Talk about getting hit to the head. Check this slo-mo video of a moderately hard hit to the head and then decide if you want this done a multiple times (never mind countless times in your fighting career) to your head - http://youtu.be/zYKpQuq4hsE. I think the issues really start surfacing when you're old and decrepit as we're starting to see with retired American football players - http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/30/sports...&ref=health

Remember you're older for a lot longer than you're young.

That's my point.
It has to take a toll somewhere down the road.
But the sport hasn't been around long enough in order to determine that yet.
Even my (former) karate instructors are all banged up from years of hard training.
Knees, hips, backs, shoulders, neck. You name it.

A cool video. A whole lot of movement for a pretty weak punch. Whre are those guys during the real fights? Anyone check out the taser video?

Check this new study that just came out on when chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE starts showing up in combat sport athletes.
