Karate mitts have been used by karate practitioners for a long time, especially since the introduction of Karate to the west. Used to help protect the knuckles and the opponent during sparring practice and in competition fighting. All karate gloves out there offer no wrist support and have a padded area on the knuckles and back of the hand. The palm is open, which allows you to grab or utilise open palm strikes.
These gloves are made with injection molded foam covered with a blue coloured vinyl. They also have an elastic strap with Velcro fastening for securing around the wrist. Many competitions require you to fight in a red and blue pair, so many people buy both colours, prior to a competition.
Made with the WKF style in mind, which includes the thumb hole, which adds extra support and helps stop it being bent backwards. A very well made gloves that will last you a long time in your training.
“These are almost exclusively used by the karate styles, although we have had other people use them in the past. Check with your instructor first before you buy them if you are not a karate style.”

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you.
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS.
UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that.
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
