Your options boil down to:

Almost everything gets noticeably damaged after getting wailed on enough. Unless you wanna start getting into some deep shit with molding polycarbonate or experiencing the pure rage that is fiberglass, shit's eventually gonna break when it gets hit.
Unless you're using joints/seams in whatever you're making, EVA can be surprisingly resilient, btw.>>9788725>do people regularly get hospitalized with broken bones or equivalent level of injuries?
Barely related, but the light-contact games I play in experience far more injuries per capita than my HEMA group.
