    Going back to the original question, you can add sand to your bag, whne it's mixed with cloth it settles to the bottom so the bottom of the bag gets harder so you can condition the shins with low kicks while not knackering your hands.

    Ah. I may be looking for a new gym soon though.

    As for how the stick thing started... In Kali class, while the instructor was demonstrating, I'd fidget and rattle my sticks on my shins. Not too hard, but with occasional bruising. A couple of experiences in sparring after I'd been doing it a while seemed to indicate that my shin conditioning had improved because it appeared to hurt me a lot less than my opponents.

    Trust me, you don't want to **** around with your shins. It sucks being under 30 yet unable to run or jog for extended periods of time.

    Yarr. If I've damaged them I'd say it's more likely to be from some traumatic shin to shin contact I had in highschool, which in all likelyhood has healed by now. But if all I can get from continuing it is injuries then yeah, time to stop.

    I may have to try that. Any downside to it?

    Whaaa? Tell that to Poidog... He took this method seriously last weekend when he nailed my shin with a stick. Normally, I wouldn't say nothin' but the damn gash in my leg will not close and seeps blood all day long. Anybody got super glue?

    Therefore, I would not use a stick.

    Original Question:
    Well, I would go with either finding a new heavy bag (ask your instructor where he got his?)
    Or do the Duct tape method

    Stick Training Question:
    Well I did the stick training and I officially have no feeling in my shins....it sucks.

    on the stick-conditioning/beating on your shins with stuff...

    I've also seen conditioning programs similar to iron palm, where you have a bag of beans (to start out with) and you whack your shins with that. I think you're also supposed to whack the rest of your body, for that matter. I'm wondering if those are potentially harmful.

    Anyone?
