Padded mma gloves are used to protect the hands of MMA (mixed martial arts) competitors and trainers during training and sparring sessions. This full contact sport combines elements of standing combat (Muay Thai, kickboxing, boxing) with those from the ground (Bjj, wrestling, judo).
The main difference between fight and sparring gloves is the amount of padding, which increases the protection for your hands when striking and grappling. They also generally have a smaller opening for your fingers, which allows you to grab and hold on better during sparring. However, the extra padding can make it more difficult to obtain specific grips during a class, and may limit the flexibility of your thumb.
A good padded mma glove will distribute the impact of a blow evenly across your hand, preventing serious injuries to the knuckles and palm. It should also have a secure wrist closure and sufficient breathability.
The Fairtex MMA gloves are made of high-quality leather that is durable and allows air to penetrate. This makes them more comfortable after a short break-in period. Their 3-layer foam padding reduces the shock of a hit and provides good protection for your hands.
These MMA gloves are ideal for anyone who wants to avoid the hassle of using fabric hand wraps. The double-x closure provides a snug fit, and the gloves have a decent amount of protection for heavy strikes. The only drawback is that they are not very flexible, and the design is a bit too robust for grappling. Gants mma rembourrés
