur level, you will most likely need to wear some sort of approved head protection. Basically, if you care at all about your brain or your good looks, you absolutely MUST invest in some high-quality headgear. If it’s high-quality you’re looking for, you can expect to find it in anything manufactured by Twins Special. They’ve been at it for over sixty years; they’ve basically written the book on what it takes to produce quality Muay Thai equipment and apparel. They have a full line of headgear to fit any possible niche in the “protect yo dome” market. If it’s minimal coverage you’re looking for, whether for competition or comfort, check out their basic headgear with cheek protection. From there, there are multiple levels of coverage and protection all the way up to their Facesaver headgear with enclosed chin. This piece is like the Volvo of headgear. The Facesaver boasts a full steel skeleton that protects the facial region from serious damage. It also has a fully enclosed, padded chin, which really comes into its own when you consider the multitude of upward angled strikes in the Muay Thai arsenal. Getting caught with a knee, even one thrown at half power, on the chin can cause serious damage, either from blunt force trauma or via cuts. Getting cut or concussed in camp for a fight will put you out of commission, and you definitely don’t want that, do you? Please, do us all a favor and invest some money in a quality set of headgear, no one wants you drooling on them after you’ve taken a few too many shots to the head. Get your Twins headgear at MMA Industries, your brain will thank you.
