Fencing:  Especially suitable for Fencing Masters while training students. Great for your students to gain confidence.  Many Fencing schools and studios insist Master Guard is worn by all male fencers, and Master Guard is approved for competition use.  Pair this with the FoilGuard, required in Foil fencing.  

Used in many other sports and activities where chest protection is desired, eg Paintball.
