Our trainers sometimes have us do "touch boxing" drills, rounds where we just wear wraps and do light touches with our fingertips. Kinda like slap fighting only very, very light. It reminds us that we're doing something more or less street-practical.

And PLEASE, let's not turn this into a "street fighting" thread. :tapedshut

We do a similar thing too

Personally, I usually do it wraps only. Although to be honest I don't shadowbox as much as I should, I only really do it to warm up/cool down, except for the 4 rounds I do with 2lbs in my hands usually everyday.
