Can I recommend not hitting anything hard including boxing bags, not until you fully understand proper empty hand striking techniques.

If a person does have weak wrists, then strengthening them up gradually and safely really needs professional advice.

Wrist strengthening techniques isn't so important for those that are using them within their working professions, but for others, working in an office for instance, auxiliary exercises are highly recommended.

All martial art disciplines will have wrist strengthening exercises, that are highly beneficial, so as to do MA techniques properly and safely.

Many Kung Fu and karate systems stress wrist conditioning exercises, well worth investigation; especially: Eagle/Dragon/Tiger Claw, Chin Na, Aikido... all grappling arts.

Just needs to be said; all martial artists benefit from having strong wrists.


I've trained traditional type Taekwondo for over 3 years.. Not hitting mitts is not an option.
You having trained in TKD (Traditional) for 3 years, then I don't understand why you have weak wrists?

Three years is surely enough time to have strengthened your wrists in this time frame, while in class isn't there any type of wrist exercises such as push ups, handstands against a wall and wheelbarrow walking with s partner?

King Fu Iron palm can be practiced on a mitt, very useful to know.

We were punching old, soft mitts for 2 years. Then bought a new hard one.. I can keep the wrist straight but it doesn't feel as stable as I want it to be.

Kettle bells are becoming more popular, due to being able to do a variety of exercises that are beneficial for overall combative strengthening.

Thick rubber bands are also becoming a part of martial artists conditioning routines, adding strength and flexibility.

For personal use, I use a bar with handles on both ends with a thick spring in the middle.

A pull up bar, is also quick and convenient to use, that just hooks on to a doorway frame.

Dumbbells and ankle weights, playing catch with sand bags...

Obviously, boxers are in danger of wrist injuries and do need to condition them, even still, accidents happen.
