Despite being an older manufacturer, King Professional is still setting new benchmarks for durability, safety, and comfort in the world of Muay Thai fight gear. What you can expect when you put on a pair of King Professional gloves or strap into a pair of Muay Thai shin guards is the highest level of comfort with a strict adherence to the necessary standards of safety and protection. This is something that the people at King pride themselves on; they know that, all things being equal, you are more likely to want to wear a more comfortable piece of gear. This is why the professionals at King still painstakingly assemble their products by hand, ensuring that each piece of equipment upholds the stringent standards for safety and comfort that the company has been built upon. In addition to their wonderfully comfortable gloves, King Professional makes one of our favorite pair of shin guards around. Instead of constructing a shin guard with uniform padding all around, King uses extra padding around the areas that are most vulnerable to damage during a grueling Muay Thai sparring session or a brutal fight. This may seem like an insignificant detail, but the first time you clash shins with your opponent, and he winces and you don’t, you’ll be thankful you’re the one wearing King shin guards. In addition to this, King has done away with pesky metal buckles that can injure your sparring partner or opponent. Whose idea was it to put metal buckles on a shin guard, anyway? You ever try buckling a pair while already gloved up? Regardless of whose idea it was, we applaud King for bucking tradition and going with the safer, easier, and more comfortable Velcro option.
