Like any martial art, the art of the sword brings with it a host of bumps and bruises. Made from the same high-quality leather and stitch construction as our Swordplay Gloves, these gloves have added, flexible foam along the back of the fingers, thumb, hand and wrist. We have chosen a foam that, while dense, is not as stiff as that found in other gloves and therefore should not restrict mobility where you need it. Our Padded Swordsman’s Glove is designed to help protect against light blows and controlled sparring with light weapons.

How to measure for size:
Using a soft tape measure or string measure the circumference of your head, and make sure to keep it sung or else you’ll wind up with a mask that’s too large. Keep in mind, a correctly fitting mask will feel quite snug in the beginning. It is crucial that in order to protect you properly he mask fit snugly so that it does not move on your head with impact. If you have particularly thick hair you may want to go up a size to allow for comfort. As you wear it, the fabric cradle that holds the forehead and chin will as it mold to your head shape. In addition, the metal frame. fabric covered flap that extends from the top of the mask can be bent in different place to better fit your head. PLEASE NOTE: due to the nature of masks fitting so close to the face they are not eligible for exchange or return.
