Round Focus Pads
Using heavy duty round focus pads is a great alternative to the traditional kidney shape focus mitts that have the glove to insert the holder’s hand at the back. The round focus pads are easier to hold and much easier to keep clean with a handle and wide Velcro adjustable strap at the back. They offer a more user friendly round target and are better if you are doing kicks as well as punches as you can use them as a focus mitt or as a Thai kick pad.

Coaching and Punching Focus Mitts
Most coaches like to test the fighter’s defensive skills whilst they are hitting the focus mitts. For this purpose there are coaching & punching focus mitts boxing gloves, which can more easily be used as a boxing gloves as well as focus mitts. When using this type of focus mitt coaches and trainers are better able to develop both the fighter’s defensive and attacking skills by throwing a few punches whilst the fighter is hitting a focus mitt. If a fighter drops their guard or forgets to keep their head moving then the trainer can let them know it with the focus mitts boxing gloves.

Focus Mitts Sizes
Sizing with focus mitts is pretty much one size fits all with an adjustable Velcro strap at the back that tightens around the wrist. The hand size is made for adults but kids can use them too, only kids are better to hold just one focus mitt with 2 hands so they can hold it strong enough.

Holding Focus Mitts
It should go without saying, never hold the focus mitts near your face as they can fly back when hit hard and you will look a little stupid when the focus mitts fly back hitting you in the face. It’s surprising how many of the inexperienced make this big mistake when holding focus mitts for the first time. If you are a big hitter please be considerate when training with those with less experience or not as big and strong as yourself. Ideally the person holding the focus mitts should always be at least as big and as experienced as the person punching.
