Taping your fingers for BJJ

 

One of the great truths in BJJ is that, “Your hands are your rudders and your legs are your engines.”  In  other words, when you are training your legs are your primary source of power whereas your hands guide the machine.  In BJJ if you don’t have your hands to make grips, you cannot navigate effectively.  Anyone who trains regularly with the gi knows how the fingers and hands suffer.  You try to tape your fingers, but alas you end up with more tape wasted than used.  Here are a few videos on how to tape your fingers for BJJ training.

PS.  This is a pic of one of the Miyao brothers (aka the hardest working dudes in BJJ)  you don’t want your hands to look like this!  OUCH…
