ARE YOU WRAPPING CORRECTLY?

Boxing is a sport in which it is very easy to progress with an incomplete understanding of the rules and improper techniques…

The first piece of equipment you will ever purchase as a boxer is your very own pair of boxing wraps. You throw them on and you immediately feel protected against the power your target is about to endure from your fists… but are you really protecting yourself?

If done correctly, wrapping your hands is beneficial to helping protect against the repetitive impact endured in boxing.

An incorrect wrap can lead to disqualification from your fight, or even worse, an injury sustained to the hand or wrist.

Boxing is an interesting sport, in addition to being the best sport ever, it is also very easy to progress with an incomplete understanding of the rules and improper techniques. There are not many athletes who would step into a competitive soccer or even golf tournament without at least a basic understanding of the sport. In boxing, there are many athletes, and even coaches who are not fully aware of the technical aspects of the sport.

If you’re interested in becoming a boxer, or even learning more about the sport, be sure to chose a sanctioned club. Get Started TODAY
