Thai Style Boxing Gloves

Muay Thai style boxing gloves are different than those of western boxing in several ways due to the unique nature of Muay Thai boxing and Kickboxing. A good set of gloves is essential for long lasting durability and protection.
Muay Thai gloves, while similar to western boxing gloves, differ in a few ways. Because Muay Thai boxing employs kicks, the gloves have protection on the back of the hand and wrist. They are more flexible and more open to aid in clinch grabs and similar techniques. Leather striking surfaces will add to the durability of the glove so it will hold up longer to intense training.
