Talking What gloves would be better for training on thai pads?

Sorry I'm a newbie when it comes to training Muay Thai! I'm starting class on Monday and want some advice on gear? Do I need to wrap my hands for thai pad work? I already prefer not to for heavy bag training! Which one of these gloves would be good for Thai Pad and Heavy Bag work? I don't need sparring gloves yet since i'm a beginner! Which ones should I get?

12 oz Super Bag gloves

or

16 oz Classic Hook & Loop Training Gloves

I recommend the 16oz. They seem the standard size used by a lot of people. Has thicker padding for protection.

Go inbetween? lol... go for the 14oz, more than adequate protection for hitting thai pads... and as for hand wrapping, i wouldn't bother unless your wearing bag gloves or anything under say 10oz and hitting an object for prolonged periods, like an heavybag for an hour.

i've never used Combat sports equipment, their shin instep guards have had some decent reviews but i'm unsure about their gloves... for the price ($24.99) suppose you can't go wrong. look into investing in some Twins gloves if you decide to take up MT.

Thanks yeah I've done bjj and regular boxing for a year now but am looking forward to the challenge of Muay Thai. Thanks for the advice I'm going to go with 12oz for now and then buy a seperate pair of 16oz or 18oz gloves for sparing when I work up to the sparring phase of training down the road!

Thanks again guys,

Brick

Ps More replies if peeps have additional advice thanx!

working with 16 oz will make you faster long term.

I don't personally believe in bag gloves.

I'm leaning towards the fairtex gloves! Heard they are top of the line!

Depends which line you're orderin from lol... quite a few dodgy factories out in Thailand making counterfeit equipment, ordering from a legit and trusted retailer should be alright though.

For Boxing gloves i prefer Twins & Sandee, just feel more comfier and my current Twins have outlasted friends pairs of king/fairtex and raja....

Yeah, I'd go with twins personally. They're usually cheaper too.
