    I've started boxing 2 weeks ago and I was told that I need to get some hand tape & wraps to protect my wrist.
    I've bought them both but I have a problem. One, is that the wrap I currently have is too small for my hand. I;m going to try and return it. That's not biggie.
    But I was wondering if I should need to use the tape in conjunction with the hand wraps or should I use them separately.
    Thanks for any help!

    You don't need that if you have just started, a creape bandage will be more than sufficent.

    well i was told that beginners may ned either as their wrists are really weak. My wrists are a little hurt- they're getting better but I want to be able to train and I hadn't been using any protection before.

    I use wraps and then tie my wrist (over the wrap) with the silver tape you get out of hardware stores...

    That's what I've done since day one...

    Just use wraps, you can get them cheap of the net and they're reusable.
