Whenever you hold the kick pads or strike shields targets always make sure you hold them firmly with two hands and make sure you are prepared to take some serious impact if you are holding the target for a big hitter. Never hold the target near your head for when it flies back and also you have to be very wary of inaccurate strikers, so it is good not to get in the way of accidentally friendly fire. Holding the target to the side of your body with your shoulder behind it is generally much safer.
When holding the kick pads, kickboxing coaches often like to wear one of the body guard protector targets which are also available at Universal Self Defence.
