    aim to hit with the middle two knuckles, most breaks happen when mr. pinky knuckle is caught all by himself.

    Re: Boxing gloves screw up your fist?

    Originally posted by Shumagorath
    Last night my friend was telling me about some of the people he used to train Muay Thai with out in Calgary, and how one of the competitors got in a street fight. He said that the fighter took down his attacker in one shot, but while breaking the guy's face he also broke his hand. My friend also says that boxing gloves screwed up the way he held his own hands while fighting without them, so his fists were no longer properly closed until he actively corrected it.


    Has anyone else found that training with wraps/tape/boxing gloves on your hands messes up their natural fist after awhile? What about grip bars on MMA gloves?


    I have a pair of 14oz gloves and closed-palm/grip bar MMA gloves. I intend to do bagwork with wraps only. The bag is 75lbs-100lbs and made of canvas and sand.
    Some of the bones in the face and especially the skull are pretty dense.

    This is why it is important to train specific targets rather than targeting "the head".

    I said this before and I'll say it again...hitting with wraps and/or gloves all the time is like training with a hogu; you start to feel safe and develop habits that may be to your undoing eventually.
    IOW: hit the bag without gloves to remind yourself what real fighting is all about or suffer the consequences.

    Or be like CT and do safeboy grappling. ;)

    Green and Blue are the easiest bones to break. The jaw when not flexed and hit from the side can be effective but causes more risk to your hand. These are examples of the specific targets Mike Reese alluded to. The forehead is incredibly hard and makes a lousy target.

    You can also add wraps is you are a HEAVY puncher.
    Bare knuckle striking can be done for the last couple of rounds as conditioning.
    Your wrists, hands and the little bones in your hands, will thank you in the long run.

    You're also not in a position to give advice either way.
