Punching mitts and focus pads are essentials in every good gym. Mitts are used by individual coaches and in groups for drills. In this section you can find small focus mitts for boxing and kickboxing, kicking targets and double mitts for taekwondo.
Focus mitts are often used in fight drills to sharpen a fighter's sense for distance and timing while simulating sparring alike conditions. Learning and repeating multi technique combinations is best done by a trainer holding small, curbed focus mitts. If a fighter lets his guard down mitts may also be used to tackle him or her for drawing attention to defensive glitches. The quality of mitts is determined by its ability to take strikes without recoil and the handling ability for the trainer. Of course, durability plays a vital role for everyday use in commercial MMA gyms.
