This happens to everyone. You need to make sure you are wrapping your hands properly, if you are unsure, ask your instructor to help you. Try using a different hand wraps.. maybe longer ones, so you can wrap your hands a few more times.

When you are hitting the heavy bag, don't go 100% strength.. Eventually you can go harder on the heavy bag, but allow your knuckles to get conditioned for it. Slowly work your way, and your hands will toughen, and this won't happen as often.

Are you using 16oz or 4ozs? Try moisturising your hands before and after, they could be cracking because they're dry.

I only seem to get cut up knuckles with bare hands. Make sure your knuckles are completely healed before hittin the bag again, and i agree with the above : try more intensity than power and slowly toughen your knuckles up. hope that helps

I've never heard of anyone getting scraped knuckles with gloves on, much less with gloves AND wraps. I'm thinking that either you're not wrapping your knuckles properly or your gloves don't fit right. If everything's done right, your knuckles should have at least 3 or 4 layers of wrapping on them - tight enough that it doesn't move at all while punching - and your gloves should be tight/fit well enough that they don't move around much.

Either way, wait until your knuckles heal before getting back to the heavybag. Eventually the skin'll start to toughen up and it'll stop happening.

If you have damaged the skin on your knuckles before by hitting the bag without gloves and/or wraps then it doesn't matter if they are wrapped or not they will still break open. Let them heal completely and don't hit the bag or pads without gloves and wraps. there are multiple ways to wrap your hands and most can be found easily online. It is worth looking at, because the wraps are there to protect more than your knuckles. Good Luck!

what kind of/how old are your gloves? You just might need new or different ones.

But I would attribute it to dry skin. So, moisturize and take some time off to heal. Especially with job interviews.

Good luck!
