Hey guys - I'm new to the forum. I started learning muai thai and I practiced for about a year until I had a bad hip injury. After hip surgery and a year without sport the doctor has finally allowed me to go back to martial arts but I am not allowed to do any kicking so I'm gonna move to "Western" boxing. A few mates of mine are keen to train with me and we are looking into buying some focus mitts. I live in Asia (Singapore) so I will be buying direct from the US (there's more choice). Would you mind please recommending some mitts for me/us please? The budget is anywhere between $60 and $100. I was looking at the Fighting Sports Tri Tech Curved Mitts (http://store.titleboxing.com/fighting-sports-tri-tech-curved-mitts.html) or the TITLE Gel Contoured Punch Mitts (http://store.titleboxing.com/title-gel-contoured-punch-mitts.html) Since the mitts are going to be used by different people, I picked mitts that have a strap to ensure it fits everyone's hands. Not sure whether I should stick to curved focus mitts of whether I should get straight mitts to allow for elbow strikes - happy to hear your views.
