In this video Ben shows the technique he has been using for the past 7 years for wrapping his hands before training boxing, muay thai, and MMA.
The idea of wrapping hands is not to protect the knuckles with a cushioning of cotton, but to create a weave of cloth that tightens as you close your fist, making the small bones in your hands less likely to move around or fracture.
A smart fighter looks after his body, because a fighter’s career is only short, and we don’t need to make it shorter! Once we have stepped over the ropes for the final time, it is likely that we still have two-thirds of our life ahead of us after fighting, and we still want our body to be able to function properly.
