Hey guys, I've had three classes now and have decided to buy my own gloves, as the ones the gym provides are pretty tatty and don't fit great. Everyone else in the class has their own so I'm hoping I'll wont appear like an 'all the gear, no idea newbie'! Anyway, there is a shop nearby that sells boxing gloves - would these be fine for training? I know I'd need a different set for sparring, but this is purely for pad word and general MT practice. Alternatively, I could order specific Muay Thai gloves but they'd not arrive until the end of the week most likely. Should I wait it out, or is there no real difference in terms of training? Edit - Sorry, the title should be gloves for training, not sparring.
