    Question about gloves

    I sent my son to spar with some students at a school where they wear space helmets instead of head gear. This was pretty hard (80%) sparring, and he was wearing MMA gloves over wraps. He ended up injuring his finger tips after landing an off target overhand to the hard helmet of his opponent. My question is: Can anyone recommend an open palmed 4 oz glove that is a) not fingerless, and b) not thumblocked.

    thanks.

    What about the Bruce Lee gloves? They are a little heavier than 4 oz, and the fingers are covered and articulated.

    I thought about Kenpo gloves. They seem a little big for grappling, but I'll take a closer look.

    They actually make the regular karate "punches" with articulated fingers as well.

    Edit: Got it... ProForceŽ Velocity Punches

    Also, anybody know what the glove weight of Kenpo gloves is?

    Pro-Force Velocity Punches. I got them off of the Asian World site.

    Um...might I suggest that he just not punch with his fingers sticking out ala Chuck Liddell anymore, for everyone's sake?

    He doesn't punch with his fingers sticking out. The last knuckles are exposed in those gloves, and his opponent moved his head in a way that caused him to hit on that area.

    Seconded. The problem here isn't with the gloves, it's the piss poor punching performance.

    If you two were posting in response a vid I there would be something to talk about. Since I'm asking an equipment question to address my kid's injury, and you have no basis for analyzing the mechanics of the punch, I don't really think this is funny.
