ProGauntlet is a protective exoskeleton for the hand, designed to provide the best combination of impact & thrust protection and motoric freedom. This glove was developed by a team of passionate martial artists-engineers with one purpose:


To enable martial artists to safely bring out the best of their performance in training and competition by getting rid of the severe limitations of common protective gloves.

Rather than improving upon existing concepts, the ProGauntlet has been engineered from scratch on the foundation of extensive research in biomechanics, medical science, impact physics, and material science.


The development of the ProGauntlet has been conducted in collaboration with the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and the design is patented (or currently pending) in multiple countries world-wide.

The ProGauntlet is composed of a self-supporting, plastic hardshell with a specialised padded inner glove. The design has many unique features and qualities that make a big difference for your safety and performance.
