Working with many trainers we have come to learn that styles of coaching pads are a personal preference and these preferences vary from trainer to trainer but there is an overall understanding that for practicality the pads need to be lightweight, easy to manoeuvre, comfortable and absorb impact effectively.
Coaching pads are a crucial training aid to teach skills such as Balance, speed, movement, distance and punching combinations whilst static or when attempting to simulate an opponent’s movement around the ring in a more realistic competitive environment.
The lightweight speed coaching pad is made from only the best quality supple leather goat hide and a combination of flexible lightweight materials.
Incorporated within the target area is a gel layer acting to absorb the impact effectively to protect both the opponent and the user.
These 7 inch diameter pads are very light and are specifically used for speed training, enhancing the development of Hand eye co-ordination, speed, agility and balance.
The internal part of the mitt incorporates an anti-slip material that allows additional grip to the fingers reducing further movement of the pad when being struck.
The outer finger area is exposed and the anti-microbial moisture wicking material helps to aid cooling and hygiene.
