How to Choose the Best MMA Sparring Gloves

If you’re new to MMA, you need to make sure that you have the right pair of MMA sparring gloves and other training gear. Choosing your first set of gloves should be fun, but for many people, it’s hard. They don’t know much about MMA gloves, even if they’ve already used boxing gloves. While there are some similarities, there are also some differences that you will have to know before you make your choice.

Styles

There are different styles of MMA sparring gloves on the market, and they’re not used for the same thing. You need to have more than one pair so you will have something for different training needs.

 

Bag gloves are meant for training with bags. These are tough, durable, and lightweight. These gloves are good for those who train on speed bags and speedballs, although, they can be used with a heavy bag too. They should have knuckle padding, but this will usually be thin.

 

Training gloves are similar to boxing gloves, but these are used for hitting focus mitts. They can also be used for sparring, shadow boxing, or heavy bags. Fight and grappling gloves are light and usually have minimal knuckle padding. These gloves should be able to provide the flexibility that MMA fighters need for grappling and striking. It is important that fight gloves aren’t used for sparring, as you could injure your training partner.

Sizes

Gloves are available in lots of different sizes, and you can find gloves that will fit young people and adults. When you are choosing gloves, the seller should have a site that can let you know the sizes they offer, with both the width for the wrist and the length of the gloves. It is important that you know what size your wrist is to make sure that you are buying the right sized gloves. Your gloves should be large enough to accommodate your hand and wrist wraps comfortably.

Features

There are many types of MMA gloves available, with many features between them. When you are choosing your gloves, take the time to make sure that they have some good features, like moisture-wicking gloves with high-density foam or high-quality engineered leather for effective shock absorption. Are the gloves made from good-quality materials that can pull moisture away from your hands? Do the gloves you want have easy to close but secure Velcro straps? Do they come in a style and a color that you like?

Price

When you are looking for good MMA gloves, lots of people are worried about the price. They might look for options that are cheaper, but that’s not always the best idea. Finding deals is nice, but you shouldn’t be sacrificing quality just so you can save a bit of cash on your gloves. You want to make sure that you buy decent quality, as these will last you for longer and be better suited to your training. It’s okay to spend a bit more on the gear that’s going to keep you safe and help with your training.
