    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    When I was younger and a lot more of an idiot I believed this ****. I would do all the conditioning exercises and hit **** with my hands and feet to make them tougher. Which to an extent worked to toughen me up, some. Too much of any thing is bad, though.

    My hands are getting arthritic and I know I will have more problems down the road. If it wasn't for grip fighting in Judo I think they would be in worse shape then they are now. Not that grip fighting is the cure but it helps to keep my hand strength up and stretched out.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    I mean yah, to a extent this **** is legit. I kick thai shin conditioning pads alot and they help. But anyone who thinks that slamming your fist in gravel all day is going to give you some super power hands is a idiot.

    Probably better off slamming there head into said gravel.

    AFAIK when you take their strength to weight ratios into consideration, bone is already stronger than steel.

    So no retarded training required.

    Can you name some of these Thai fighters?
