Hi, I'm new to Krav Maga, having gone to about 9 classes (twice a week). A couple weeks ago, while doing the 360 defense, I caught my left hand against my partners arm and my wrist got pushed side-to-side (not front to back) pretty good. It definitely didn't feel broken, but it did develop a quarter size bruise, which went away after a couple days. I kept going to classes, wearing an ace bandage, but had trouble with pushups, heel strikes, choke defenses, etc with that hand. After about two weeks, I broke down and saw a hand/wrist surgeon, who diagnosed just a minor sprain.
Unfortunately, I do have to take a few weeks off. My question is does anyone use any sort of wrist protection while they train.
