Yes, yes it does. Train muay thai for a while and it won't be as bad. Basically you just have to not be a ***** and deal with it.

Yes and hit your shins repeatedly with a meat tenderizer untill bleeding and then rinse and repeat untill you can't walk. Then when you get kicked in the shins you can remember what that felt like and it won't seem so bad.

I try to do simple things like heavy bag worki, but the hardest I've tried is to roll a wooden pin on my shin as hard as I could stand. Banging shins at training is the best, but make sure you move with the kick to take some of the sting out. Otherwise you will enjoy a sound much like two baseball bats colliding! (It feels like it too...)

Kick the thai pads....a lot.
Kick the heavy bag...a lot.
Kick the bottom of the heavy bag (where it's dense)...a lot.
Spar with shin pads...a lot.
Spar without shin pads...a little bit.
Come fight time aggression and adrenalin will mean that shin blocks don't hurt as much as in normal training (unless your shin actually breaks).
The next day however...expect some pain. :)

Oh and block with the top part of the shin where the bone is thickest. Not the middle bit where it's thinest.

Kick **** with your shin every chance you get, but not hard enough to break it. It takes time but the pain won't be as bad after a while. Also pad work helps tremendously

lot of interesting replies and only a few hostile ones, thank alot. i kind of assumed you'd kick a lot of crap to get your shins tougher, but i didnt know if there was some technique to make it go faster, or less painful.
