Santino DeFranco - As for the MMA sparring gloves, I've always used the blue Combat Sports gloves. I'm not a huge fan of them, but they do the trick. I think the key to keeping yourself safe in the MMA sparring gloves is to wrap and tape your hands WELL before sparring.
Good luck with those as I've never really been happy with any of the MMA sparring gloves and have just made due with what I had.
Agreed with MMA gloves there is always pros and cons. If there big enough to protect your hands or training partners it ussually means they're too big to give a good representation of grip, wrestling, submission fighting and well real mma gloves. But they are safer for your habds and teammates. The smaller ones obviously are the opposite. Good representation of MMA bit lack saftey for your hands which can be helpedout with good wrapping and taping jobs underneath but man do they have No Love for the safety of cutting, bloodying, and dismembering of the guys faces and bodies that are there tryingto help you and probably.make a career for themselves in the process.
I always say train Hard but Train Smart! They are my family and even though we beat eachothers faces inon a daily. Injuries are the last thing i ever wantto cause or have happen to me. No Bueno... :)
