responding to roc fight's first post:
the bones in the body are supplied with blood by capiliaries in order to grow and maintain themselves conditioning the hands causes fractures on a very tiny scale, ones that are miniscule and you cannot notice,(im not talking about cracking your hand and mashing it into a cube like other fools have described above by this) this increases the density of the bone as the body deposits calcium to mend the small fractures and the hand will develop more capiliaries to supply the bone, conditioning the hand isnt something you can do for a year to get the strength you want then leave it as the capiliaries will waste away when theyre not required leaving you with as many as you started with and since the bone is then not being fed anymore than it was originally its density will decrease back to the original amount, all this takes place underneath the tendons and not damaging them in the process, to my knowledge you could only damage the tendon by literally braking the bone as ajacks described a broken bone could cut the tendon and leave you with a permanently mamed hand.( im guessing that a severed tendon does not mend as my grandfather severed his and was never able to fully close his hand for the next 80 years of his life)

Skinny Ninja here. Only have one question, one statement.

1. I'm a thin dude. No ham fist. Does that mean my knuckles are more exposed when in a fist?

2. I once, when I began MA, believed I knew everything. I tried breaking a board without any conditioning or even drinking freaking milk - no super knuckle of stone, just a big ridge down my middle knuckle that aches after training or sparring.

Kids, dont break stuff. Especially yourself.

Been doing body-conditioning for years... koteiate (excuse spelling). Okinawan tradition and method. Used to harden the tools.. That way, maximum power developed by relaxed punch/kick and really no tightening of the fist used.. used to 'punch through' the target. If your tools aren't strong enough, can damage yourself.

This takes quite a long time. No enlarged knuckles, callouses, etc.. rather plain looking... except when you hit or block something!


If unsure how to do this, seek your sensei's advice. I know of some styles that don't use this method... wimps :0

Dude,

Your supposed to have callouses on your knuckles. that makes them harder (obviously) you just have to do it the right way.

BTW my bag is now about 150lbs now and half full of sand and im fine with it and, as a mater of fact, I dont even use gloves eny more. I just use hand wraps that are wraped in such a way that it exposes the knuckles and supports more of the wrist. so im bangen my knuckles till they turn red and it hurts realy good to. I have no regrets of doing what im doing now.

Box more, kick less. Drink a damned good gallon of milk a day. Repeat.

Calouses are just a sign that youve damaged the skin over your knuckle and as anyone else that's had calouses on theyre hands will know, they just drop off causing you to wait a while before you can resume training.

Hitting , walls, woods etc, really doesn't help, if you wanna have fist of Iron, you gotta find inner strength,

I am 15 and get into tons of fights at my new school, somewhere around 17, and my fists are really jacked up. They are cut on both sets of knuckles on my right hand (the lower and upper) and two of my fingers are broken, and i think all of knuckles are broken. What should i do to strenghten and heal them if i dont have a bag to punch.
