My favourite parts of these pads

Odourless material – I mean seriously this is so important in the world of martial arts and MMA., because lets be honest in hard training we always sweat a lot. But these Fairtex Thai pads are made with anti-bacterial materials that significaftx-2135_black_003_grande_MMA_UFC_Thai Pads Fairtex Review MMAGatewayntly reduce odour and the rick of infection.

The cushioning – its really thick, there is extra padding for additional forearm support, and extra padding inside which increases the durability further. Not only is this better for your coach holding the pads, but its also better for you throwing heavy strikes. Because thin cushioning on cheaper Thai pads can result in a serious injury for you or your training partner/coach which benefits nobody.

They are so light – You look at them and think to yourself well they must be really heavy as they are large in size, but actually when you try them on, you will realise how light they are. This is great for the trainer and fighter, because it means you can switch between a variety of high volume striking techniques because these Fairtex KPLS2 Superior Thai Pads are so easy to move around.

Fairtex bringing Muay Thai quality since 1971

ftx-2135_black_004__MMA_UFC_Thai Pads Fairtex Review MMAGatewayFairtex is a highly respected company in the industry of martial arts equipment, particularly with regards to Muay Thai, because all of their gear is for the improvement of Muay Thai technique.

The company was founded by Philip Wong, who practised Muay Thai as a serious hobby. Fairtex became the number one brand in Thailand and Mr. Wong, as with any true martial artist wanted to give back to the Thailand community.

His vision to give back was realised through the Fairtex Muay Thai camp in rural Bangplee, which he built 25km outside of Bangkok. Fairtex has been consistently assisting young Thai men to stay off the streets, stay off drugs and build a life of honour and worth through Muay Thai.

Many of the innovative creations found in Fairtex’s products, are a direct result of testing products for decades in the now world famous Bangplee camp.

  1. Hey Marley, looks like a nice product! Eventually I’d like to start building my equipment stockpile up and this is something I’ll definitely consider. I’ve enjoyed MMA, and really enjoyed the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP), where I earned Brown Belt. Mostly Krav Maga based, with some BJJ and a few other styles. I mildly continued in Krav Maga locally where I live, but the training dropped off. Man, I really want to get back in to it. I’m no practitioner by any means, but I greatly appreciate knowing what I know. What equipment would you recommend for Krav Maga? The Mrs. would most likely end up on the other end of the pads, she’s petite but not dainty. Anything that would keep her holding the pads is a plus. Thanks much!

    • Hey Kody, sounds like you know your martial arts which i appreciate in anybody. I’m not sure what would be the best training equipment for Krav Maga, but I can bet that this will help you get into fight shape. Its likely taht your partner will love this too 🙂

      Thanks for dropping by!

  2. I don’t feel them being $199 is too pricey actually, I think it’s more of a small “investment” anyway. I think most people shouldn’t have a problem with investing in their own self-improvement. Also, when you do review the focus pads in the future, it’d be awesome to link us to the article from here. Thanks for the good info Marley.
