I have Rev Gear brand head gear. Lots of adjustability and it does not move around on my head much at all. If you catch one the right way obviously it will get turned but if you are sparring you can just back up and adjust it. Honestly I can make mine so tight that after a round or two it squeezes my head to much.
Most people don’t like headgear and I understand. I prefer to use it when sparring hard because I don’t want to be talking about lipton cup of soup and oreo cookies for no reason someday. On the flip side of that it is good to take some shots sometimes too and headgear actally gives you less room to slip.[/quote]
Completely agree with you and I actually enjoy taking a nice solid shot. It sounds weird but after getting my bell rung I know that I can take it and it helps build my confidence. On that same note I am not much of a technical boxer. I kind of wade in and am willing to trade shots hoping my shots are bigger and I hurt you more than you hurt me.
Again the big issue is that as a police officer my boss doesn’t believe that I am portraying the professional image that the department wants walking around with a black eye all the time,3 in 5 months. I understand that and hopefully quality headgear will help me out. I am also going to learn how to slip a little more
