How do they accomplish this? I don't think the face or chin can be conditioned. I believe that this "conditioning" is just getting the person used to taking a blow to the face.




I saw with my eyes an hold sifu stand very powerfull hit on the chin and cheeks; when someone asked how he did that change argument and did not give any exaplanations. This made me realise that lots of techniques in katas explained ridiculously by some instructors were taught because inherited by teacher that did not wish to share the secrets of their family karate and pushed me to check applications to the source. Sadly to admit many instructors in western world, japan and also in okinawa, the young one, have been studies karatedo (diluted version of karatejitsu or okinawa te-the real deal)
