I was thinking about posting this in the standup forum, but decided that this would be the better place since it relates to equipment and I trust the people here at G&E. Anyway, I am back home training at my vale tudo school (I train JJ at college), and my instructor asked me to come to the Saturday "competition" training session and work with some guys on their ground game. Well, one thing lead to another, and before I knew it, I was sparring guys full contact with mma gloves. Though I was beating guys on the ground, I was having some trouble in the standup. Luckily, we were wearing headgear with plastic facemasks, so my face is still all in one piece. My hands, however, are all bruised up. I was wearing wraps and sherdog mma gloves, but my knuckles were still all bruised and red. Additionally, my fingers are all cut up from throwing hooks, since the mma gloves do not cover them, and the plasic facemask is tough to hit. Anybody have any advice on how I should solve this hand problem? How I should wrap or treat the bruises and cuts on my hands? Should I invest in a new pair of gloves that would take better care on my hands? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
