    Sooooooo......I was rolling on Monday and somehow I ended up breaking the little toe on my right foot. I got up after getting schooled by a purple belt ( :big grin: ) and noticed that my foot really HURT!

    I was curious about what type of tape you guys use to secure fingers/toes. I was just gunna roll by the local sporting goods place and pick up some fabric based hockey tape and bind the last couple toes together to keep the little one from flexing all over the place.

    cliffs: jiu-jitsu is fun....broken toes suck.

    I was using thin medical tape, but I was using it around my big toes not to tape two together.

    It should work though.

    Bubble tape!


    Fabric hockey tape worked...it was working well until one of the guys tried to force me off of him and I dug my toes into the mats to keep my base...that hurt.
