This is a point I've never entertained. Interesting.
Have you seen some serious injuries from your students and what were their circumstances?
I am very curious.
Edit: 4 spelling

Its true man, any heavy headgear can cause this. You see it most with the large headgear used in boxing practice which tends to twist and cover your face also."All warfare is based on deception." -Sun Tzu, ca. 400BC
Reverse punch Kiaii!!!

Are these face shields any better than face masks, with regards to causing neck injuries?
Does anyone know why the pankration people selected a face shield over a face mask?
Was it just so that they could use the Top Ten headgear as well?

Perhaps you should, instead of letting your ego dictate your neg-repping in reply, read what I wrote and recognize that given that there are plenty of people with actual contemporary experience creates a situation where your opinion isn't needed.
You can't balance the pros and cons of training with and without certain gear given the simple fact that you don't, and haven't in a long time, train. When did you? How long? In what? As I recall the answers to these questions are pretty lacking, even moreso than my feeble experience.
In short this is a martial arts website, and you're not a martial artist.

We shattered one of those masks 2 years ago.
The neck injury tends to be cumulitive because the body has to compensate for the extra weight and displaced area the mask covers.

Just curious here:
How heavy is heavy? Got an example of the ones you guys use?
I never had that happen to me at my old WC place on the occasions we used headgear.
My neck was only sore from getting punched in the head, which I still haven't fixed. :)Surfing Facebook at work? Spread the good word by adding us on Facebook today! https://www.facebook.com/Bullshido

You act like his post on this thread was some great sin.
Actually, to respond to you Dochter, I would have neg repped you for making such a poor trolling post but you had already been neg repped apparently so I decided not to further neg rep you. Otherwise I frown on retaliatory neg repping for no reason save for retaliation.

Raven is not a practicing martial artist. He has not been one for awhile. His experience prior to that was reported to be negligible. He is not a martial artist or even an aspiring one. Instead he is a fan. His opinion carries as much weight on any MA topic as Blade Windu's should. If he makes a declarative comment (regardless of veracity) on something he should be called on it. Otherwise we are allowing Bullshido to exist on this site.
I may not be able to do much against bullshido off site, I certainly can call it here though.
Now there are of course obvious situations where critical thinking can lead to the correct answer (as is the obvious case here). That doesn't mean any jackass should hold out their opinons as definitive.
Many legitimate experts on fighting topics have bemoaned this as well. I've decided to actually call people on it when I see it. I may not be much of a fighter myself but I know a pouser when I see one.
