Speaking of padding, does anyone know if wrist guards actually work?
And yes! They do! so much haha.
At the risk of sounding like a dork I will just go ahead and tell you that I wear butt and thigh pads, knee guards, elbow and wrist guards, and spinal protection every time i'm trying something new. (oh yeh and a helmet)
At first I felt like such a dork wearing all that crap but it's really saved me. Especially trying to throw much bigger moves with corks.
Long story short I'd recommend wrist guards as well as everything else I just mentioned
