Best Answer

Taekwondo fighters use either open-fingered or close fingered gloves. These gloves have a very thin layer of protection for the face of the hand and also the knuckle area. The gloves are meant as a thin layer of protection when kicking or blocking kicks. There is a small piece of usually foam for the palm to grab onto, to add some cushioning when making a fist, which is called the palm bar. There are several manufacturers that make taekwondo gloves which are WTF or KTA approved such as Adidas and Mooto.
