MMA Sparring Gloves
When it comes to training and sparring, there are few things that are more important than the quality of your sparring gloves. The difference between a good pair of MMA gloves and a bad pair can mean the difference between a great workout and painful injuries that are difficult to recover from. Our extensive selection of MMA training gloves has something to suit everyone, from beginner to experienced fighters.
MMA gloves are different from boxing gloves in that they are designed specifically for striking and facilitate grappling. They are smaller and have open fingers to allow for gripping. Often, fighters will use MMA gloves for bag work, partner drills and other striking exercises.
While many people assume that a punch with a glove is much harder than one with bare knuckles, it’s not always the case. In fact, a punch with bare knuckles may carry more damage because the force is distributed over a larger surface area. Boxing gloves, on the other hand, are thicker and protect the fighter’s knuckles by absorbing the shock from impact.
Boxing gloves also feature more rounded fingers to keep the fist more natural and make it easier to punch with proper hand alignment. The gloves are also made to be more flexible to enable the grabbing techniques used in Muay Thai fighting. Some brands even remove the grip bar on the palm of the glove to further free up the palm for grabbing. Gants mma sparring
