As a sport or physical activity, Kendo doesn’t have the popularity that basketball, running, or boxing may have. One of the benefits that popular sports enjoy is the amount of research and development of products specifically for the improvement of said sport. Therefore in Kendo we sometimes have to be resourceful and transfer knowledge from other disciplines to ours.
Research in sports mostly seeks performance improvement, recovery, injury rehabilitation, and injury prevention; All things we would all like to learn more about to improve our kendo.
Compression gear is something that has been used in sports for performance improvement, injury rehabilitation, and injury prevention.
For this article we wanted to share some items that research has shown can help prevent and support the treatment of injuries, as well as help with performance and recovery.
CEP has become a leading authority in compression gear due to their quality and extensive research in sports compression; also CEP has history in medical compression research and manufacturing. For this reason we chose CEP products to share with you.
