My sports Kara let me down :-(

I bought this tiny little Kara for playing sports, but today when warming up before a game, I caught the frisbee and it dug my kara into my wrist and caused me to bleed for a while. I was liking wearing my Kara while playing sports and representing my identity on the field, but I need to find another solution. At least my Kaysh and my Turban still represent me well.

Wear a wrist band on top of it or wrap some tape under the wrist in order to avoid the digging.

Actually, I had similar problem with that type of kara. It has Takht shri Hajur Sahib stamped on it with kanda on both side. It is like band that you get when you become professional engineer, only big in diameter. Since then I had no such problem with sports or playing tabla.

ditto to what rana said! wear a comfy cottony elastic wrist band ontop of your kara. they can be found at any sports store. works like a charm.

get well soon! :)

I have see some NBA players put tape on their ears when they play basketball to cover their bling bling diamond studs, of course!!! LOL

I think that tape should work pretty well for this with a wrist band, of course. Keep playing khalsa ji and keep representing. lol

I hope you still wear the Kara. I had a similar injury, but like the Kara, we're mad of tough stuff!

Take care my brother.
