  • School Pack - Red Dragon Weapon Sparring Gloves - 5 for £243

    Please note that these gloves are designed for sparring with synthetic swords. Whilst most people deem them durable enough for controlled steel sparring, the gloves will deteriorate at a faster rate as a consequence. Red Dragon HEMA Sparring Gloves are not indestructible and are not designed to last forever. As with any other sports kit, they will deteriorate and need replacing over time. The more they are used, the faster they will deteriorate.

  • School Pack - Red Dragon HEMA Knee & Shin Protectors - 5 pairs for £175

    Offering some of the best protection and mobility on the market, our Knee and Shin Protectors are so well articulated you hardly know that you are wearing them. Unlike other leg protectors, ours articulate "with" the knee rather than restrict movement and most importantly offer side protection for the knee which is lacking on most of the protectors that are currently used. They are much less bulky than other protectors and due to their superior padding can be used for both synthetic and (blunt) steel sparring.

    Features removable padded liner that can be washed.
    Tip: People find that crossing the straps at the back give a more secure fit.
    One size only.
