Created with the HEMA martial arts community in mind, these sparring gloves give good protection for the hands and wrists for martial arts weapons practitioners. The gloves are crafted with high-impact shock absorbing foam (10 mm thick in places) encased within a shell of molded hard plastic plates that are 4mm thick.
The fingers have a gauntlet-like construction of overlapping and interlocked plates, giving great protection while still allowing for good finger dexterity. – this gives good protection and shock absorption from the blunted weapons typically used in martial arts sparring. These gloves are covered in a robust microfiber material and have mesh material around the fingers for ventilation. The gloves are fitted to the wrist with a velcro strap and lacing to ensure a snug and protective fit.
These gloves are sized in a manner akin to lacrosse gloves. Use the guidelines below to see what glove will best fit. A good first rule is that if you wear a size small in gloves already, then the 12 sized glove is best for you. Any larger and the 13 glove size should be used.
