Finally ! 
A state legislative commission has investigated, reviewed, and passed a needed standard for effective oral appliance/mouth guard design, functionality, and effectiveness for their state’s aspiring amateur fighters, and the up-and- coming MMA/NHB style of ring/cage competition.

Former boxing veteran and Georgia Amateur Boxing & Amateur MMA Commissioner Andy Foster(now residing over California’s Amateur Boxing & MMA Commission) has been a driving force in getting effective guard designs approved and inferior designs away from the sport he has participated in, and now oversees in California.

“I used Brain-Pad(dual-arch) design in all my fights. I love it. I think its a great piece of safety equipment.

It’s approved to be used.”.

Currently, mouth guards are the only piece of protective equipment that have no national standards implemented for quality, effectiveness of design, nor impact absorptive thresholds or ratings regarding impact energy reduction and oral/facial protection.
