Handwrap Guide – How To Put Them On

Today we will be walking you through our Handwrap Guide and show you how to put on hook-and-loop handwraps. There are many ways you can wrap your hands but we will be showing you the most common way. Handwraps are an essential item for any fighter. They help to protect all the small bones and joints in your hand and keep your wrist secure during training

Handwrap Guide

First thing you need to do is fully unwrap both of the handwraps and check them over. You want to make sure they are suitable for you first. Measure them to check they are at least 180″ long or 4.5 meters. Any shorter and you won’t be getting the proper protection. You can get 120″ wraps for people with smaller hands or children. Don’t worry if you have smaller wraps, this handwrap guide will still be fine for you.

Start With Your Thumb

Start by hooking your thumb through the loop. You will be holding your hand palm down and start wrapping the back of your hand first. You will want to start going around your wrist with the handwrap as you can see in the picture below. Make sure you wrap the back of your hand first instead of the front as the wraps may loosen during training.

Starting with your wrist.

You will want to go around your wrist three times to make sure you have enough protection but remember as you are doing this do not go too tight. You still want the blood to get to your hands while you are training, so keep this in mind.

Start Wrapping Your Hand Not Your Knuckles

After you have been around your wrist several times you can move onto your hand. Remember you want to aim more for your hand here rather than your knuckles. You will do your knuckles next so make sure you go above your thumb and just below you knuckles. You will want to make three full wraps at this point.


Wrapping your hand.

Wrapping In Between Your Fingers

After you have covered your hands you can move onto your fingers and knuckles. As you are finishing the third wrap around your hand you will want to pull the wrap under your palm. You want to have it where your wrist meets the bottom of your thumb. This is because you will now be wrapping upwards and your thumb will help to keep your handwraps in place. Next, pull the wrap over your hand and you want to go in between your little finger and ring finger.

Wrapping in between your knuckles.

Now you will need to bring the wrap between your thumb and index finger, as you can see here. Wrap across your hand again aiming for your wrist. After you have crossed your hand, wrap the underneath of your wrist.

You will now be going up again to covering the next gap between your ring finger and middle finger. After you have wrapped this knuckle you will repeat the step from earlier, going across your hand, around your wrist and back up to cover the next gap, which will be between the index finger and middle finger.

Once Around Your Thumb

When you have finished wrapping your knuckles you can move onto your thumb. So after you have wrapped across your hand and the wrap is under the bottom of your hand just below your thumb you will now wrap over and under your thumb. You only need to do this once.

Remember to wrap your thumb up once.

Secure It All With Three Wraps

You will now want your palm facing upwards. Turn your hand over and pull the wrap along your palm and now start wrapping around your hand, front and back. Making sure to cover your knuckles three times.

Securing your Handwraps with three goes around your hand.

Once you have finished wrapping your knuckles, you will want to use the remaining material to cover your wrist. So just follow the instruction that you did before to use up the material that is left.

Finish With The Velcro

Finishing putting your Handwraps on with the velcro strap.

Finally, use the velcro to fasten the wraps in place and make them secure. After you have done this, make a fist to check the wraps feel comfortable and don’t hurt. If everything checks out then you can finally put your gloves on. Just remember if your hands start to hurt or go discoloured at any time take your gloves and wraps off. Let your hand’s breath and then try wrapping them again but not as tight.

What Are The Best Boxing Gloves

Real fighters need a real pair of boxing gloves and today we are going to tell you exactly what that is. There are several things that make boxing gloves good, but we are not looking for good we want the best and I’m going to tell you how you can get it.

Size

Firstly we will start with size. Depending on how you are training or what you are training for this will be different for everyone. And for this reason, you need variety. That is why Boxing gloves come in so many different sizes or ounces. Once you have figured out how you will be training you can then look for the right gloves. If you are working on speed then you may opt for a lighter weight such as 12oz. Sparing will normally involve using heavier gloves such as 16oz. And women may want to use lighter gloves like 8oz and 10oz for classes such as boxercise. It all depends on what you doing and personal preference. You want to make sure your gloves fit your needs in order to get the best out of your training.

Fit

One of the most important things many beginners overlook is the fit of their gloves. If you are only small with hands to match then you may struggle with a large pair of 16oz. And if the gloves are too big for you then you won’t be getting the right support and may injure yourself. One important thing to take into consideration is how your gloves fit with your handwraps on. If you would like to know why this is important then take a look at our handwraps blog which you can find here.

Support

There are lots of great gloves out there on the market but none come close to the protection of Hayabusa’s T3 gloves. They come with a patented dual wrist support strap. Which means if you want to get the maximum wrist support possible, you have to go to them. As they have trademarked this design no one else can copy it but that hasn’t stopped some from trying.

Hayabusa T3 Boxing Gloves
Showing off the Hayabusa T3 Boxing Gloves dual wrist support

As you can see above, there are two straps that overlap which allows you to punch harder without worrying about injury. Some have tried to replicate this, like RDX, and made a design where the strap goes around the glove twice but it just doesn’t compare and provides inferior support.

Boxing Gloves Material

If you want a pair of gloves that will last then you need to make sure you buy ones made from the right materials. Some cheaper gloves are made from Pvc or Semi Leather like Venum’s new range of gloves. Then there’s the Kanpeki Boxing Gloves which are made with 100% premium full-grain leather.

These gloves don’t just look the part but feel and even smell great too. You get that new car smell every time you pull them out of their canvas bag. If you would like to find out more about these gloves and maybe even try then for yourself then click here.

Extra Features

Boxing gloves aren’t normally known for their extra features but sometimes a product enters the market and redefines this notion. Hayabusa’s gloves seem to have it all though. They have developed a 4-way splint system that overlaps specifically designed to keep your hand straight while punching. This protects you from injury which in turn allows you to hit harder. The cream of the crop, however, is the Sweat X thumb. Long gone are the days where you have to grab a towel to wipe down your face after each round. Hayabusa has designed a simple yet elegant way to wipe the sweat away during training. You don’t even have to stop what you are doing while still being able to protect yourself.

I’ll be honest, these are not the cheapest gloves out there but no one said the best gloves in the world would come without a price tag. Hayabusa has been at the forefront of developing new technology for martial arts athletes. Keeping you safe while training and improving your performance for years. And while I could write all day about how these gloves will protect you and improve your training there is really only one way to truly find out. And that’s to try them for yourself. Or at least take a look here to find out some more information about them.

S4 Boxing Gloves

If the price tag is a deal breaker for you but you have always loved Hayabusa products then why not take a look at the S4 gloves here. They won’t give you all the benefits of the T3 range but they do come with some free handwraps and a wash bag. For just £40 you won’t find a better deal anywhere else.

The Perfect Pair Of Boxing Handwraps

If you’re new to boxing and not sure exactly what you need to do then it’s important you make sure you’re as safe as possible while training. Boxing handwraps will protect you and your partner while training. Allowing you to hit harder without worrying about injuring your hands. In this blog, I will be taking you through two things. Why handwraps are so important and what makes a good pair. Hopefully, this will help you to choose your own and stay safe.

When Should I Wear Handwraps

Firstly, it is recommended that handwraps are worn for both bag work and sparring with a partner. This is to protect your hands and wrists against injuries which are caused by punching. And as you can imagine there’s a lot of that in boxing. Repeatedly, hitting a bag or jabbing a partner will eventually cause injury so the wraps are there to help minimise this.

Can I Wear Them During A Fight

It’s not just a good idea to wear them during a fight but it’s necessary. Officials are required to check that handwraps are being worn by both fighters before a fight starts in order to protect the boxers. If you don’t want to wear them then you will not be allowed to fight.

Make Sure Your Wraps Go With Your Gloves

And I’m not talking about getting matching colours here. If you are planning on buying a pair of boxing gloves, then make sure you try the gloves on with your wraps. This is so you can see how the gloves fit while you are wearing your handwraps. You need to make sure the gloves are not too tight or loose with your wraps. If you are not sure what gloves you should be buying then why not take a look at our guide here to find out what will be best for you.

What Makes A Good Pair Of Wraps

So now that you know why wraps are important we will get into what makes a good pair. An important part of this is making sure you have good quality hand wraps. And that they’re the right ones for you. If you opt for a cheaper pair then they will not provide you with the level of protection that you need. You want to find some which have a think enough material to provide adequate padding for your training. Just like the Hayabusa ones below. Click here to have a look at them.

Hayabusa Handwraps

Hayabusa Handwraps

The new Hayabusa handwraps which you can find here, offer maximum protection. They have been designed with an innovative material which helps conform to your hand and aligns your hand and wrist. These high-performance wraps will protect the many small joints, bones and tendons from repeated impact during training. They also offer a hook & loop closure system which is 71% longer than rivals which ensures a superior and secure fit every time you train. This is to stop your wraps from coming undone during training. Which can cause them to loosen around your hand and therefore not offer you the best protection which can lead to injury!

Style Of Wraps

Another important aspect of great handwraps in their style. There are two main styles, traditional and Mexican. Traditional handwraps are made from cotton alone and have been around the longest. They do provide you with a tighter fit but do not stretch. This is why they have been replaced by the more popular Mexican style wraps. Mexican handwraps are a more modern version which is a blend of spandex and semi-elastic cotton. Mexican will always be the best option and they are a more comfortable choice as well.

Length Of Wraps

You will want to make sure your handwraps are long enough. Any wrap under 180″ won’t give you the necessary support and protection that you need and it is wise to stay away from anything less. Some children or people who have smaller hands may look for a shorter wrap and 120″ is popular for kids but the longer the wrap the more padding you will have and the safer you will be.

How To Put Your Handwraps On

What’s the point in buying a great pair of hand wraps unless you know how to put them on. How you wrap your hands, is just as important as buying a good pair. You could have the best handwraps in the world but unless you know how to put them on properly you are risking injury. So click here to see our guide on how to properly put your wraps on. There are several different ways to wrap your hands but any variations from the ones we have just shown you will be fine. Remember to try and cover all of your hand with an even layer of material.

Recap What We’ve Learned

So now that you have all the information it’s time to go out and get you handwraps. Remember the important bits though. Mexican over traditional. Nothing under 180″ long. Look for something with a long and secure hook & loop closure system. And make sure you try them on with your gloves before you buy anything.

BJJ Guide – Where To Start For Beginners

This is our BJJ guide for beginners and if you are curious about starting martial arts and want to know how to go about it then you have come to the right place. Today I will talk you through all of the questions beginners have. If you would like to find out about how long it takes to get each belt then click here. Otherwise, carry on reading.

What’s The Difference Between Gi or No-Gi

Firstly we will start this BJJ guide with what the difference between Gi or No-Gi is and the main one is what you wear.
Hayabusa Gi

This is a Gi. It’s similar to a Judo Kimono but it’s thicker and heavier. It also normally comes with more patches than it’s Judo counterpart. This is what you will wear when you train Gi. The pants, jacket, belt and a rashguard if you want. In No-Gi you will just be in a rashguard and shorts. Don’t worry about wearing any type of support though. Pretty much everyone who trains has some small injuries and you will find a lot of people wear joint supports and tape around there fingers and hands.

Make sure you don’t show up to your first class in a t-shirt. As your top will be loose someone might catch a finger in it and may injuring their hand. Also, don’t wear or shorts with zips or pockets. These can be dangerous for anyone that you are training with as if the zip catches them it may end up cutting them.

Also don’t be that guy who’s too good for a gum shield. Everyone wears them for a reason and if you have to start with a boil and bite then so be it but I’d recommend investing in a proper one which you can get from your dentist. Just because there are no punches being thrown in BJJ doesn’t mean you won’t catch an accidental knee to the face one day. So get a gumshield.

What’s Better

Now we have got that out the way, time to discuss what’s better. And the answer is it’s completely up to you. I started off training No-Gi, it’s easier to get into, cheaper as you don’t need to splash out on an expensive Gi and feels more natural for most people and a Gi can be restricting. I eventually moved onto Gi and I’ve been training it ever since. The Gi allows you to perform more moves. You can grab onto it and even use it to tap your opponent.

I personally think it’s better to train mostly Gi and do some No-Gi on the side. If you try to do it the other way around then you may start to get caught out by moves you have never seen before but like I said its completely up to you. And it depends entirely on your training. If you want to have some MMA fights then No-Gi may be better for you.

Why Are There Different Gi’s

There are hundreds of different companies making Gi’s these days and each company seems to offer you something new or different as well. The main types of Gi’s are Gold Weave, Pearl Weave, Lightweight or Ultra Lightweight and Competition. If you would like to read more about them and find out which one is best suited for you then click here.

Start with the basics

You will find most gyms offer a few different classes. These range from Beginners or 101 to  Advanced and Competition. Depending on where you train there may even be a few more options. If you have never trained before then I would recommend going to the beginners class, they are there for a reason. You will learn how to perform some basic moves and learn what you can and can’t do. Every class is different but most gyms follow a similar routine.

Most start with a small warm up and then on to pass guard. Pass guard is a pretty standard part of every class. It’s normally just some light training to get you warmed up. You will start with a partner, one will start on their back with the other between his legs, just like in the image below.

If you start on top then it’s your job to “break” your opponent’s legs and then either pass to get side control or get on top in mount. And if you are on the bottom then you will have to sweep your partner. This basically involves turning him over so you have swapped positions and you are now on top and your partner is where you started. After about 5 minutes of this, you will go on to some technique. Your instructor will show you a move that you will practice on your opponent. Depending on the type of class you may learn a few and spend a lot of time getting everything perfect or you will move straight onto rolling.

Rolling is where you practise what you have just learned. You will take your new techniques and try them out for real. And if it’s a competition class or open mat then you might even go straight into rolling without any technique at all but this isn’t recommended for beginners. So you may just want to start with the beginner’s classes so you can spend more time learning moves as you are justing getting into the sport.

Pay Attention

You won’t be rolling every single class. Sometimes there will be too many people on the mat so you have to sit out for a roll. You may find that you get split up into groups. Which allows you to roll with people who are a similar skill level to you. Either way, you will be watching sometimes so take advantage of this time and watch everyone roll. Training with more experienced partners is one of the best ways to get better. You can even still learn from them while you are sat out though. Just watching higher belts will improve your game and you will pick up things that they do and you can try it for yourself.

They might not always admit it but your instructors may keep some of there favourite techniques back from you. If they gave everything out then people will start to defend against them better. If you are watching, however then you might spot something useful.  Which everyone else has missed because they’ve been talking the whole time.

Hopefully, this BJJ guide has been useful to a few of you and shed some light on BJJ. And remember to keep your eyes out for our next guide.

Why Are There Different BJJ Gi’s And What Separates Them

There are several different BJJ Gi’s and hundreds of companies making them these days. And each Brand seems to offer you something new or different as well. The main types of Gi’s you will find on the market are Gold Weave, Pearl Weave, Lightweight or Ultra Lightweight and Competition.

Gold Weave

Gold Weave is just a heavyweight Gi. It is made from the thickest materials and will be the heaviest Gi you can buy. The benefits of a thicker, heavier Gi are that it becomes harder for people to grab you. Mainly the insides of your wrists and your lapel. This can stop people from controlling you or choking you. Here is the Hayabusa Goorudo 3 Gold Weave Jiu Jitsu Gi, its made with 550-gsm gold spec-weave material, which basically means its stitching is very thick and heavy.

Goorudo 3 Gold Weave Jiu Jitsu Gi in blue

Pearl Weave

The Pearl Weave is a slightly lighter option than the Gold Weave. The main difference is that this Gi allows a better freedom of movement over the Gold Weave. It’s also lighter which means you can move faster. Hayabusa’s Shinju 3 Pearl Weave Jiu Jitsu Gi is made from 500-gsm pearl weave material so you can see the stitching is lighter than the Gold Weave. You can see the Shinju Gi below.

Shinju 3 Pearl Weave Jiu Jitsu Gi in black

Lightweight

The Lightweight Option will be the lightest Gi you can get your hands on. Some companies will refer to this as Ultra Lightweight but they are both the same thing. The Hayabusa Lightweight Jiu Jitsu Gi is Ultra Lightweight for Ease of Movement and Constructed with a 420-gsm Pearl Weave Cotton so it is significantly lighter than both the Gold and Pearl. If you want to find out more about the new Hayabusa Lightweight Gi then click here.

Competition Gi

And finally a competition Gi gives you the thickness of a Gold Weave Gi to make it harder for your opponent to grab you and the lightness of a Lightweight Gi so you can weight in without being worried about your weight. The Hayabusa Pro Lightweight Gi is constructed with a 350-gsm pearl weave cotton. This means it weighs about the same as the Lightweight Gi but has the Thickness of the Pear Weave. The ultimate Competition Gi.

Why we need different BJJ Gi’s

It is good to have several different types of BJJ Gis as it provides variety. It gives people the ability to pick the perfect Gi for themselves and there training. If someone was to be able to move as fast as possible they will need a Lightweight Gi as they are designed for ease of movement. Others may not have the agility to move around the mats fast and instead prefer to go on their backs and a heavyweight may be better for them as its harder for people to grab and control you.
Hopefully, this article has taught you something new and helped you understand more about different BJJ Gi’s. If you like the look of any of the Gi’s you have seen here or want to find out more about them, then click here.

How Long Does It Take To Get A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the newest martial arts around. And still in its infancy when compared to other martial arts. It has come such a long way in a relatively short space of time though and is now one of the most prominent disciplines. Developed by Carlos and Hélio Gracie. It was formed from Kodokan Judo that was taught to the Gracies by students like Takeo Yano, Mitsuyo Maeda and Soshihiro Satake. The brothers eventually created Brazilian jiu-jitsu and it came to be its own martial art. Today I will talk you through getting your BJJ Black belt.

A Brief History

An adaptation of judo and jujutsu, it took the best aspect of both sports and left some of the less effective parts behind and through the experimenting and practising BJJ was born. There are currently 5 belts for students over 16 and 4 for anyone younger. These are White, Yellow, Orange and Green for children and each belt will require four stipes before you can progress to the next level. There has recently been a new colour, grey, added but not all gyms count this.

kids belts

For adults, it goes White, Blue, Purple, Brown and Black. Similar to the juvenile system, you will need to get four stripes before you move on to the next belt generally speaking.

What Sets BJJ Apart From Other Arts

The main difference between BJJ and other martial arts is the time it takes to get your black belt. The generally accepted rule in the community is that it takes 10 years to finally get your belt. Which also works well with the theory that 10 years of training or 10000 hours of deliberate practice are needed to become world-class in any field. It is also up to the instructor to decide if a student is ready for a promotion.

White Belt

White belt is where every new Brazilian jiu-jitsu student starts there adventure. This will be there hardest part of your journey as in the beginning you will have no knowledge and you will pretty much be playing defence for the first few months. Once you get a few submissions down, learn a sweep or two and a few more new guys join you will start to get into the hang of things. If you keep training and showing progress then you should aim for a stripe every 6 months but that is completely at your instructor’s discretion.

Time To Blue Belt: 2 Years

Blue Belt

Blue belt is the second rank in BJJ and this is where you will start to have some fun. You will have new people coming through your gm all the time and lots of new guy means lots of fun. You can start to practise those moves that you have just learned during technique and not worry about being smashed every roll from now on. The IBJJF does states that you must remain a blue belt for a minimum of 2 years before moving onto your Purple. This does not mean that it will take you 2 years though. This is more for dedicated students who train multiple times every day. Blue will be the longest part of your journey and you should hope to get a stripe every 9 months. This is normally the state that separates the people doing it for fun and the more serious students.
You also have to be at least 16 years old to receive a blue belt.

Time To Purple Belt: 3.5 Years

Purple Belt

Purple belt is the where you will start to get respect for the rest of your student. You will get white belts asking you for advice and you can start to discuss new moves and techniques with the higher belts. This is where can start to practise all of those crazy moves you have been watching on YouTube and actually pull them off. Once again The IBJJF requires you to train for a minimum of 1.5 years before you can get your brown. And once again unless you live in the gym this probably won’t be for you. You should get you stripes faster at Purple and aim for one every 6-8 months this time.
The IBJJF requires you to be at least 16 years old and before you can get your purple belt.

Time To Brown Belt: 2.5 Years

Brown Belt

Brown belt is where you pretty much start doing whatever you want with white belts. Most beginners will not be able to come close to tapping you so to still get the most out of your fights you can start to put yourself in challenging situations. Let them pass your guard or get mount on you and try to fight your way back. The IBJJF requires you to remain a brown belt for a minimum of 1 year. Anything for 1-2 year is seen as good at this stage though. Brown belt normally requires five years of dedication and a huge chunk of your time, money and determination, but its all worth it.
You will also need to be at least 18 years old.

Time To Black Belt: 1.5 Years

Black Belt

Well, guys, you have finally made it. Your journey is still not complete though. You may finally have the belt you have been lusting after for the past decade but you still have so much more to learn. You are now at the top of the pyramid and for every 10,000 people that start the sport, only one will get the top honour. Not many people in the world have what you have now. You are now in an elite club which compels respect.
The IBJJF requires that a student be at least 19 years old.

After Black Belt

Every promotion to a new degree in the black belt starts from the day you get promoted. The first, second and third degree will be awarded after three years. The fourth, fifth and sixth grades will take 5 years each. The seventh and eighth will take 7 years each and that is then classes as your red and black belt. The ninth degree or red belt as its known can only be applied for after 10 years. There is also a tenth grade which was given only to the pioneers of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the Gracie brothers: Carlos, Oswaldo, George, Gaston and Helio.

Haburi 2.0 Compression Tops Now Back In Stock

Here at Hayabusa, we wanted to add a rashguard to our range. It had to have all of the attributes of our best gear but with a lower price tag. And that’s exactly what we have done. The Haburi compression line has all of the key features of our best sellers. It comes with a more simplistic design while still making it clear that it is a Hayabusa product.

It provides you with a body forming fit that delivers easy, unrestricted movement. And it has been engineered as a second skin with thermo-regulating tech. This will help to keep you cool and dry, ensuring comfort even under the most strenuous training.

One of its keys features is the thermo-regulating tech that it has been made out of. This helps to optimise your body temperature. So you don’t overheat in summer and it keeps you warm in winter. Allowing you to maintain maximum muscle function and improved performance.

SUPERIOR PROTECTION

Providing superior protection. Haburi rashguards are designed to work as a second skin, protecting you against cuts, scrapes, and rashes during combat. The inner silicone banding around the waist will keep you compression locked down. As a result, it won’t ride up as you move to expose you to injury. And the reinforced stitching will ensure unsurpassed durability, so no holes or loose stitching.

ATHLETIC FIT

The Haburi range comes with an athletic fit which as a result means unmatched fit and comfort. Each Haburi rashguard uses a professional athletic pattern made from a polyester elastane mix for great fit and comfort. This range has been crafted from a fully breathable fabric. The thermoregulating and wicking features will ensure your muscles are engaged and warm while keeping your skin and body dry.

DURABLE

Even though these tops are lightweight they are also very durable and like all of the products we make, we only use the highest quality stitching and craftsmanship. Believe us when we say this rashguard can withstand anything.
