    Different ways of kicking will hurt more. If you bring your leg up and swing it down in sort of an arch and hit at a bit of a downward angle it will generally hurt your shin much less than if you kick at a bit of an upward angle or even straight in.

    I would like to add the caveat of " with proper training and conditioning " .
    I see truepwrz's situation as a lack of both (no offense) .

    I personally think it hurts less because I miss knees and elbows more often while angling the kick down into target .

    Getting more power into an unconditioned leg may not be the best idea .


    Oh and truepwrz ... try hitting the bag a little higher up for a bit , it should be a little softer .

    Well I'm purely referring to my experience kicking the thai bag. I find that if I kick sort of upwards it hurts my shin a fair bit more than if I kick at a downward angle. And of course you really should generally be kicking with the shin pointed at a bit of a downward angle as that shows you're actually turning your hip over.

    Sounds like a good plan , start there . Seriously did you think he was kidding ? Conditioning only feels good if you are a masochist .

    But if you turn your hip over and miss ... you have all this inertia and it makes you spin around .

    You are right about the bag . I thought about it and realized in Hapkido we were using wavemasters which are considerably more forgiving than a standardly filled heavy bag and that was the last time I used round kicks without a MT flavor . Took me a while to get used to normal bags again . I found cutting my kicks downward ( there by increasing the power ) actually caused me to hit higher up on the bag after a few attempts at abusing my right shin on the bottom 12 inches of the bag (not a banana bag or a 6 footer , I have yet to kick one of those neato MT bags that touch the floor ) .

    Here, let me help with reading comprehension.

    today is the first day i started back muay thai, my coach talked to me about me using my instep instead of the shins to kick and keep changing stances was wrong, i was wondering is keeping in one stance and using shin to kick really that important??? I am not questioning my coach but i was just wondering do all pros and amateurs fight like that???

    what, the shin? give it 1 - 2 weeks rest, or take it lightly at least. Once it heals up, it'll get stronger. Rinse and repeat till they turn to iron.

    Just don't go banging away when they're still hurting, you'll be doing more harm than good.
