    Don't think I've ever been punched hard there though.
    When we spar, I know my target. Boobie shots, ftw.

    And if it goes to the ground, titty twister submission.

    Without a doubt. It occured to me right after I typed it that you probably don't flare your elbows like a tard, which would take care of %90 of the issue right off the bat.

    Also, if I box amateur, chest protection is a must. But need something that will fit at least a D size chest.

    Different women seem to be more or less sensitive to boob shots, in my experience. It just doesn't hurt me that much to get hit in the tits, but I know chicks who hit the canvas every time a solid one lands.

    However, if someone was landing shot after shot on the old chesticles, it could build up and leave them pretty battered. A chick I know came out of a grapple-heavy FTR bout with her boobs absolutely black and blue from hard knees. It didn't bother her in the fight, but did affect her training for some time after while they healed.

    However, I think AnnaTrocity's advice on not becoming overly-reliant is pretty sound. I wouldn't wear it too often in training.

    In women's Muay Thai, do fighters ever intentionally throw teeps to the chest? Or is that considered bad sportsmanship/not an effective strategy?

    To my knowledge I think it's not really done out of unspoken mutual respect.

    Good luck with that. If you find anything, let us know. I can never find anything decent to fit D cup. Sports bras totally blow my buget. May i add for all the women reading, the Berlei High Preformance sports bra is the best 50 bucks (or i have ever spent on a bra.

    I dont know much about mauy thai, but whenever i spar with a chick i rarely go for boob shots, it doesn't seem like a bitch move so much as an unecisary one. If she's experienced chances are they wont be really effective.

    I've never been punched in the boob hard, but I used to play soccer and the amount of times i took a ball to the chest boggles the mind, and i never really felt hurt anymore that taking a ball somewhere else. I guess it'd hurt if i got hit well there, but that goes for most places.


    Chaos? Panic?... Disorder??

    My wife is in the D camp and she swears by Under Armour sports bras and can fit the chest protector I linked.

    Get some decent turtle shells and keep your elbows in. We had to wear chest protectors during our first three fights and I have no earthly idea what the point was.

    *edit* Ah, I just saw that you *have* to have it for amateur boxing. Sucks!
