    I was high roundhousing one at Dick's sporting goods the other day and fell down and cut up my elbows really bad on the carpet.

    So you're saying that when the thais get injured they just kick the heavy bag? a lot?

    Just because the thais don't do something doesn't mean it's not a good idea.

    They're still doing long runs, which modern sports science says doesn't really help much in a fight. They thais kick everyone's ass because they train very hard and have lots of fight experience, but it doesn't mean their methods can't be improved upon.

    if they get injured they might put on an ice pack.

    im just saying is that clearly these fancy shin conditioning methods are not nessersary.



    here's what i believe:

    the best thais kick everyones ass not just because they train so hard. but because of thier mentality.

    the pain is never diminished by preparation but learning to effectively deal with and stay focussed whilst in a lot of pain is what serperates the champions from the rest. in muay thai.

    The Best option is to not train in a martial art that requires you to damage your own body.

    There is no martial art I know of that will allow you not injure your body to a certain extent, and yet be effective as a martial art.

    Boxing - brain damage, hand damage, body gets punched a lot (not sure if it'll lead to long term problems)

    Muay Thai - brain damage (punches/elbows to head), but not as bad as boxing I guess, shin damage (shin to shin/knee clashes), possible broken ribs, knee joint damage (inner and outer leg kicks, kneeing the bag over and over).

    This is applicable to most full-contact standup arts.

    BJJ - dislocated parts here and there, cauliflower ears, injuries to elbows, ankles etc.

    Judo - being slammed over and over and over, I'm sure the internal organs take a beating

    Oh......I see you do _ing _un..........forget what I said.

    damage ? weightlifting causes damage to your muscles which then makes them grow.
    the same principal applies to martial arts. when you take a beating it makes you tougher over time.



    I heard a weird theory from a proffesional kickboxer in chiangmai

    he said that over time kicking the heavy bag causes hairline factures in your shin bone with then fill with calcium deposits makeing your shin harder and over a long time actually make your bone GROW.

    weird.

    I'm sorry its just i used to practise muai thai.(my Brother used to go and train in Thailand) and it's alwas been my opinion that the clashing of shins in Mai Thai training/ fighting is one of the stupidest things in Martial Arts.

    Its just a ridiculous technique. All these low kicks can be absurbed with the soft tissue parts of the legs, bone aginst bone in this manner is just retarded.(and it hurts like a bitch)

    Yes its true you pick up injuries training any martial art if you train hard enough, however it's my opinion that it's not worth training techniques that do your body damage as opposed to having a positive effect.(ie cardiovascular fitness, muscle strengthening etc.)
