Time after time I have seen the whole sparring kit being bought as a child is now allowed to start sparring in their martial arts class and the gum shield is brushed aside as a waste of money. It’s the cheapest item you’ll buy in martial arts and if it saves just one trip to the dentist, it is well worth it. It’s important and protect teeth but also helps prevents biting their tongue.
Fittings instruction below but it is an easy process to get a perfect fit to your teeth and available in clear colour. It come with a small case to keep it in and keeps it away from all your smelly kit in your bag after training.
Be warned this is not made from some super high tech ultra smart material. It will go mouldy if you don’t wash it after each session and keep it clean.
“This gum shield is for light level sparring, it’ s more there for precaution. If you are expecting to have semi-to-full contact punches you need to buy the next level up.”

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you.
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS.
UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that.
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
