    I had a Muay Thai class and I was training with my instructor. He was holding two pads and I was just throwing whatever he wanted me to (hooks, straights, cross, etc) He kept asking for a cross and after each throw, he yelled "Harder! Harder! Cmon, Tae Kwon Do students are supposed to know how to throw a punch!" I got real exhausted and then threw a real hard cross with him really stepping into the block. Well I went at a bad angle and messed up my wrist. I didn't tell him of course, just started throwing wussy crosses, so he switched me up to leg kicks.

    Its not terribly messed up, just a real light sprain but I got a slight problem. I typed this whole thing up mostly with my left hand and pecking with the right. I gotta go to work tomorrow and dunno how that's gonna work cause I'm sort of a programmer :hs:

    Get a splint, do not hit anything or use that hand/arm for any heavy stuff for two weeks (I know that sounds like a lot, but seriously. Taking time out now > recurring injury). This is extremely important, do not overlook it.


    From now on tape your wrists or use wraps (like you should), and make sure to keep a real tight fist when you're punching. I sometimes forget to do this, and the looseness of the forearm will allow my hand to bend in bad ways and I injure myself. Wraps also are extremely important, and just to reiterate, because I feel it can't be said enough, fists tight!
