    I agree. It's a bit of a story behind having nothing but competition mma gloves right now. You see, I came into some money, and am otherwise always literally penniless. So I bought a six foot banana bag. I have three close training partners and we're all getting in this together, two of them have literally no training at all. In any case, I bought all of us the nhb gloves because I felt that they would all be more familiar with them, having seen them on the mma matches they love to watch. More so as a incentive, as I told them that I saw it as my investment in them, a trade for commitment.

    I used them twice on the heavy bag, and a couple of times on the target mitts and kick pads, but just to wear them in.

    Oh yeah, I checked out the Lysol and it turns out they have these handy disinfectant wipes now. Actually they're just perfect for fitting into the creases and small holes of the glove fingers etc.

    Concerning the bag gloves, I think I'm going to get a pair as I have a job lined up pretty soon. I have been having small jolting pains in my hand when I hit the bag full force. I weigh about 200 and I think I need to strengthen my hands. Does the bar in the middle of the glove help with that, or is it more of a grip to ensure hand solidity to avoid such pain? And in hand strengthening technique, what is your opinion, squeeze balls? Hand grips?

    Typically 10 or 12oz depending on fighter weight and governing body.

    Here is the IKF glove weight chart:

    WS, do you think this thread should be better served in Strikeistan (since it's mostly a discussion on proper glove equipment and care)?
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I actually use an inexpensive pair of 12 oz. sparring gloves (KO Fightgear brand) for bag and pad work; for actual sparring I use 16 oz. sparring gloves (also KOF brand). I would have bought a pair of dedicated bag gloves, but I was able to pick up the 12 ouncers for cheap and have just stuck with 'em ever since.

    haha, I hate when people don't use the right gloves, particularly when trying to spar me. I have 16 oz training gloves that I use for sparring, and nothing pisses me off more than someone who jumps in with me wearing 4oz bag gloves.

    The harbinger gloves are what I usually use for bagwork. They give good wrist support and are small enough to let you articulate your punch so you hit with your knuckles, instead of hitting with a huge nondescript surface like boxing gloves.

    Maybe I'm a wimp, but I think you're going to kill yourselves if you're using 4 oz competition gloves to spar with and 2/3 of your partners have no training. Check out Piranha Gear; you can find nicer if cost isn't a concern, but most of their stuff is amazing value for how low the prices are.

Not only that, but since I wasn't really sure on how to clean them (as the internet provided scary answers involving bleach and dumb ones involving cedar chips) I also contracted a light form of staph, which it turns out can be a triggering mechanism for miliaria.

    You see, the pain in the ass with miliaria is that it gets worse if you sweat, and you have to remain in cold dry tempuratures and take cold showers. I live in Hawaii, so no going outside, no training etc. for 3 weeks straight.

    Point being that in case you don't know, wrap your fingers, wrist and any place that the leather might cause friction with your skin with athletic tape. Also, I would very much appreciate it if anyone could give me any good alternatives to using athletic tape. I have some 180' hand wraps but use those only for boxing gloves or by themselves (too big for the nhb's).

    Furthermore, a friend of mine recommended a cleaner called phisoderm. However, it turns out that they discontinued the line of antimicrobial soap they had going a few years ago, so if anyone could provide me with a good alternative it would be great.
    DUDE! That fucking sucks! and it sucks on so many levels! Its summer too! God I hope you have central air.
