    Can we please trend the quality of this thread up since someone moved it to The Advanced striking forum and pruning would take forever?

    OK. I posted it in YMAS to avoid exactly this problem, but it was moved, I think to get Choke to stop fucking around.

    Let me change the question to: Do the exposed small knuckles of MMA gloves require specific punching techniques to avoid injury? Could there be an advantage to less common variations like the 'thumb-down' fist rotation ala Fedor on overhands?

    Honestly, The problem is encouraging people to strike each other while wearing hard objects. I think hard cages and helmets are all a terrible idea. You can get plenty of protection of of a quality boxing training head gear.

    BUT since you likely won't be able to change that take your Troll's advice and buy Harbinger style gloves that have an extra joints worth of protection.

    See the extra articulation?

    to avoid a derail i will keep this short and we can continue via PM if necessary...

    http://www.usksf.org/ <--- the only org that i know of putting on lei tai fights, and the org i was referring to (yes, i know lei tai is an ambiguous term.)

    they have a big tournament in hunt valley md. every july, and there are some smaller regional ones elsewhere. we always go fight at the big one in hunt valley, although i don't know if we will have any fighters competing this year.

    To be clear, you don't just want second knuckle protection, you want the whole finger? Because I'd go with Harbingers, they protect the second knuckle and look nifty. They're also made with really nice leather and are very durable.
    It does look a lot like Boggs' old sport JJ, but this is Delucia's version.

    Thanks for the tip on the Harbingers.

    P.S. In a class full of people wearing helmets and pajamas, doesn't everyone look like a... oh, never mind.

    Thanks for the link. PM if there's more to tell. Keep the derail low key.
