A focus mitt is a padded target attached to a glove and usually used in training boxers and other combat athletes.

The person holding the focus mitts will typically call out combinations and “feed” the puncher good counter-force while maneuvering and working specific skills. Focus mitts are often used as an augment to sparring, with more explicit focus on the puncher than the feeder, especially to develop good punch combinations and defensive maneuvers such as “slipping,” “bobbing” and “weaving.”

When wearing focus mitts it is important not merely to hold them but to actively “feed” them into the punches, to balance their force and prevent injury to both parties.fd buy now
