If you want to condition your hands find a good chinese martial arts instructor...for god sakes don't do it the japanese way...no offence to any karateka's.

i am getting worried here....
should i stop wraping? ive done it scince i started to protect my wrists, and now im hearing that i should not wrap them and try to strengthen them?
personally i dont see the point as i am simply doing kickboxing because i enjoy it, it keeps me fit, its great stress relief AND i hope to fight in amature competitions soon.
besides, i never get into fights and dont plan to, but if i did the bleeding knuckles would be a reminder not to get into fights.
is there ever a situation in proffesional fights, where the contestants have bear knuckles
then i think it is ok to strengthen them

confused me x

If you a wrapping your hands there is nothing wrong with that. You are providing extra wrist support a knuckle protection. If all you plan on doing is ring sport, then there is no need to condition your hands.

In the past there were several full contact styles that used bare knuckles, and some still do; however, the majority of fights require the use of boxing gloves. In several countries bare knuckle matches are illegal.

Bottom line...hand conditioning is not necessary for amatuer kickboxing events.
