    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Last time I was in need of some bone hardening I just dressed up my old lady in a school girl outfit and.... oooops, wrong forum. Um, yeah, what I meant to say was a... just kick a bag or something. Yeah, that's it.

    Quick question...does weight lifting (lifting real heavy) increase bone density? I read that on a couple of web sites, but I was wondering if that's the case.

    Other than that, I'm going to echo the heavybag/kicking pads advice. Just don't use rolling pins, or kicking concrete pillars/metal poles, to condition your shins.

    It is rather difficult to condition your knees to absorb this kind of impact, whilst in Muay Thai my shins are being reshapen and the nerves deadened in order to make them a more efficient killing machine, :wrestlera however it is still agony when I catch my knee on their shin.
    When I did TKD, because I was chambering the kicks before unleashing them, it enabled me to take into account any positional changes my opponent made so if he stepped in or adjusted his guard, I would change/pull the kick to accomadate that movement and my knees would very rarely come into contact with the person I was sparring
    Possibly the problem is with your technique rather than your soft, pathetic bones. :icon_bigg

    Yes, squats and deadlifts will do it, over time.

    can you please tell me why I shouldn't use the pins, or kick metal, etc?

    Well, it's usually my shins that take the impact, rather than my knees, but as far as it being a problem with my technique, this may be the case. I know I don't chamber my roundhouse kicks if I'm trying to hit the body quick and hard. I feel like the kick isn't as fast if I chamber it. Do you have any suggestions?

    yup, it's true. interesting sidenote, Gene Rychlak reports that whenever he unracks 1000 lbs on bench press he can feel his bones flexing.

    someone else will explain why its better not to like hit your shins with bottles and stuff better than i can- just go into your dojang early and kick the heavyest bag they have with your shins- over time this will condition them as much as you need

    I'm gonna chime in with the cool kids. Yes, resistance bearing does increase bone density.

    Why do you want your bones harder?
