    Read this thread for the first time today.


    Why would we care what your non-training ass thinks?

    When was the last time you even were hit in training? Oh wait you don't train.

    Shut up.

    Any reason given?

    Yes during some of the old school matches guys heads would hit the ground which would end up in death of serious injury.

    Regardless of whether or not a facemask reenforces bad habits those who haven't trained in forever should keep their poorly informed opinions to themselves.

    This is like me giving basketball coaching advice. Sure I understand the game and the basics of playing. That's it though.



    Edit: didn't know omega was still posting on this thread. My commments have an obvious target though. I too have (rightfully) been such a target.

    KNowledge is knowledge. I had experience in this area, hence my post.

    Is my post incorrect?

    Is the information outdated?

    I normally stay OUT of training topics for the exact reasons you stated.

    LOl. This wasn't directed at you. I was wondering what Jsun's school's rational was. For example safety or liability, etc.

    I wear leather headgear in my school, very similar to what amateur boxers wear.

    That thing is only stopping concussions, not the pain of the shot. If it's loose on your head, it can twist, but having someone strap it on for you solves that problem.

    Does the strap-on fit comfortably?

    If a person earns a graduate degree, be it a M.Sc. or a Ph.D., its never taken back due to inactivity. So why should exerience be any different? Whether it happened 10 mins ago, or 10 years ago, time doesn't diminish the value of one's experiences.

    Case in point, recently I spent an afternoon standing around talking to Ron Edwards, former Canadian middleweight boxing champion, and George Chuvalo, who twice fought Mohammad Ali, over 30 years ago. Need I say any more?
