    TKD ruined my knees that way. I'm only 16 and I have to pay super-special attention to my knees when I warm up because they start to hurt a little when you put significant pressure on them (biking, squatting, even walking down stairs).

    I went to a KB advice site years ago, they said never extend more than 85%. For the obvious joint risks you guys mentioned. Also they said if you want to hit with your body weight its not possible in the last 15% of reach. Eg. try holding out a weight, if your arm is in closer you tend to use bigger muscles and have more power, out further less muscle mass is able to be used.

    When doing anything sport and/or athletic (martial arts are a given) you have heard of this wonderful invention called knee pads right? Tust me, they are a God send.

    Dido, it was those damn autobonds [sp]. I couldn't walk right for months, BUt, shoot, I got lucky when I was required to be on a roadbike for 30min a day (15 in the morn & 15 in the eve) for about 11 weeks (easy street terrain). The pain went away. But stupidly, I decided to practice air autobonds last week and my knee hurts again. It desnt feel as bad anymore. I have to ride ten mins to get to campus several times aday tho.
    Supposedly swimming lots will help too.

    Im assuming i haven;t said anything knew.

    Oh. The only fitness kickboxing classes I had ever seen were exclusively pad/bag work. I can see how doing it on empty air could be detrimental.
