    Adapting to gloves

    Adapting the xingyi five fists to kickboxing. Havering trouble getting the pi chuan movement and heung chuan to boxing gloves and kickboxing sparring. Is this something you just get used to or do you have to make changes to make it work

    Interesting. I've been having a similar problem in reverse. After almost a year of 14oz Muay Thai gloves, I'm trying to get used to MMA gloves. Blocking is harder now.

    Different blocking. Slightly different punching. Outfight more and throw mostly 3 punch combinations rather than long strings.

    Could you explain the reasoning behind that?

    Bigger gloves allow more protection so you can stand in the pocket and trade a bit more rather than deal with the risk of being knocked out with smaller gloves. They just hit more often and have more effect. The theory is you can't throw shots into someone's defence because eventually you can eat one back and that can be the end of you.

    And also grappling if you are throwing long strings of strikes you are not defending the takedown.

    The rules change if you are smashing their face in with those punches. Then you can go as long as you want.

    Thanks greg!

    I was always under the impression that gloves were there to protect the hand that was punching, not the face that was being punched.

    Kinda like how people think mouthguards protect your teeth when they're actually there to protect your brain.

    I think that relates to the 70s rolled leather ones not modern mma gloves and certainly not 16 ounce boxing gloves.
