How to choose

When you’re looking for focus pads, there are three main categories to choose from:

1. General Purpose/Fitness Pads
When you’re training mass classes for boxing training, you’ll need a focus pad that’s easy to slip on and off. A general purpose pad should be lightweight but still, protect you from incoming punches. When you slip your hand into the pad, it should fit comfortably and lock-in.

2. Specialist Safety Pads
A specialist safety focus pad is designed to protect you to the maximum degree. A safety pad should be designed with a control bar at the back and shouldn’t slip off during training.

3. Professional Boxing Pads
If you’re training professional boxers or clients that punch hard, you’ll need professional boxing pads. The focus pad should protect your wrist and contain enough cushion in the pad.

Pocket Rocket Focus Pads

The Pocket Rocket Focus Pads are the best focus pads for professional boxing training.

This pad is very light and is designed with a 10cm target in the middle of the pad. This target allows boxers to practice their accuracy on a smaller pad. The Pocket Rocket is also ideal for training speed and evasion. The pad is designed with a Hook and Loop security bar at the back for added support and allows you to train one-on-one for hours.

Ideally the Pocket Rocket Focus Pads should be purchased by boxing coaches and professional personal trainers.
