The Kanpeki Elite Series represents a true unrivaled fusion of old world tradition and new world scientific discovery. Witness the exquisite full grain premium leather that adorns each hand-designed and artisan-crafted element of this elite combat grappling shin guard. The traditional look and feel is but a veneer for the underlying scientifically conceived and tested design. The fully breathable fullback design keeps the guard comfortably tight to your shin, giving you the stability to strike with accuracy knowing the guard will never shift. The elite-level padding ensures the shin guards never bottom out. Whatsmore, the generously added ridges and in-step areas protect you from injury in never-before-seen fashion.
