I have two pair... we use these exlcusively when training MMA and getting ready for fights... not one injury with them yet. And we go hard.... my "50%" is like a rabid wolverine to most people

Friday (november 11th) I tested the gloves out . I was hesitant but it went very well.
The gloves worked for me in stand up and on the ground . I grappled hard in them and found them much easier to deal with than expected . They didnt hurt or help my game on the ground much .
During stand up I found it alot easier to stay relaxed as the punch is thrown then tighten up as or right before impact happened , it is hard for me to do this in boxing gloves . The double wrist strap must have done its job becouse I didnt notice it working or not . The gloves felt natural and held up great . No scratches on the leather but a few new creases . After laying into the body and punching his guard for a bit the gloves actually became more comfortable (even after all the bag work I had done on with them on ) . I landed a jab straight into the chin early on in the match. It felt perfect ... no wierd "rolling sensation" or a sense of "squishyness" I get from boxing gloves . It rocked him more than I expected so I toned it down a tad bit .
again another 2 thumbs up for these gloves .

to me they look just like shooto gloves.
is there anyone out there who has trained with them that has also used shooto gloves? i would like to know the differences (if any)
i buy the shooto gloves wholesale for my school, but we also have an account with CS so both gloves are about the same price."Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art.
