My Senpei has been doing this method for years. No ill effects yet (and hes a smart guy whos done his research).

Not to mention his shins are like freaking IRON (not exaggerating!).

He jsut walks around all day wacking his shins witha jo staff.

I do this same training only a MUCH smaller scale.

Again, no illeffects yet.

Rather than using a hammer or a rolling pin you might want to begin with a bundle of reeds like wicker or something as these tend not to cause as much trauma. You should also undertake this training carefully and dont try to over do it ir you might hurt your legs permanantly. After this training its important to massage the area thouroughly and if you can find it use some chinese medicine, as this will speed recovery and results.

Someone told me they saw a guy kick an old iron radiator hard as they could and say "i feel no pain" but it got me thinking.
and I came up with one conclusion.
"his legs are like iron now but their gonna have so many problems when he gets older"

In my school, we dont beat our legs with hammers, but smack them with what i believe is bamboo. We also do shin to shin training. It doesnt only damage nerves, it hardens the bone. This can also be done with the forearms.

Show me the medical proof that whacking bones makes them harder.

Thats the way the body is desgined John, Use it or lose it. This is a process of years though and should be done with much moderation. Coral Calcium is very helpfull too, and has wonderous effects on the body. Massaging is important.

How is that crap. What evidence can you present to back up you claim.

An example from my life.

A while back we started playing paintball at night in darkness. After a few months of this our night vision had improved by at least a hundred percent.

It is documented. That Astronauts after spending long durations in space. When they return to earth. Things in the distance are often blurry because they have been in small places for so long their eys have adapted to only being used at short distances.

If your going to dispute me in the future please use some evidence to back it up.

Hi Oto

All I asked for was the medical proof whacking bones made them harder, which is what you claimed (I believe incorrectly) in your post.

You gave no medical proof, still advising people to undertake what I believe to be a poor method of training.

As such I believe your post was crap.

Again, where is your medical evidence to back up your claim.
