    Work on a heavy bag only in large gloves. Take care of your wrists.

    Obviously depends on how you are punching the bag.
    If you haven't been striking very long and you just try to throw haymakers at the bag then you will fuck your hands up.
    If you are throwing punches with 50% power and with good accuracy/technique then you will be fine.

    I love my rival bag gloves but you're 100% right about that knuckle tear. Going to pick up heavy bag specific gloves soon.

    Start off slow and light. Focus on correct hand placement and locking the wrist... You can slowly increase speed and power over the weeks/months and you'll likely feel results. But make sure you're using a lighter/less dense bag. If it's too heavy for you to see the impact curve, it's too heavy for you to punch without gloves.

    Oh, and don't do this at the end of training when you're tired. You're more likely to have jelly arms and accidentally sprain your wrist.

    To me no danger to you possibly big as in twisting your wrist and cutting your skin.

    Punching bags without gloves forces you to punch properly and is not necessarily bad for your joints or more injury prone. It just means you have to form a proper first and have real punching technique.
