Customer Review
"In addition these are the best gloves we have used for both our Shinkage heiho and Owari Kan Ryu sojutsu, and for our “weapons workouts.” I have been trying out different gloves for the past 30 some odd years, and yours are the best I’ve used in that time. They provide the best back of the fist and knuckle protection, and the length of the cuff is ideal for the Shinkage training."

3 of 5 It is not for hard work sparing May 13, 2021
Reviewer: Sunho Yun from Yongin-si, Gyongido South Korea  
I used it when saber practice. There is
not enough pad in back of hands. When Opponent throw saber, it's very painful

4 of 5 Great light sparring gloves February 1, 2021
Reviewer: Matthew Dixon from Buchanan, GA United States  
Great protection for such a light, comfortable glove. Obviously the finger tips are weak spots, but the glove actually has more protection than I thought it would.

Only negative is the stitches which seem like they might be weak, but it's far too soon to tell.

Great price, great glove. I've paid more for gloves with less protection.

5 of 5 Fantastic light sparring gloves January 23, 2021
Reviewer: Mike from Vermont  
I’ve been using these daily for about a month and so far, no noticeable wear and tear. Excellent grip. I have big hands, and usually gloves start to “blow out” around the palm seams, but these are holding true and appear strong. One more note, I’ve soaked them completely when it was snowing outside, and they dry out quickly (next to the woodstove) with no cracking. Good protection for light sparring with synthetics. I’d move up to something more intense if you’re doing anything full contact with steel.
