    I've been boxing for 2 years now and I'm sick of it. I love the sport itself but my wrists just can't handle it. Every time I train seriously I end up injuring my wrists

    Anyway, the ones they offer here are Aikido,Judo and Jiujutsu (No BJJ unfortunately)

    Judo's kuzushi (breaking of balance) may be a bit harsh on the wrists sometimes..

    I did an osoto gari the other day and my right wrist (previously injured) made this huge crack sound and was pain like hell.

    What this guy said.

    I this summer initially was gonna choose either BJJ or Judo and now end up doing both as well as working with my school's wrestling club.

    If there's no BJJ then I would be careful of other JJ styles because there are some that happen to be self defence and work quite a lot on small joint manipulation for extra leverage, which just so happens to include your wrists.

    you should learn how to punch properly, then you might stop hurting your wrists.

    But bjj is a good grappling art to learn

    Do Judo. It's the only one of them that is has consistent instruction and live training. You wrists will get stressed in any of them, but it's different from the impact of boxing.

    Out of that selection, Judo will be a clear choice for most.

    you should learn how to read properly, then you might stop sounding like an ass.

    To OP's question, Judo.

    Judo will toughen up your wrists. Grip fighting is probably going to improve your wrists for boxing bro.

    Good luck.

    No brainer, Judo. But watch lots of old Seagal movies too.
