Right - I have been booked onto one of Mr Oxley's courses at the end of the month by my rather splendid partner. The email suggested that some armour was recommended... now I am usually averse to such things figuring that they are for middle manager types turning up at trail centres trying to look "rad". But then figured that perhaps they may make me a little more inclined to push myself a little harder and try stuff I would usually get "the fear (tm)" of so perhaps he has a point.
Now... my question is... what do I need to get? I had a look and frankly it all looked a bit StarWars and is so far off my radar that it hasn't even registered.
I was looking at the 661 Rhythm stuff on CRC as it is very, very cheap - is this what I want, or do I need to go a bit more towards the storm trooper look?
Knee armour is strongly recommended, elbows as an extra... is it worth going both?
