    Gloves..

    there isn't really a comprehensive thread anywhere on gloves..

    what do ya'all use for light/medium/heavy gloves?

    and also.. does anyone from the UK have experience with this?
    it looks like it'd have a pretty good range of movement while providing a good level of protection.



    came from here:

    I currently have baseball gloves, wekaf gloves and ordered some underarmour football lineman demolition gloves

    Those look liked they'd be used by people that like to wack each other with foam covered sticks. I don't think they would be good for fighting. I use boxing gloves or a sparring version of mma gloves (they have more padding). I also have a pair of kempo gloves, I got them just because we used them back in the day but I actually like sparring with them. They are good if your opponent is wearing a face cage.

    WTF are you wearing football gloves for?

    Boxing gloves for sparring, bag gloves for the heavy bag and some type of hockey glove for stick fighting (to stop your hand from breaking).

    MMA gloves can be used by traditional arts to work the open hand technique on a heavy bag as well.

    Padded stick work with ones without a built-in grip, where there isn't enough impact to neccesiate hockey/lacrosse gloves, but I'd like to not get rugburn all over my **** or cheese-grate my hands on a fencing mask. Also, the grip on good ones will keep the stick in your hands pretty damn well.

    This may be OT, but I've sparred naked stick with KIL's padded gloves. At first I thought they offered significantly less protection than standard hockey gloves, but after fighting double-stick this past weekend with hockey gloves, I've found KIL's offer nearly as much protection and MUCH greater range of motion.

    One caveat- KIL's gloves don't, I believe, have quite as much padding on the sides as hockey gloves. I went to block a strike with my sacrifice hand and ended up getting rattan on bone with a little bit of canvas and skin to pad it. That hurt enough that for a split second I considered withdrawing from the fight.

    These are overkill for most sticks under 3 ft. They were designed for SCA (rattan LARP) where a 7 foot piece of rattan can ride down your haft onto your hand. The truly nice thing about them is that they use a normal glove inside the shell so the grip is no more obstructed than a batting glove, and the thumb is a dream. The wrist is the most restricted part but you can still manage open or closed hand rolls fairly easily. The biggest annoyance is the size of the flare at the wrist which snags sticks. After using the Jeet Kune Do BFG's I found that my hand did a lot less work holding onto the stick with these.

    Search "Egg Gauntlets" to find SCA armor sales pages. There are two sizes, normal and ham-fist.

    Edit: Oh, yeah, the whole reason I use these for normal FMA is for those times when I have a bashed finger already and don't want to stop playing.
