How To Choose The Right MMA Fighting Gloves
Learning how to choose the right MMA fighting gloves is up to the preference of the fighter. The right-fitting gloves for MMA should fit properly and feel right on the fighter’s hand. Fighting gloves come in various styles, sizes and fit. Choosing the right glove for a MMA fighter means fighting gloves will need to be sampled. This article will walk you through the process of deciding the right glove for your MMA experience. Refer to the instructions below, head off to the sporting goods store and fit the proper fighting gloves.
Things you'll need:
- Sporting goods store
- Variety of fighting gloves
- Check the phone book for sporting goods stores and call ahead. You are looking for MMA fighter gloves, which may have their own section or you may find them in the boxing section. When you find a place, head out and check out their wares.
- Once you find the MMA fighting gloves, pull several off the shelf. Check various manufacturers as well; different builds mean different fits. The proper fit of an MMA fighter’s gloves should place the strap at the wrist. The fit will be just below the wrist bone. When tightened, the fit must be snug but not uncomfortable.
- Strap the glove on tightly. The knuckles should be fully covered and padded. The palm area will vary. If you chose a glove with a palm, ensure it fits tightly and there is no slack. Shake your hands down at your sides--there must be no slippage. The finger placements must be snug but not too tight. Comfort is key.
