    + Strong hands and wrists help enormously. Maybe some work in that area is warranted.

    We did some bare knuckle last night on the bags for Muay Thai (well the other two guys had MMA gloves, I was bare knuckle). Had no problem with hitting the bag with force.

    I also no longer get hurt wrists with the gloves. Seemed to just happen for a litlte under a week.
