    if that **** about nerves in your head causing insta-kill is even true then it doesn't happen very often.

    stronger neck is what I've always been told. According to my coaches my neck is the only reason I can block with my face so much.

    I did have another thought on this if you have an aniaomical weakness could it be countered either with a thicker mouthguard or going to a double mouth guard.

    I would imagine a double mouthguard would somewhat negate the problem of being a mouth breather. Are they allowed in all orgs thogh? I've never seen anyone use one

    Double mouthguards don't really help, as far as I have seen; they do help with the concussive aspect though.

    The anatomical weakness is simply the fact that the submandibular nerve is very close the surface at the button, and whacking it causes the reflex we call a KO. It's not insta-kill though, it's insta-sleep. You see it all the time in MMA fights; last night is a good example, so is Silva vs Griffin.

    In regards to your coaches, your neck is the reason you can block with your face, but see how well you can block with the button (not the entire chin, your neck will help with that, but specifically the button point).

    McClaw, if I were you I'd be worried about your nose not your jaw. Much like me you're rather blessed there.

    P.S. I've been using WIPPS (now makers of Brainpad) double mouthpieces for over a decade. Your jaw definitely feels like it's much more solid than when you bite down on a small single. I think they're great, though nowadays there are more types to choose from which I'm not familiar with.

    OP, how's your blood pressure; do you eat before fights, do you smoke? And your metabolism?
    In my experience, people with high blood pressure are really easy to knock out, and people with low blood pressure tire out & are prone to faint from exhaustion (but hard to choke/strike out).
    If it's worrying you, ask your doctor to run some tests. It can be a sign something's outta whack, or a bloodpressure pill can change your whole game.

    What if you have an over or underbite? Would that affect it more? And with one of those, wouldn't it be hard to wear a double mouth guard?

    I don't know for certain what would happen with an over or underbite, but I do imagine the double mouthguard could pose a problem.

    I have a slight overbite and it doesn't bother me, but YMMV.
