    Jaw= KO Button. Not much you can do about it. Really just try and get hit in other parts of your head instead. and thats something that you just get used to.

    I do that to people sometimes. I'll tell you whats really funny. When someone starts to swing their leg around for a kick push kick them in the kicking leg thigh, it's hilarious.

    Taking a solid shot in the jaw is gonna rock you, pretty much no matter how used to getting hit you are. I don't think you can really condition your brain to smashing into the walls of your skull. I've heard that your face can get conditioned to a degree as far as cutting goes, in that if you've taken more shots to the face, it becomes more durable and thus less likely to be cut or bruised up by punches. I can believe this, since there are some fighters that I know of who basically never show any visible damage on their faces (like Buakaw por Pramuk, who's had well over 100 matches).

    I suppose you do get used to the shock factor of getting punched in the face after a while, though.

    Seeing as the thread is sidetracking itself, and as the start was on the ancient MT: what the hell is Tony Jaa doing that's supposed to be MT? I saw a clip from protector that looked like Aikido or something. Aside from the wushu elements of working in movies, is there any background to having such flash and unnecessary motions in MT? I mean, he turns his elbows towards each other and uses both to hit a guy in Ong Bak - please tell me there's nothing like that in "traditional" MT.

    There are a lot of pretty silly, pure flash techniques in "muay boran". I basically think of muay boran as the pro wrestling of Thailand.

    One thing that wasn't mentioned Dave, keep your guard up and try not to get hit there in the first place ;)

    Relying on your hands to protect your head is entirely overrated.
