Zinc Oxide Tape has long been used by Boxers for strapping up hands to go under the gloves. The aim is not to have padding for your hands, but to provide support and stability for the joints. If everything is held in place it helps prevent against injury. No injury means you can training for longer and more consistently.
Every coach or trainer has a different way to wrap the hands. Over time you’ll find your own way to do it. However, it is done, make sure you find a way that feels comfortable and protects your had. For professional fights there are regulations into how much tape you can use and the placement of it, so make sure you know them before prepping for a fight.
This smaller, more open gauze style zinc oxide tape can also be used for preventing or aiding other injuries on the body. Strapping fingers, ankles, etc. It is also good for help to fix dressing in place to protect them while training. It tears easily lengthways and width ways, so it’s flexible for your needs.
“This all about preventing injury, so if your not sure what your doing. Find a good coach or instructor to show you how to do it ”

We have a few different options for posting your items at Enso Martial Arts Shop. Prices vary depending on the overall order, weight, size etc. The checkout page will automatically workout the possible options for you.
We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Royal Mail 2nd Class signed - Pretty slow service but will get there eventually. We will try and post it the same day the order comes to us, but not always possible for us. More than likely we will post the next day or day after that. Only possible for small lightweight items, as heavy items are more expensive than UPS.
UPS Standard - Order before 12pm and we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next day. If you order after 12pm we can still pack it and have it ready but it is less likely to be collected the same day (still possible though, depends when the UPS man comes) and will arrive the day after that.
UPS Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
