Hook and jab pads are a crucial coaching aid to teach skills such as Balance, speed, movement, distance and punching combinations whilst static or when attempting to simulate an opponentís movement around the ring in a more realistic competitive environment.
An effective set of pads should be lightweight and shock absorbent, they should protect the userís hands and fingers whilst being hit but also padded to simulate a return strike.
The Arma AX-5 Series pads are manufactured with a combination of flexible lightweight materials allowing them to flex naturally when the inner foams are being compressed.
Genuine leather is used for the target area and our durable cross fibre synthetic material to the less exposed areas of the pads. A correct balance of varying layers of Air and EVA foams ensure they protect both the opponent and the user.
The integral part of the mitt needs to enable the user to grip the pad in as natural a position as possible so internally is a palm domed area allowing for a more natural grip reducing undue stress and tension on the inner forearm muscles. Incorporated around the dome is an anti-slip material that allows additional grip to the fingers reducing further movement of the pad when being hit.
The outer finger area is perforated for ventilation allowing the anti-microbial moisture wicking material to aid cooling and hygiene.
There is a generous layer of raised padding under the wrist to aid in the support of wrist flexion for when those hitting sessions get heavy.
A good trainee pad for personal trainers and coaches alike as these pads will offer confidence and comfort to any class session.
