    Well I think the logic behind it is that when you hit something hard and your bones get damaged, the body heals them and strenghtens (spelling) them, I think.

    Like makes that particular part a bit stronger so it doesn't get damaged again so easly, of course I'm pulling this out of my ass because I have no idea if it works like this, it could also be that by doing it you get more resilient to pain.

    Either way I think its just best to eat well and drink a lot of milk and stuff, it will probably make your bones stronger then punching lead.

    You are right, but if you damage the bones enough, they will grow back in strange and interesting shapes.
    Karateka used to thrust their hands into sand to try and toughen the striking surfaces of their hands. Too much of even that caused damage to the bone structure.
    I don't think hitting a bag of lead shot would make your strikes more powerful, it would only toughen your hands.
    Lifting a sack of lead, now....

    So not only do you get a sub-optimal skillset, you get to damage your body while learning it?

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    No it actually does because of the breathing techniques you use while hitting the bag.

    If you hit a punching bag does your strikes not get harder?

    There's a whole thread on Iron Hand with explanations that make much more sense than anything an idiot like you could ever say.

    Go read it.

    I always had the impression that heavy bags were to simulate striking an opponant while simultaniously conditioning your fists to the same amount of punishment they would recieve if you were actually hitting someone.
    If I am wrong, please correct me, Der.
    I trust you more than Shaichiaorules.

    yes, that makes alot of sense, trust somebody in TKD over someone whose roommate and sparring partner is doing iron palm training.

    I got off of the other threads because everyone is dumb as hell and wont have a legitimate coversation, then I come over here to give people info on something I personally see everyday, and I have real knowledge on and people still talk ****.

    **** it I wont tell anyone **** anymore. This fucking website is dumb as **** anyway.

    Your supposed to be getting the bs of martial arts out on this site, but so far that is all I have seen on it.

    Your "your" should be "you're". As in "good thing -you are- reading for that."
