    I've tryed on the kickskin gloves, one of the guys I train with has them. They have a gel padding. It's sorta odd. The acuual gove is made out of neoprine if I remember correctly. Some padding but not alot. The Twins Shooto gloves looks the best for sparring, or mabey the Quano.

    anyone like how big boxing gloves are?
    you just can't see over them!



    "but I guess MMA gear is still a ways out from being available in your local sporting goods shop. ;)"

    unfortunately true.....but i see boxing stuff in stores....like SportChek
    check the newspaper or phone book directory for martial arts stores....
    there's bound to be some in Ottawa

    yes we know, but thin gloves equal more hurt for your training buds,

    situations differ but most of us would generally use these gloves for sparring our classmates and friends, for competitions you might switch to an *ahem* "upgraded" pair of gloves hahah!

    "There is no glove in the world that will allow you to hit someone as hard as you can in the face and have them like it."
    ahhh the Infamous Pillow Strike!


    Berserk-Is the gel padding any good?
    I'd like to see them split when hitting a guy!

    Gel all over the floor.


    These synthetics are supposedly stronger than leather, but leather smells better! :)

    I still say if you want to protect your partners face, get him a decent set of head gear complete with face shield.

    When it comes to gloves, whether they have enough padding to protect me comes first and whether or not they are condusive to protecting my partner comes last.

    Cool. Thanks, guys. BTW Punisher, I'm well aware that gear is meant to protect the wearer, but as you yourself have noted, you can be mean or nice (to your partner/opponent) by your choice in gear.

    An example: At my MT school, the shin pads we use have removeable padded inserts as the main padding. The inserts are in for sparring, but not for competition (in Canada, you have to wear shin pads in amateur MT; don't know if it's the same elsewhere). <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

    And Piz,
    >there's bound to be some in Ottawa

    There's one. <sigh>

    It's not exactly practical to wear a head gear or a face shield while doing MMA sparing.

    "It's not exactly practical to wear a head gear or a face shield while doing MMA sparing."

    Well, tough ****. Don't hit as hard or or limit strikes to the head, but DON'T expect gloves too help your partner out.

    Gloves make sparring more dangerous for the other person by allowing you to hit the harder and more times without serious injury to your hands. He would be better off if you were wearing no gloves.

    Besides, how do you think pro MMA fighters train? Do you think that they don't wear safety gear or insist their sparring partenrs don't?

    It is almost impossible to spar MMA style full contact safely. Most pros train their strking and grappling separately using all the proper saftey gear, then combine them in light contact sparring with rules designed not to hurt them or their parteners.

    I'm going to be getting a pair of Enson Inoue's Vale Tudo - Shooto gloves soon, I'll give everyone a heads-up once I get them. They're made by Twins so I expect pretty high quality.

    And guys, just be smart when you train. Don't expect your gear to make up for your stupidity. Don't pound your training partner in the face full force and speed because he left himself open in the guard. Just tap him a couple of times so he gets the idea. Light contact to the head/face, full contact to the body. That seems like the smartest thing to me. Just remember, "Your training partner is the guy who's going to back you up in a fight. Treat him accordingly."

    Linkage for the Enson gloves.

    Expensive but look perfect for training.
