For Christmas, my sister gave me a CKO gym Groupon. CKO is a Kickboxing gym, and I had been dying to try a class. To me, this has been one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. I used it right away. And after just one class, I knew I was going to join. Yes, it was true love at first punch!
I take at least four classes a week, and I quickly learned, that my starter gloves weren’t going to cut it. The researcher in me found and amazing article on the Best Gloves for Kickboxing. So taking the articles advice, I invested in a pair of Everlast Wrist Wrap Heavy Bag Gloves.
The one thing I highly recommend is, make sure you wraps your hands or even better get yourself some gel hand wraps. I’ve used the gloves two nights in a row and my knuckles are all beat up. There’s a hard plate right inside the knuckles, so when you punch, it will hurt. Please protect your hands. Keep in mind, they are new gloves. Like a good pair of shoes, you need to break them in.
Hopefully this information can help. Any questions, leave them in the comments. And please, let me know if you try our these gloves or if you’ve been to CKO before.
