Understanding The ninja Wrap
If you’re new to the world of martial arts and/or want to build up your body and strength quickly, then you may have heard about ninja wrist wraps. These wraps are used by the Japanese martial arts as a way to protect their wrists and forearms from injury and more. Basically, they’re just like a wrap that wraps around your forearm and wrist and adds pressure. This is why they are called “ninja wrist curls.” They were created so that the joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles in your wrists and forearms will not be damaged or cut by the friction from the wrap.
Many different variations of the ninja wrist wrap exist. There are many that go from easy to complicated. For those who have never heard of them before, I’ll give you a little information. First of all, there are several different styles of ninja wrist wraps, including the:
One of the most popular variations of wrist curls is one that goes around the entire hand, with only the top part touching the fingers. This one tends to be called a turtle wrist because it looks like a little turtle shell is wrapped around the entire hand. It has the most benefits because it can be worn under any shirt you want (or even under your pants! ).
Another popular variation of the ninja wrap is one that goes all around the wrist. As I mentioned earlier, some wraps wrap around the whole hand, while others only cover the fingertips. This one takes the least amount of time to perform and is often more comfortable because it doesn’t require putting on a lot of padding. Just tape the wrapping on and go, but make sure that the top of your hand is still visible to the person you’re performing for. Some ninjas even put stickers on the palm of the hand to improve the technique.
For those who are looking for a way to add more force to their wrists, you can try wrist curls. Wrist curls involve curling the hand up and in toward the opposite shoulder. You hold the other hand behind your head, stretch it forward, and hold the wrist curl firm. Because of the increased force and pressure, this technique can actually strengthen the wrist muscles.
No matter what type of wrist wrap you choose to use, whether it’s a wrist curl or a wrist wrap that goes all around the wrist, make sure it’s comfortable. The best types of wraps are the ones that feel natural and don’t restrict movement. After all, ninjas had to move constantly, so why would you want a wrist wrap that restricts movement? By paying attention to how your wrist feels, you’ll have much better results when you’re wearing the proper wrist wrap.
