any tips on how can i strengthen it??

i once sparred with a guy who's much bigger than me, i guess he's two times my body weight.. what made things worst is that he's a 2nd dan black belt, and im just a blue belter.. to cut things short, i cheated on our sparring.. what else can i do?? i already had my back on the wall,and yet he kept on kicking me?!

so what i did is i used my elbows to block all his kicks..

and then after our sparring, i noticed,that he didn't even bother bout his shins.. man, i was so impressed!

would you please share to me some knowledge on how can i strengthen my shins?? thanks

Martial arts secret not taught to mere bluebelts ... Just suck it up and pretend it doesn't hurt in front of lower ranking students. Wait till you get home and have your wife rub it down with some tiger balm... [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif[/IMG]

Seriously, the only way I know to toughen up your shins is to use them. Kick stuff, i.e. heavy bag, opponents, small trees ala Van Damme in "Kickboxer" or whatever movie that was... Block your opponents kicks with them. Or, buy some shin pads to wear when sparring.

How is blocking kicks with your elbows cheating?

I'm not sure what disturbs me most in that story.

1) The black belt who was stupid enough to keep attacking when the opponent had reached the wall

2) a school that teaches that elbow blocks are cheating

3) a student that would resort to cheating

get a crow bar and roll it against your shins, do this while watching tv for like 20 minutes each day for a 3 weeks then up the time to 30 minutes, go up in time every 3 weeks. Grind it in so you have some pain but not to much. Use a baseball bat if you dont got a crowbar.

using elbows isnt cheating at all- in ITF, since footpads area must- its probably the reason the invented footpads,so that ppl who kick midsectiosn dont get hit with elbows

back to the shins, foam shin pads are like 6 or 7 bucks maybe 10 bucks but no more!! any brand will do, shins have a very very high number of nerve endings which is what makes them so painful when hit, kicking small trees lightly is a good idea, but id go for the baseball bats, its safe and it works!!! Muay Thai fighter kick large trees......... and they put their shins thru baseball bats....

finally a 2nd degree who is clobbering a blue belt against tha wall needs a good clouting from the master/grandmaster/instructor...... Self Control is among the 5 tenents of TKD u know!
