What do you mean by hand conditioning? Like, Iron Palm training or something? That really only screws up the structure of the hand in the long run anyway. Itís easier just to not hit with the hands. People who train boxing can use their elbows and knees to hit with. One elbow is worth about 4 or 5 punches anyway.
How long is a long run?
Cant understand the easier not to hit with the hands part.
Been using bare knuckle now for 30 years still got good hands can still hit hard and fast and boxing yep I used to box but using bare knuckles isnt quite the same as using gloves.
Defensive as opposed to offensive?
Isnt attack the best form of defence?
I use my knees head elbows thigh kicks but 1 of my bare knuckle punches is worth a lot of elbows.
any how enough of this ego gratification.
I believe your a grappler?
Just started training with an excellent wrestler/ju jitsu guy as well as trad goju
The guy isnt particuler big or impressively strong but the skill level is excellent. Goes back to I think what ju jitsu should be?
Using the opponents strengths?
The good thing as well is he is also a bare knuckle hitter type, amongst other things.
