Updated: September 2019
In this guide, you’ll learn how to choose the best Muay Thai pads for training at home, fitness, personal training, professional pad holding or kickboxing.

If you’re training clients every week, you’ll need a pad that is comfortable to wear especially for your elbow, wrist and forearm. Light and fast pads are ideal for training clients if you’re a personal trainer / fitness coach.
We don’t recommend buying a cheap pad with a straight block of foam, it will just cause injuries and jarring. Also, never use a focus pad for kickboxing or knees.
Always buy a Thai pad that comes with a control bar at the back as well as quality Hook and Loop straps.
