Did you know that there is actually an art to tying your leg wraps. They must be firm, yet not constrictive. You don’t want them too tight so that they cut off your blood circulation nor too loose that they fall off. They need to follow the natural contours of your leg muscle as you move.
Tying leg wraps can be time consuming, but it can also be a pre-practice meditation, a time to focus your energies on the task ahead. Learning to use these authentic leg wraps is an adjustment at first, but there is such great value in learning a traditional method, especially in Kung Fu. It gives you the direct cultural experience and satisfaction, focusing your energies before practice and honoring the ways of our martial ancestors.
