Flea Mkt. Score: Glove Weights

It’s probably a gross underestimate to say that half of the equipment at the TKRI Virginia dojo came from a flea market in lovely downtown Ferrum. Over the years I’ve found a wide array of boxing gear there, most of it relatively new and in good condition, at the sort of prices that your average underfunded martial artist can appreciate. I popped in last weekend and found a practically new set of 1.5 pound hand weights, in a very handy glove design:

Perfect for light, slow shadow boxing or, if it’s your cup of tea, kata (emphasis on light and slow- no need to tear a joint out).
