Hi guys, for starters Im not a Filipino martial arts practitioner. I practice Mau Rakau and I'm currently looking for a helmet that can withstand blows to head from padded rakau (similar to a bo staff). Here is an example of sparring; Skip to 2:09 [ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOi-cbQSXyk"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOi-cbQSXyk[/ame] At the moment I'm having trouble finding anything on Ebay. And I'm not sure what kind of brands I should be looking at. I've tried using a hockey helmet with a metal face shield in the past but the plastic wasn't strong enough to withstand the blows and cracked. I think the helmets used in Filipino martial arts should be strong enough, the other option is Kendo helmets. Ideally I need something that will protect all sides of the head as well as the top.
