About the Visibility Modification
I am not mechanically inclined and to ensure success on this I watched a lot of YouTube and stayed at a Holiday Inn Express the night before which pretty much made me a subject matter expert.
I first taped off everything in the ends that I didn’t want cut, pro tip, tape as much of the center as possible if using a RotoZip. When you start cutting there will be black melted plastic with the consistency of sand that sticks to everything!
After making the cuts I used a file to even out the edges to make them look uniformed (first rough side, then used side that is not so rough). Then I used 150 grit sand paper to really smooth things out, my kid didn’t like the shiny looking guard and I sanded it to look a little less shiny.
The end result was a high visibility head guard with great protection... :-)
*Special Thanks to Brian Dowrick for originality posting the Modification, couldn’t have done it withou it, Thanks!!!
What it lacks, is good line of sight. The hard plastic face protector covers almost all of your peripheral vision.
I took a jig saw to it, and cut it to where the straps attach, and that opens it up a lot.
It stopped getting clocked by hooks in sparring.
If you are in a sport where only looking forward is needed, then this is perfect, but if you need to see things coming at you from all angles, this CAN be modified to accommodate that, but I’m guessing it breaks the safety specs. I used this for 2 months of intense sparring when I was on vacation, and didn’t have any cracks or breaks after modification.
Be advised, there is no chin padding, so uppercuts will not be softened by this headgear.
I was using that crap puffy TKD style and a good right cross just punched through the helmet and my jaw went CRACK and life sucked for a couple months. That gave me plenty of time to do my research. These are top notch.
The only "downside" (if you're a wimp) is that the wonderfully comfortable inner felt? lining absorbs sweat. So if you dance for 20 minutes, then sit around huffing and talking smack for a while, when you put them back on they're going to be cold and icky.
I've had two in regular play for 2 years without any failures at all- they're built to take a beating. :-)
My out of the box feelings about the head gear:
-Quite comfortable and sweat absorbent.
-Easy to put on and tighten by myself.
-Stays in place when hit or moving around even when very sweaty.
-Well cushioned around face, back of the head, and around the ears.
-Face shield significantly reduces peripheral vision on the sides, bottom, and top.
-Face shield seems over designed.
-Could use additional/thicker padding on the sides of the head.
After seeing reviews from others where they removed material from the face shield, I went to work with a hot knife, a razor knife, a few hours, and some patience.
I have attached the pictures of my modified face shield. Like others I removed material from the side of the eyes so that now the padding from the helmet is the restriction on my sideways peripheral vision rather than the plastic. I also removed the top cross face bar as it restricted my upper peripheral vision when my chin was tucked properly and also because it just seemed unnecessary. Finally, I removed the 2 vertical bars that cross in front of your mouth as they also seemed unnecessary and blocked areas of my lower peripheral vision. After cutting these areas out with the hot knife, I cleaned up all the edges so that they were smooth both for myself and my sparring partner's sake. After the modifications, the face shield still feels adequately strong but it has vastly improved peripherals.
Unfortunately, I don't think you should have to modify something so heavily to make it work well and I also think it needs more padding on the sides of the head. These are my reasons for 4 rather than 5 stars.

The head guard does allow the user to forgo a mouth guard thus allowing clear communication.
I use this headguard mostly to teach hand techniques so as to take the edge off strikes from a student with limited control, whilst being able to instruct them. Also, it is possible to throw and grapple whilst including punches when wearing this headguard.
I emphasise that this guard is only for fast light training as it deals with light contact which would othwise bruise and cut.
I use a heavier headguard for full contact.
Overall, this is a very good headguard but it's limitation mean that it is for a specific type of training.
I'd advise RDX to change the layout of the face bars so as to allow lower vision and to double the padding to the sides of the head.
These headguards help to make the training more realistic allowing to controll the opponent by striking hard with fists, palms, elbows forearms and knees while giving a great deal of protection as not to injure your training partners
These headguards are by far the best I have seen
In fact I bought 1 and tried it and within a week I have bought 4 more
A pricless training item for such a low cost to help take the training to the next level
Es ist unbedingt darauf zu achten, dass man sich die richtige Größe bestellt, da sich ein zu großer Helm bei einem Treffer auf dem Kopf dreht. Man hat bei der Größe aber einen gewissen Spielraum, da über ein Klettsystem noch etwas angepasst werden kann.
Ich persönlich nutze diesen Helm beim Krav Maga Training und muss sagen ich bin 100% zufrieden. Ein absolutes Plus ist, die extra dicke Polsterung zum Schutz der Schädeldecke.
Einige Trainingspartner haben das nicht bei ihren Helmen, obwohl die mehr als doppelt so teuer waren wie dieser hier.
Werde mir den Helm jederzeit wieder bestellen.
