I have a punching bag at home,and most of the time I just punch it bare handed.I've been told that I could break my fist by doing that.Is that true?Do I actually need gloves or not? I would like some advice.

Thanks

Hi! littledragon, I don't think you are going to break your knuckle unless you are going to punch a Sand Punching bag, the only Time I broke my knuckle is when I break bricks or tile.

But I reccomend using glove with wrist wrap becasue it will help prevent wrist injury and blister which in turn will cause infection because of the cut on the hands. Train smart you will train longer.

A heavy bag can be a great asset to any martial artists training, traditional or modern or otherwise. Use wraps to protect your wrists and knuckles, and also train with heavy gloves which will increase your speed. Also, do practice without gloves or wraps, as its important to develop a strong wrist which can sustain the shock of the punch. When doing this, always start light and controlled, increasing strength and intensity slowly.
Have fun!
