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.

About a month ago, I got an email from the folks over at Elite MMA.com asking if I would be interested in reviewing the KD Elite Knee and Elbow Strike Bag.

Anyhow, I’ve seen what there is to be seen with this bag, and I’ve finally finished evaluating it.
A few weeks ago, while I was in Japan for vacation, I got an email from the folks over at Martial Arts Supplies.com asking if I would be interested in reviewing the KD Elite Double Leather Focus Target. Being a lover of free stuff, I happily agreed.

Back in October, I reviewed the ProForce Curved Plastic Rebreakable Board. Once I was finished with it, I moved on to its bigger brother, the ProForce Rebreakable Board. These boards come in multiple sizes (ranging from 1/4″ thick to 5/8″ thick), are not curved, and – thankfully – are padded, to help prevent you from tearing up your knuckles. Pictured on the left is the 3/8″ board – they are color coded for convenience. I’m going to assume at this point that you know what rebreakable boards are, and what they’re for. If not, go ahead and read my earlier review which covers those basics. Now, on to the good stuff!
