We used these at a martial arts school I used to go, and since we did
full-contact sparring people certainly got dumped on them a lot. They worked
very well, although the drawback was that relatively few people at that
school knew how to fall correctly, compared with other schools I've
attended. On the other hand, fewer injuries. For SCA combat, I think the
good aspects would outweigh the bad aspects more.
