    1) do body conditioning, iron body or otherwise, get someone to put some 16oz gloves on and smack you around the body, then progress onto smaller gloves, open hand/fists, go slow and be carefull, then get used to be punched in the head, (still workin on both of these)
    Just do some boxing. You'll get smacked enough.

    Percisely. Why inthe name of all that is holy would I want to let someone smack me around without the option of hitting back. I don't know about the rest of you, but it seems strange and perverted to me. If you're not getting hit enough while sparring, you're not sparring right. Simple as that.

    "then get used to be punched in the head, (still workin on both of these)"

    Under no circumstances should you let yourself get punched in the head as a training drill unless you're so intent on making it as a pro (which you don't seem to be) that you're sure you can deal with the inevitable brain damage.

    I found that doing drills to handle deflecting or blocking jabs/crosses worked great. I still blink when I do the "block" with both hands up covering my head like a boxer, but defelction, catch, fade, or shoulder block I keep them open well enough.

    Boxing ownz

    ur sparring needs something extra: learn getting hit hard. ppl naturally can't concentrate once they're hit. see, TKD spars,but we hear stories of TKD guys getting wooped. they also hav eto lear to keep their eyes open when theres a flurry of punches, and tha cna only be learned from getting boxed hard and experience. (i tried this w/ a bag, doesn't work at all cuz the fera isn't there)

    u can only learn to not blink by getting pummeled for real...there is no susbstitute to getting hit (thats what that bag thing is for). Not blinking is very important part of staying calm when trading strikes.

    sure a blink is like .001 seconds, but from experience, when u blink u lsoe more than .001 seconds. u lose rhythm, confidence, etc. so its important to keep ur eyes open!
