Back in February, I got an email from the folks over at MMAOpinion.com asking if I would be interested in reviewing the KD Elite XL Curved Body Shield. Despite the fact that I havent had a lot of time to get new posts/reviews up lately, I felt I would be remiss if I passed them up. I’ve had the shield in my possession for about a month now, and I think I’m ready to share my findings with all of you.
First of all, the KD Elite XL Curved Body Shield is exactly what the name implies. It is a body shield. It is curved. And it is fairly large. This thing was meant to take your more powerful strikes – primarily kicks and knees but punches are just fine as well. Having a straightforward purpose, however, is not enough to make a good product. We need to really get down to the nitty gritty.
