Mti Martial Arts Gear

MTI martial arts gear are made by a company known for quality protective sparring and competition equipment. The MTI brand has been worn by masters and students of many martial arts. They are perfect for those training to become the best in tae kwon do, kung fu, karate, or any number of combative arts.

Most MTI martial arts gear contains headgear, footgear, shin guards and gloves. They are all made from a dipped foam that is 1/2 to 3/4 inch deep, protecting the skin and bones from any dangerous force given by a punch or kick. Headgear can be purchased with up to 1 inch of protective foam padding, keeping excessive energy from knocking the brain around in the skull.

Measuring Yourself for MTI Martial Arts Gear

It is very important to measure your body in order to choose the right size gear, whether you are purchasing MTI headgear or buying a series of MTI sparring sets for your school. Headgear should be based on the head circumference, footgear by the traditional measurement or by the length from the heel to the toe, and punching gear by the distance across knuckles. Bring this information to a local martial arts store or contact an online supply source, and you're in business.

You may question why one should spend hard-earned money on sparring gear, especially if someone is supposed to become a master in the martial art he chooses. However, even champions of martial arts wear protective gear during training, warm ups, and even during tournament fighting. After all, who wants to endure potentially permanent damage or even death while enjoying their art? It is better to protect oneself and leave the danger to actual self defense.

New Book/Product/Distribution

Hi,

My name is Andrew Ahlsten and I am a Karate practitioner. I am a clinical Kinesiologist and I am a 3rd Degree Black Belt with the JKA. I emailing you to let you know I have just finished writing a book and I am very excited it has been released! It is called Bridging the Gap: Introducing Science and Conditioning to the Art of Karate.

We are currently living in a very exciting time to be participating in high-performance sports! How amazing athletes are training today, is much different than before. My book is designed to assist Karate athletes who want to take their performance and training to the next level.

My book is about, as the title suggests: Bridging the Gap… Bringing together Tradition of the Art, and Science of the Sport… for Karate specifically.

The book has been described as “brilliant and inspirational!”… Scientific from all aspects of performance!”. -AKG

Your body’s muscles must work together as a team:

“The body and its movements are very detailed: It is a machine of motion. Each muscle must fire in a particular order to be as efficient as possible, and as powerful as possible. This will give the opportunity to have maximal force and the most rapid activation”.

I have never seen a book written, quite in this nature before. It is my goal to spread the word, which only athletes on the cutting-edge of their training, are currently implementing.

The book has been designed to be very visual. It has over 110 coloured photos inside the text. It has 120 pages, including examples from all styles, backgrounds and ages. The size of the book is 11 x 18 inches. It’s available on Trafford.com, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

I am getting the word out there: I would like to know if you would be interested in making my book available in your store? I want to make it a win-win: I know there will be profit for you to be made.

Please feel free to email me back.

I look forward to hearing from you!
