    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Pinky Toe Hurts!!

    My pinky toe hurts while hitting the heavy bag. It didnt before but suddenly it started hurting. I rested for two weeks but the pain hast gone away. I dont think its broken since i can walk, train and wiggle it. I am just wondering if my kicking technique is to blame or is there something wrong with my toe.

    Your pinky toe?

    Sounds serious, better get a CAT scan.

    Providing the type of kick you are talking about would help.

    I'm assuming it's a side kick, and I would say hit with your heel, not your pinky toe.

    What kick is the one causing this? And with what part of your feet are you hitting the bag??
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I broke my pinky toe in Judo class a couple months ago. Now, occasionally when I do kicks on the heavy bag or if it gets bumped in sparring, it will start to swell up again.

    It can take 6-8 weeks for it to fully heal if it's broken.

    (I can relate to the pain. Breaking my pinky toe hurt worse than both times breaking my middle toes. (I have long toes, so they just stick out there waiting to get broken.))

    Its from hitting roundhouse kicks. I think my pinky toe area sticks out a lil bit when i hit the bag and takes some of the impact. I have been taping it up and that helps a lil just wondering if anyone else had this problem.

    I am hitting the bag with my shin.

    Yes tai chi is next and then i will take the real deadly TKD.

    Yes. One-third of my toes are in constant pain.

    Yet somehow I manage to carry-on, day after day, in the face of all this adversity.

    You're hitting the bag with your shin and your pinky toe is also making impact? That's some toe.

    Do you control your foot position when you strike with the shin, or do you just let it flop around on the end of your leg?
