    On a personal note I did something worse a few years ago. I drank half a bottle of vodka, woke up the next morning and took an impromptu super fight at a grappling tournament 7 hours later. So yeah, grappling with a hang over after not competing for nearly 6 years not a good choice.
    Most of us are our own worst enemy. I have to ask. About that fight, did you go see Ralph before, after or not at all?

    Vodka doesn't do that to me.

    Is Knock-Down Karate the most legit bare knuckle fighting?

    Yes indeed.

    I have been wondering why there aren't more liver-punch KO's in knock-down karate, where bare knuckle punching to the body is the only punching that happens. I wonder if wrapping the hands and wrists significantly increases the power threshold for punches for ergonomic reasons as Kesting has suggested.

    This is an important self-defense question, since most strikers don't run around town with their hands wrapped...
