Starpro Boxing Gloves for Kids

It is difficult to find the best combat gear especially boxing & MMA gloves with such a huge variety of products available in the market. The cool designs and flashy colors often take the attention away from quality. Yet, quality is the first thing you need to look for in boxing gloves. Especially, if you are buying boxing gloves for your Child. Here are a few tips to help you choose the best gloves for kids, without compromising on quality.

What Type of Boxing Gloves to Buy?

First of all, you need to figure out the kind of combat sport your kid is participating in and the particular kind of gloves they will need for that. There are three types of gloves used in combat sports
• Boxing Gloves – used for boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, and punching bag training
• MMA / Grappling Gloves – used for MMA, Krav Maga, and other similar forms of training
• Inner Gloves / Hand Wraps – worn under gloves for better protection and a comfortable fit. Hand wraps and inner gloves are also used on their own for almost all types of pure martial arts training

How to Choose Boxing Gloves?

Once you have decided the type of gloves you need, the next thing you must choose is the right size for your child. After that comes the quality. Follow this guide by Starpro Sports to choose the best for your kid.

Inner Gloves and Hand Wraps

Deciding on inner gloves and hand wraps is much easier than boxing, kickboxing, and MMA gloves. For inner gloves, you only have to look for comfortable, soft, absorbent material preferably with a thumb loop and Velcro closure of easy donning.

Boxing and MMA Gloves

Know the right weight class for your child to find the perfect size. Then look for the right materials and optimal padding for the best protection and comfort.

Know the Right Weight Class

Junior boxing gloves are generally available in 4-oz, 6-oz and 8-oz sizes. The 4-oz sizes are for ages 3 to 6. The 6-oz and 8-oz gloves are for 6 to 12 years old kids depending on their weight and hand size. Kids usually have thin, slender hands. These smaller glove sizes also have smaller inner palm spaces to fit the kids. Always get your child to try the gloves with inner gloves or hand wraps on. So that the gloves are not too tight when worn with wraps.

How to Choose the Best Boxing Gloves Material?

You can choose boxing & MMA gloves and even junior boxing gloves in genuine leather, PU leather, and vinyl. Genuine leather is the best choice because of its comfort and durability. It is usually expensive too. PU leather gloves are the best choice for kids. Premium quality PU leather offers almost the same comfort and durability as genuine leather. That too, within a budget. Vinyl is usually the cheapest option in terms of both, quality as well as the price.

Padding for Boxing, Kickboxing, and MMA Gloves

In case of junior boxing gloves, always look for multilayered foam and gel padding. This allows maximum impact dissipation and shock absorption for superior protection. If your kid is participating in boxing or punching bag work, look for maximum padding at the knuckles. For kickboxing and Muay Thai training, inner palm and wrist padding are also necessary along with padding at the knuckles. For MMA gloves, look for a combination of foam and gel padding at the knuckles.

Wrist Closure

Junior boxing gloves come with either Velcro strap or elastic band at the wrist. Wraparound Velcro strap offers the best protection. This strap comes with gel padding for kickboxing and Muay Thai training. MMA gloves especially come with Velcro straps.
The elastic wristband is ideal for younger kids. It is much easier for the kids to slip on and take off the gloves with elastic band on their own. Whereas, they might need some help with the Velcro strap.
