Monks, Druids, Hunters, Rogue, Shamans, and Warriors can use fist weapons. These classes gain benefits when using them.
Enchanting can improve fist weapons, Rogues can improve poisons, and Weightstones can improve weight. Fist weapons can be used in either the primary or off-hand (right/left).
Axes, daggers, fist weapons, one-handed maces, staves, two-handed axes, two-handed maces, and shields are all one-handed weapons. Enhancement shamans are also capable of dual wielding. These warriors wear a special bracer on each arm that holds two identical swords or spears.
Shamans can learn to use any weapon as a one-handed weapon by equipping the Bracer item class feature. This does not change the nature of the weapon; it's still a one-handed weapon that can be used with the other hand too. However, since the bracers are worn on the arms, they allow the shaman to fight while wearing heavy armor too. The bonus feats allowed by the bracers depend on how many there are attached to the arms. There is a limit of five bracers per arm, plus a single extra bracer that can be worn on the head or chest.
A shaman can use only one bracer at a time. If he or she wants to use another one, the previous one has to be removed first. The warrior can hold only a maximum number of bracers equal to his or her Dexterity modifier (plus one). Multiple bracers of the same type are treated as a single heavier weapon for the purpose of attack rolls and damage calculations.
In mixed martial arts, the gloves have no padding on the sides as well, but hammer fists are permitted. In MMA, people love to slam their fists together, and it works very well, though not everywhere. We don't commonly see people employ hammer fists when standing, but we have seen people use spinning back fists. These are effective because they put a lot of force into one hand, allowing your other hand to spin away from your opponent.
The problem with hammer fists is that they are easy to disable with strikes or kicks to the head. Therefore, they should only be used at close range where it is unlikely that someone will be able to strike you with enough force to cause damage. They are also not meant for use at long range, since hitting something hard with your fist doesn't do much good if you aren't touching it when you do so.
People often wonder about using hammer fists at some point in time during a fight. The short answer is that yes, you can use them in MMA. However, they are not recommended since they are easily stopped by a few strikes or kicks. If you decide to use this technique, make sure you do so at close range and not against someone who can hit you back.
Although your fists are not melee weapons, your unarmed attacks are. Therefore, they can be used to make attack rolls with a -5 penalty for wielding a weapon.

Also known as the "hammer fist", this fighting style originated in China during the Song dynasty. It is mainly used by female fighters who wish to appear fierce while avoiding the need for actual combat. Because of this reason, most women who use the iron fist fight only one person at a time, although some experts claim that two people can be involved in an encounter.
Through many years of evolution, the iron fist has become one of the most popular styles among Chinese martial artists because of its effectiveness and simplicity of use.
Brass knuckles, knuckle dusters, fist fillers, or weighted gloves are insidiously simple but effective weapons with a horrific reputation for murdering or maiming "Love-Tap" recipients on a terrifyingly regular basis.
They are used in street fights, between individuals or groups, to show aggression. They can be used as a last resort when other means of defense have been exhausted. However, they are not designed for use by someone who is not willing to risk serious injury or death.
Weighted gloves are hand-held devices that contain weights used in self-defense situations to strike an opponent. The weight in the glove's tip or side creates a striking surface that can be used like a hammer to defend yourself. Weighted gloves are commonly used by boxers and wrestlers when fighting each other with their hands free from their belts or ropes. They can also be used by police officers when taking down violent suspects.
Knuckle dusters are large, flat objects with stiff bristles attached to a base ring for holding them up against a wall or similar stationary object. The user covers the duster with their hand and brings it down hard onto an attacker's head or body cavity (i.e., groin, chest, or stomach). The impact of the duster causes severe pain to its recipient and often results in them releasing their grip on whatever they were holding.
At the Warrior's Terrace in Darnassus, you may get Fist Training from Ilyenia (sp?) Moonfire and Fist Weapons from the Weapon Merchant next to her.
Fist weapons are used by warriors who have not yet mastered the art of swordplay. They provide an affordable alternative to swords for new fighters. The weapons are easy to learn on but require a lot of practice to use effectively.

The weapons are found in the Weapon Shoppe in Darnassus. Open the door next to the counter and go into the room on the left. There are four weapons available: a greatsword, a longsword, a battleaxe, and a warhammer.
