Good solid gaurds ....... February 5, 2018
Reviewer: Stephen Matthews from Denver, CO United States  
Very nicely made. They are perfect for the singlesticks I just purchased. I put one on and whacked my arm a few times and they take the punishment.

Great guards. Good for kenjutsu. December 20, 2017
Reviewer: Brandon Haydon from Chicago, IL United States  
I cross train in armizare and kenjutsu,  with regular full contact about using wood, spring steel, nylon, and polypropylene weapons.  These guards work perfectly in tandem with HEMA hand protectors,  and the elbow guards stay in place and don’t chafe. Highly recommended,  especially for kendo/kenjutsu practitioners who want some full contact sparring without tearing up their expensive bogu or yoroi.

Well worth the money December 19, 2017
Reviewer: Hartley Ransom-Leland from Lutherville, MD United States  
For what I was expecting I would give it a five out of five. For what it is, a four out of five. It is splinted and has strips of hard plastic on the outside with condensed fabric or foam on the part that touches your arm to provide extra cushion. It fits on the arm very well. Any size arm will fit in it. The elbow cap has no padding and is just plastic. Both parts hold up very well in combat and should last a long time. My only complaint is that it is a little bulky and restricts movement when wearing gauntlets or other arm protection. I would recommend this to anyone but maybe a more experienced fighter would want to go for something lighter. The elbows can double as knees too. A very good purchase, Purple Heart Armory and Spes have never disappointed
