One of the most common injuries in combat sports is hand breaks which is why its important to wrap your hands properly when you start training. Here’s a quick rundown on how to properly wrap your hands:

Take the hand wrap and put your thumb through the loop. Pull the wrap across the back of your hand and wrap it around your wrist three times. Next, wrap it around your palm above your thumb three timesPull the wrap across your palm to where the base of your thumb meets your wrist. Pull the wrap across the back of your hand and between your little and ring fingers. Pull the wrap between your index finger and thumb, and then across to where the base of your little finger meets your wrist. These last two wraps across the back of your hand should look like an X. Do this three more times, once each between your ring and middle fingers, your middle and index fingers, and your index finger and thumb.

Your wrap should be where the base of your thumb meets your wrist. Wrap it around your thumb again, from the back of your hand around the inside. Next, wrap it around your wrist and around your thumb a third time in the same direction, from the back of your hand to the inside, but instead of going down to the where the base of your thumb meets your wrist, pull it across your palm. Pull your wrap three times around your knuckles.
If you have any wrap leftover, continually wrap your hand until it runs out, by wrapping it around your wrist, in an X shape across the back of your hand, across your knuckles, or some combination of the three. Finish by wrapping the Velcro side across your wrist to secure it.

Hopefully that clarifies any misconception when it comes to wrapping your hands.
