    hui xiu, sounds to me like you would do well to try to get to know someone with wholesaler access to twins/windy, preferably someone in thailand.

    if you are going to be re-selling the gloves in your school, either the people who run that site you linked to (or someone else in the muay thai gear biz) should be willing to cut you a wholesale deal, at the least the shipping should be less. it pays to reach out to people about stuff like this.

    Thanks Ming, I am emailed the muaythai-fighting website, so hopefully I'll get a good deal there.

    If anyone knows any other wholesalers, let me know please.

    Anyone try the Title Gels or the Rival Pro Sparring gloves?

    I've never looked outside of Thai companies for gloves, but these two look sweet. Just picked up my 12oz Boon training gloves, but would like some 14oz sparring gloves. Leaning towards Windy right now, but if the Titles or Rivals are worth it, I'll hold off.

    Specifically, I'd like to order these:
    http://www.muaythai-fighting.com/twi...8cb7cfbbd50694

    They are the only good synthetic leather gloves I can find, but shipping to the U.S. is $30 a pair. I want to sell these at my school, but If I buy them for $75 they better be great.
    I've ordered a pair of twins specials MT gloves and some twins thai pads from these guys, quick delivery, good prices

    On a side, I've only every used synthetic leather before, any special requirements for looking after leather gloves?

    Not really the same type of glove question but it has been bugging me for some time.

    Is it significantly easier to knock someone out with mma sized gloves than boxing/muay thai gloves?

    I don't think i could knock someone out with boxing gloves at this weight bar a lucky punch so if i go to mma and its the same my striking is pretty much worthless.

    Lift some weights (olympic weightlifting/RossTraining.com are good ideas for fighters) and put on some weight. Here is an article by Ross Enamait on gaining weight as a fighter.

    And then get better technique.

    I train 2 hours a day, 6 days a week so unfortunately weights are a no-go. My technique gets better every week though, so maybe that will help. But back to the question, do glove sizes effect knock out probability? Logically it would but i did bullshido karate for years, so my logic skills probably aren't the greatest.

    i know this has been covered - in this very thread, back in 2005 - but i'm asking again:

    what mma gloves are you guys using for teens/women? i've got one lady who's maybe five feet tall and possibly 100lbs with hands... i don't know how you get five fingers on hands that small. there's a second one who's only slightly bigger. and at some point, i'm going to need gloves for them.

    specifically, i'm looking for mma sparring gloves, as well as mma style bag gloves. csi starts at regular, which is way too big. any suggestions?

    Sparring I'm not sure, but Harbinger and Valeo both make fingerless bag gloves for women, and their sizes run small even for women's sizes.

    if ouano still makes the shooto gloves, they have a small size that works well for people with small hands (they were fine for a woman in my gym who is 5' and 100lbs.)
