Those knee pads are good but they wears out very easily when you want to do some knee slap or diagonal knee strike for example. Besides that, they look durable but I don't think I'll wear them much so can't say for sure. If you plan on doing direct knee strike only, they're perfect for you but besides that, wait for something more stable.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
The striking surface is made of leather, the foam padding is on the inside mostly protecting the knee rather than the opponent. They are not completely hard, there will be some give, but soft would be an exaggeration.
