Muay Thai hand wrapping
 
When ya'll wrap your hands for muay thai, do you wrap your thumb or not. I go with a traditional muay thai wrap, but some people who also use that wrap don't wrap the thumb. Or they don't wrap the thumb real well. Just wondering how ya'll do it.

I don't wrap the thumb even though I've sprained it badly so many times. I don't like it to be restricted, especially while executing a clinch. I always thought the traditional muay thai wrapping left out the thumb, whereas a boxing wrap was sure to protect the thumb well.

I don't wrap the thumb either. I haven't had any problems with it although I do do alot of hand strengthing.

Yeah they frown upon you wrapping between the fingers in boxing. But I like it and it helps , I like the Muay Thai wrap better than the boxing wrap. It ust seems to protect your hand more.

No. I do not wrap my thumb. When I was 15 I broke my thumb punching a guy and that ******* sucked. I was more of a reckless power thrower in those days, I threw my right hand and missed him except for my thumb. I bet the guy has a funky scar on his face, but I have limited range of movement in my thumb :*(
