How to tape up your hands before a fight
Let’s go beat someone up! But no seriously, does this prevent pain or something ? What do these bandages actually serve ?
It keeps your bones aligned to prevent injury, compresses soft tissue to make the fist more rigid, and pads the knuckles. Skull bones are sturdier than hand bones, and even if you know what you’re doing there’s a high risk of damaging your metacarpals if you punch someone barehanded. It’s why they recommend if you find yourself in a fight unprepared to bunt their nose with the butt of your palm, because if the other person tucks their head and you end up hitting their forehead instead it’ll do a lot less damage to your palm than your knuckles.

Dude, yeah. This is super important in RL as well! In kickboxing, you never want to hit a bag (or a person) without first taping up your hands. You run a much higher chance of injury without this kind of protection.
Also: in a fight without hand protection in which you want to hit for the face, curl your hand into a fist and then hit the person with the side of your fist, instead of punching knuckles-first. You’re less likely to cause your un-taped hand serious damage that way.
