I’ve been a martial artist for as long as I can remember, and I hope that I always will be one. I never really expected to see a the community get shaken up the way it has been by MMA. One thing I’ve noticed a lot lately has been good, long-term, martial artists beginning to question whether or not Traditional Martial Arts have a use, or even a future, in a world where MMA is king.

I promised that there would be more posts this month and I meant it. To follow up my review of the mouthguard last week, I was sent a pair of Combat Sports Gel Handwraps from the folks at Boxing Depot.com. Now, I am a striker by nature and by training, so this was right up my alley. Also, I’m not generally a fan of gloves or handwraps – I tend to train bare-handed (yeah yeah, I know). So it takes a lot for a product like this to impress me. That said, I was definitely impressed.
A few weeks ago the folks over at Elite MMA.com sent me another goodie to review, the Power Gel-Nano Mouthguard. Reviewing something like a mouthguard is pretty tricky, so I called in some assistance. To test this bad boy out, I had the help of Joe Cunningham of Yamasaki Woodbridge. Read on to see the verdict.
I know that December was a pretty slow month for the site. I spent a lot of time trying to get new shirts made (and this has been a success!). That said, I plan on making it up to you all this month – starting today. Not only do I have the results from UFC 108 for you here now, but later on today I will also get the first product review of the new year online. Enjoy!
