If you've ever experienced a knee to the chest or a strike to the abdomen, you can appreciate the importance of
using a Body Shield. Not only are these injuries uncomfortable, they are dangerous as well and can
interfere with your game
plan, sometimes for life!
Just ask Cal Worsham. In UFC 9, he was the victim of one of the most life threatening injuries that have
ever occured in the ring. Opponent Zane Frasier, got to Worsham with a knee to the chest that broke Worsham's ribs
and collapsed his lungs. It also damaged his heart. Once he was backstaged, he collapsed and spent a week in the hospital
where at one time his chances of survival were questionable.
Protecting the chest area is nothing new. Knights in Shining Armour used them back in the day. There were
many types and sizes that were made from various materials like metal, leather or wood. Whether jousting or in a heated
battle, these men of old knew to protect thier chest area or else.
A Body Shield can make your life much more comfortable and possibly can make your life longer as well!
