Although Muay Thai gloves and general boxing gloves may seem similar, there are certain differences that set them apart from each other. The first major difference lies in the padding. As Muay Thai fighters have to defend kicks, knees, and elbows, more padding is added to both sides of the glove and in the back to cushion heavy blows.
Secondly, the palm structure of Muay Thai gloves is more flexible, more open, and not as tight as normal boxing gloves. This is due to the fact that Thai fighters need the ability to grip during the clinch, as well as holding or blocking kicks with their hands.
Lastly, the cuff of Muay Thai gloves tends to be shorter and thicker, thus optimizing clinching capabilities.
These are, of course, only the main differences between all gloves from all manufacturers. At SKS Empire, we can help you choose the perfect Muay Thai gloves.
The question of “what size of boxing gloves should I get?” is somewhat a complicated question to answer. As there are many different sizes to choose from. To start with, glove sizes are displayed in ounces, which can range from 6oz. youth mitts to 20oz. heavyweight gloves. To find out the correct size, you need 3 measurements: your height, your weight, and the circumference of your dominant hand.
There are size charts in which you can easily compare your measurements to the most fitting boxing gloves size, but sometimes it can be confusing. Contact us today and we can help determine the best fit for your fists.
After a long training session, it is quite normal to see that your boxing gloves are covered in sweat, and if left unattended, there may be an unpleasant odor coming out of them. Most people would simply put their boxing gloves in the bag right after finishing their training sessions or neglect to clean them. Here are a few tips to keep your Muay Thai gloves clean and increase their lifespan:
- Use a leather-friendly cleaning solution, pour on a soft cotton cloth and wipe the exterior of your gloves. Then remove any excess solution with a paper towel. Do this after each training session to keep your gloves looking like new.
- Dry your gloves with a fan or an air dryer, especially the inside of the gloves, which can contain sweat and germs. Moreover, refrain from storing your gloves in your gym bag right after your session, as the sweaty interior is likely to cause bacteria build-up and result in a smelly glove.
- Don’t wash your gloves with a washing machine or put them in a dryer after cleaning. Doing so will ruin the texture of your gloves and ruin your glove’s foam padding, reducing their lifespan.
