Choosing the right glove.
There are a few factors to consider when deciding which Muay Thai glove to buy :
What is your budget? are you looking for the best bang for your buck? or is quality your number one priority. Do you have small or large hands ? Also the heavier the glove the more protection for your hands. Typically in a fight 8 or 10 ounce gloves are used. Heavy bag work 16 ounces will protect your knuckles and is recommended for sparring.
