    I think this is the best so far.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    I do that to- a month ago my youngest brother and our cousin bought 2 pairs of 10oz gloves and we all "box" (none of us has any formal training in a striking art) at least once a week. Last week I was sparing with my brother who btw is taller than me, has a significant reach advantage and much better cardio. After fighting a few minutes, and getting elbowed in the process I got into clinch an without thinking koshi gurumed him into kesa gatame. After a couple of my hammerfists our cousin jumped on me and they both proceeded to GnP me. I escaped but was to gassed to continue the sparring.

I take this to mean that I have low hit points. The only solution I can propose is even more sparring and even more getting punched in the brain, to beat every shred of weakness out me.
    You have a weak point of taking hits to the head. You have a glass jaw. Your proposed solution is to take more hits to the head, further brain damage to get rid of your glass jaw?

    Every birthday for the past couple of years has been punctuated by being thrown by everyone in my Judo class. My 23rd birthday it was over 40 people.
    I do not aspire to be great, or even good, I hope to suck a little less then last class.

    More or less. Specifically, try to get the hang of rolling with punches and not eating them full force (or, ideally, at all).

    Thai shorts with flames on them give +2 to CON. You didn't think we all wore them because they're stylish, did you?

    Also, I got married and went on honeymoon in Belize for my birthday this year.

    congrats but what did you do to celebrate? make it epic.

    For example: On my 21st, i went out to a nice dinner with my friends, pretended to be in a rush afterwards, ushered them all into the car (i was driving), locked the doors and proceeded to fart loudly. My best friends (and girlfriend) just screamed and clawed at the doors while slowly inhaling my fart. Best Birthday Ever.

    this is vastly different than trying to take more punches. work on your slipping and head movement, and keep your footwork light to fight at the range you want.

    usually i just eat myself stupid with friends/family on my birthday, but this past year i really just didn't do anything.
