    I break and tear the skin over my knuckles all the time . Working on cars , yard work , hitting the bag without gloves ... all sorts of dumb **** . I just try to be careful and keep everything clean and dry .

    Peroxide and bandages should be be your friends for a while . I know nothing about this Liquid Skin stuff I have not tried it yet .

    OP you need an instructor badly .
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Liquid skin is really cool ****. It burns like a mofo, but it covers cuts and abrassions pretty nicely. For example, you get mat burn, drop some of that good **** on it and you are good to go.

    You should take a look at it when you get the chance.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    1) Ross is using dramatically larger gloves than you are.
    2) on the speed drills he is not hitting that hard.
    3) I meant get a good coat of liquid skin on it and keep working out.

    I keep hearing great stuff about it . I will check it out when I restock the first aid kit here in a couple months . High-Tech cheats like that should burn like a bitch . Hell if it didn't hurt , I wouldn't think it was working right .

    hmmmm 20 minutes on google and I am much wiser .

    link to wiki


    * edit *

    ok fine more like 8 minutes or whatever ... doesn't matter .

    Protip: Apply NewSkin in thin coats and build it up to about 4 layers if it is in a high contact area.

    Thanks a lot.
    Didn't notice that he was using larger gloves.
    Thanks for the "protip" too.

    Liquid skin is a lifesaver if you do barefoot karate with lots of explosive shifting against the floor. When the friction burns the callous on your ball/big toe off, leaving you with a gaping patch of raw, pink fetus skin, brush some liquid skin over it, medical tape it, you can keep going till you're done and home to fix yourself properly.
