Knee Pad for Judo?

I will get back to judo and I knee a good knee pad to protect my knee due to my 2 knee suegeries I had in the last year, any suggestion ?

Ask your doctor.

I would suggest the Asics wrestling knee pads.

That got my attention. I used knee pads when I wrestled and when I played Judo, twenty-thirty years ago. When I went back to Judo, they didn’t seem as important, nor as useful.

But I hadn’t looked at the new ones.

Asics really has some improved stuff out there now.

Used it for a while after i pulled my acl or whatever the american term for it is. Works great.

Doesnt look like much, but you’d be suprised.
