Every game has variants and hockey is no different, able to entertain people in a variety of forms. But each different style of hockey requires different skills from the players, which is why the game is so interesting.
We are delighted to announce our new partnership with New Zealand Rugby League, supporting their efforts to deliver the best protection to children playing the game across the country.
Getting to such a high level and becoming a harmonious team takes huge amounts of training, hard work, and discipline. But when the competition season is over, do they take a break or is it on to the next one?
Ask any successful athlete what the key to their success is. You’re more than likely to hear the word ‘discipline’ come up at some point and for good reason.
While you can take precautions to minimise the risk of injury, the chances are if you take part, especially competitively and especially in contact sports, you’ll fall foul at some point. And, in many sports, there’s a high chance of injury to your head - including your mouth.
When you think about wrestling, you might think about your next training session and other things related to this year’s high school wrestling season. But for many people across the world, when they hear wrestling, they think WWE.
Taking part in sport has a whole host of benefits. And everyone is drawn to sport for different reasons. If we were to ask everyone their reasons for playing, the answers would all be very different.
If there’s a big game or competition around the corner, it’s easy to fall into a blind panic. The countdown is on and there’s so much you need to do in a limited amount of time.
In the UK, if we want a contact sport which involves a ball, rugby’s the one for us. But in the US, it’s all about American football. Even if you don’t watch it, everyone’s heard of the Super Bowl, right? How about the USA Sevens tournament in Las Vegas?
If you’re not familiar with the world of combat sports, weight cutting is a common weight on bringing down your weight. Why? Well, many combat sports are organised by weight class, and to fit into the right one some people resort to what we call ‘weight cutting’.
Wrestling is not an easy sport. It’s full contact and you could get hurt as with any contact sport. That’s why wearing a mouthguard is so important. It keeps those pearly whites safe. But, if you’ve got braces, can you really fit a mouthguard too?
It’s that time of year again. The high school wrestling season upon us, which means it’s your chance to improve on your performance from last year and perhaps become a champion.
An athlete has a 10% chance of getting a mouth, face, or jaw injury every season they play. While this might seem like good odds to gamble on, one injury could go on to wipe you out for a whole season. So to reduce the risk of injury, you need to find the perfect mouthguard.
Hockey is mentally demanding as much as it is physical. To move from amateur to pro level, you obviously want to improve your strength, stamina, and skill. But there’s no point in being physically competitive if your mind’s holding you back from properly competing.
Muay Thai is a combat sport that originated in Thailand in the 1500s. Known as ‘the art of eight limbs’, it’s a discipline that uses knees, elbows, fists, and shins, alongside clinching and sweeping techniques.
Whether you’re playing competitively or for fun, rugby is a challenging sport. To get in your best match shape, it can be useful to introduce strength and conditioning into your training schedule. Not only can it improve game performance but it can also reduce the risk of injury.
