    If switching gloves fucks your game up, then youre in trouble when its time to fight for real.
    Os,

    This is tantamount to saying that training methods make little difference to fighting style or ability. While switching down may not be as much of an issue, switching up to boxing gloves certainly is. Boxing gloves are significantly heavier than grappling or centruy style gloves. My fairtex grappling gloves are like 4 oz each, boxing gloves 16oz and about 10 times as bulky. While 1 pound on your hand seems insignificant, when you're trying to keep your guard up for a two hour practice it becomes noticable. Moreover the size difference is a huge factor in many ways. Parrying and covering up are obviously easier with boxing gloves and covering up in a boxing like manner is not nearly as effective w/o boxing gloves on and it is now unfortunately an automatic response if your a former boxer. While striking ability and evasive ability isn't likely to change there are certainly tactical changes that must be considered.

    There is a difference and it is not just due to skill levels. Consideration of the modifications that must be made doesn't mean you suck.

    I find that if what you're studying is geared towards MMA-style fighting, there is no real difference in how you use boxing gloves or NHB-style gloves.

    I'd agree with this pretty strongly. From my reading it seemed like the original post was about someone trying to make the transition from boxing TYPE training to nhb TYPE.

    This isn't as clear cut as good or bad though, two inches of padding lost requires an actually large reassessment of distance.

    Considering that I hardly ever hit anybody with 14 oz. gloves anyway, I find this to be a moot point.

    I practice with boxing gloves all the time, I grapple with them too just to add insult to injury. I find it teaches you some pretty solid techniques. Shows you how to grapple without holding with your hands.

    Indeed, you can still do several subs with boxing gloves. My favorite being the RNC.
