    But you can strengthen your neck, upper back and shoulders (i.e. the trapezius muscle, sternocleidomastoid) to reduce the acceleration and deceleration forces.

    The brain, in a knockout punch, is accelerated only after the cranium is accelerated. Movement of the cranium is controlled (and limited) by neck muscles.

    Strong neck = less brain acceleration.

    If your neck is more flexible, that would translate to greater brain acceleration - more freedom of movement of the cranium. Punches wouldn't sting so much, but what doesn't get absorbed by the face may be transmitted to inside the skull.

    i can usually tell the difference between a maori and a samoan. thats after having lived here almost my whole life though. I would say its mostly to do with the way islanders are built (i.e. like tanks) but that isnt the only reason why NZ has a disproportionate amount of top level kickboxers

    Maybe he has a particularly brittle jaw from impacted wisdom teeth? I've had this problem and really need to keep my jaw securely shut in sparring.

    My experience has been if people cant easily shut their mouth and clench their jaw (and keep the point of the chin down) then when they do get hit on the jaw the lower jaw will accelerate smashing into their upper jaw/teeth. The shockwave sends an explosion into the head area above and causes KO's.

    So keeping the jaw securely shut as one "assembly unit" means the force can be rolled with rather than the force dissipating into the jaw.

    So get him to practice keeping the jaw firmly shut in sparring and to check out any obvious dental issues.

    My head hurts just thinking about it. ugh.
    According to their site, yes. Systemans think I lot of crazy ****.

    As I recall, there was also something about how punching like a boxer causes brain damage... to the puncher.

    um, no, no it's not. Rolling UNDER punches might be what you're thinking of.

    I think it was explained with vibration caused by the impact or something

    On a lightly unrelated note, Ive heard that hitting full power the heavy bag with the elbow may end in back pain, even injury, for the vibration. Personally Ive noted a little disconfort after practicing elbows with the heavy bag for a while, in the upper back.

    BTW, can youn explain the difference between rolling with the punches and rolling under the punches? I think I dont get what you mean.
