Basically its just a thin piece of leather that covers the fingers with no extra padding inside like boxing gloves. Kinda like heavybag gloves. The only way ppl can grab the fenced with these on is over the top bar. If that happens I think there should be 2 ways to handle it. 1. If they are holding the top in advance then they should be warned. Multiple warnings = point deduction. 2. If they immediately hold the top and stop a takedown the ref should stop the fight and reposition them on the mat giving the guy going for the takedown top positon (full guard). No point deduction needed here as the attacker gets points for the takedown anyway. Thoughts? EDIT: For those who keep talking about how grapplers wont like it. The mitten part isnt smashing the fingers together tightly. Like I said its kinda like heavybag gloves. Your fingers can still move around within the mitten part so you can still spread your fingers for a wider grip.
