    point being, for you and whiteshark, et al, don't you want to know which historical methods you've been taught are meaningful? Which of them could be optimized, or dropped? I plan to teach someday, I'd really like to teach my students only true things.

    Agreed. I would like to have all the BS filtered out.

    Hand conditioning has worked for me.

    A gradual increase in impact force over the years has resulted in being to hit hard objects harder without pain in the striking area.

    Callouses, bone density, nerve desensitivity ?

    I know my right hand could take much more without pain than the left. That is, until a motorcycle wreck left me with a broken right wrist.

    Using a lefty stance while my right had time to heal started to bring the left more in line with the right in relation to hand conditioning. This was over an extended period of time due to the extent of the damage.

    The hands show no problems in dexterity.

    Although not a scientific study, it is a long term observation.

    Like most things in life, hand conditioning should be practiced in moderation.

    First. What exactly qualifies anyone here, pro or anti, to conduct any sort of scientific experiment? Because until someone showing some qualifications, this is all just conjecture and pontification. This is especially true of the thread starter who has deemed himself capable of interpreting the results by starting the thread.

    Second. Has anyone bothered to contact NASA? Considering the changes in bone density that happen between Earthside and space, they would be an authority on the subject of regaining or increasing bone density.

    There actually is at least annecdotal evidence for this (the dying, not the meridians). Black Belt magazine did a piece on all the losses of prominant Karateka to heart trouble in the 90's.

    Well considering that we have only 1 volunteer, and that I have only 2 hands that can be independently tested, this is the simplest experimental design. Remember, this would never fly for publication, but we may be able to do it in a way that is convincing to this community. If we had a grant, and clearence to use human subjects we could do a real study. Do you have an actual problem with the logic of the design, given our limitations?

    No I don't have any problems with it so far. It would still be nice to perhaps get some kind of peer review before it happens as a form of sanity check. Agree it's not something that'll end up in a medical journal but still the more methodical and careful this is done, the better the results and reception IMO. Hell I might even be willing to participate. Is this just the hands? Is there any particular set methodology to be used, perhaps something from Dale?

    WTF? We show our qualifications to the mods and get a tag. What more do you want? I'm not claiming to be an expert on bone density, but I can read (or write) a scientific paper, and design an experiment. Is anything more required here?
