    for those with experience to most accurately informyou you need to tell if you plan on competing or spar in the gym only.

    it's actually labelled disease most of the time, as in "Parkinson's Disease Foundation" and "Parkinson's Disease Society"

    I called it a degenerative disease b/c that's precisely what it is.

    Do a check, such as online...medical sources and websites also call it Parkinson's Disease.

    tourette's would be properly called "syndrome"

    I would like to have some amature fights for the experience. i don't intend by any means to make a living out of it. i just wanted to make sure i wasn't going to end up with some kind of irreparable damage when all i wanted was some experience/learn how to take a punch etc. thanks for all the input from everyone on here. i just put this up last night. Thanks.

    Then you'll most likely be fine.

    If you have a good defense, you don't have to worry much about brain damage. I regularly compete in semi-contact kickboxing and have been for three years now. I don't have any brain damage, only the new development that a hit to the face doesn't really hurt me anymore and I can laugh it off. Ring fighting is a psycological sport too. If you can sucker the oponent into letting you set the pace of the match, the oponent just lost. Don't hit with the last two knuckles. only hit with the first two otherwise you are looking at broken knuckles. Do NOT headhunt. Headhunting leaves you open. If you are fighting a headhunter, cover your face closely and attack their body. That's about what I've learned over the years.

    I had a very short stint in boxing(7 years), so I was very fortunate to come away with very few injuries. My nose got broken several times and I had 2 ribs that got cracked again, after they had been cracked in other training, but that is about the worst it got. No big cuts, no serious brain damagae, no detached retina,......

    Now, I have several guys I know who have some brain damage from boxing and a few who have had small detached retina, but the big difference is that they fought from a very early age and they were fighting every month.

    Umm, should I worry about getting my brains bashed in?

    You should be fine. They keep the sport pretty safe
