(Part 1) Starting with Your Wrist and Hand
Hook your thumb through the loop. First, hold your hand up in an open position, palm-down. Keep your hand straight with your forearm, with your fingers straight and slightly spread out. Spread your fingers and thumb apart. Then slip the wrap’s looped end over your thumb so that the wrap itself falls across the back of your hand.
- Be sure to begin wrapping your hand across the back of your hand rather than your palm. Beginning with the back of your hand will prevent the wrap from loosening later on.
- For extra support, wrap your wrist three times. However, if your wrap is too short, or if you prefer keeping your wrists a little loose for specific punching styles (like uppercuts and angled hooks), only wrap it twice.
- At this point, focus more on wrapping your hand securely rather than your knuckles.
