What is the interest of sports equipment?: French boxing: essential accessories
French boxing equipment serves mainly to have good protection when hitting the opponent, making a wide kick and a light blow without hurting yourself.
But it also aims to protect the opponent. In fact, the gloves distribute the impact of the blow, the helmet protects the skull while the shin guards prevent bruises related to leg-to-leg blows. Accessories made of padded material will soften bumps and prevent open wounds.
