Body targets are pieces of training equipment frequently used in martial arts. They usually look like shields and are held by a partner, allowing the martial artist to practice punches, kicks, and other strikes without the risk of harming their counterpart. These targets are large enough to shield most of the body and are made from soft, cushioned materials like foam covered with leather, nylon, or vinyl. They’re available from brands like ProForce, Gladiator, and Thunder. Colors include black, blue, red, and more.
