Harbinger 320 Gloves Review – Krav Maga Gear

Harbinger 320 Gloves Review - Krav Maga GearIf you are training in Krav Maga or a variety of other martial arts, chances are that you need general training knuckle gloves. They need to have enough padding but not too much, be flexible and durable, and not cost an arm and a leg.  Eventually you will need sparring gear such as headgear, shin guards, sparring gloves, and a mouth guard but knuckle gloves will get you started.  The best solution I’ve found currently is the Harbinger 320 gloves.

Harbinger 320 – Full Review

When I started in Krav Maga, my first gloves were Century® BRAVE™ Open Palm/Finger Bag Gloves.  I used them for about 6 months, 5 times a week for Krav Maga and fitness kickboxing.  One evening after class, I was taking off my gloves when the Velcro stayed together but the whole back of the glove ripped off.

Not good.  Time for some new gloves.  After quite a bit of research, I found my answer in the form of the Harbinger 320 gloves.

Looking for a Krav Maga t-shirt? Check this one out…

*** UPDATE ***

The campaign is over and unfortunately, it was not funded (needed to sell 10 shirts, only 3 sold).  It was a nice experiment that did not work out.  One day I’ll roll it back out and see if it is successful.  Thanks to all those who visited the page, even if you didn’t buy.

If you want to be notified when these (or other) t-shirts go back on sale, drop me a note.

*****************************************

Krav Maga is a great self-defense system that utilizes natural body movements and targets vulnerable parts of the body to keep you safe.  One of the important ideas within the system is retzef which is often defined as follows:

Retzef: continuous combat motion to overwhelm the enemy

Bare your Krav Maga teeth and show the world your retzef with this shirt.

(full disclosure:  This is my campaign and if you order and the shirt is funded, I receive a small amount of profit.  The money doesn’t really matter, I just want the shirt)

If you like the design, leave me a comment.  Even if you don’t order a shirt, I’d appreciate your feedback on the design.

What is Krav Maga?

The definition, according to OxfordDictionaries.com, is:

Krav Maga (ˈkräv məˈgä):  A form of self-defense and physical training, first developed by the Israeli army in the 1940s, based on the use of reflexive responses to threatening situations.

After a little over 6 months practicing Krav Maga, here is my definition:

Krav Maga:  A self-defense system designed around natural reactions, efficient movements, and violent, overwhelming counter-attacks.

If you are not familiar with Krav Maga, here is a video that shows many of the techniques in real world conditions, including a home invasion and attempted carjacking:

As you can see from the video, Krav Maga is a powerful self-defense system.   [Read more…]
