There are a variety of ways to wrap up the hands....but they all follow the basic principal.
Spread your fingers and keep them spread while wrapping your hands.
Put your thumb through the loop of the wrap.
Wrap your wrist two to three times.
From the wrist, move it across the palm of your hand and then wrap it around your knuckles three to four times.
Bring it to the base of your thumb, and wrap it around the base of your thumb twice.
Crisscross the back of your hand, doing figure-eights around your wrist and knuckles until you have just the right amount for one wrap around your wrist.
Your wrist, knuckles, and thumb should feel protected. You should be able to freely move your fingers and also make a good fist.
I have been wearing those new fingerless gloves with the extra support around the knuckles and at the wrists so wraps really aren't necessary. Oh and Welcome to KarateForums Skippy!
