Most martial artists use the standard gum shields, that do offer some protection but are more there to help against the odd knock or bump. This Powrgard Gum Shield ramps up the impact and will help protect your teeth during full contact sparring.
This gum shield is one you mould yourself, simply put in boiling water for 10 second, pull out and mold to your teeth. This gives a unique fit to your teeth and regardless of any misalignment or misshapen teeth it will fit perfectly. Having a snug fit gives the best protection the gum shield can offer.
The Powrgard gum shield has a small notch in the front that helps with breathing, and the well designed plastic has built in shock absorbers to help with those heavy impacts you ‘should’ be avoiding. This is one of the best single layer gum shields out there
“As with all moulding gum shields, it is a weird sensation putting the hot plastic in your mouth. Shake off the drips first and put it straight in. That’s the way to get the best fit. Don’t bite too hard and don’t burn yourself.”
Doug Swift – Owner of Enso Martial Arts

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:
