    ...and I'm sure that this isn't what Headhunter means...but you should DEFINITELY care about concussions, we all should. But, you can't science/research your way to anything. It's just not how this works. You can get knocked out from the silliest, most mundane thing and conversely people take savage beatings over 12 rounds and never leave their feet.

    Protect your head. Don't fool with your brain. Training is supposed to keep you safe. If you put in the time, you'll develop a sense of when you are safe and when you are not and it won't have anything do to with metrics or vectors or P.S.I..

    Could've been worse he could've missed the n instead of the c then it would've said probability of a Kock out. That would've been an entirely different thread lol

    Of course you need to care about concussions, I know not to take stupid amounts of hits to the head in training and I know if I ever do start taking to many heavy shots I stop but I don't need to research how many people get concusion every year lol

    OSHA is the Occupational Safety & Health Administration -- which is why they might have some info on the forces that cause concussions...

    A keyword search of "concussion" on osha.gov reports 3173 events. It looks like the majority are from slips and falls, which would fall under OSHA'a purview. There are concussions from strikes by objects, whether swung or walking/falling into them. OSHA makes a claim that some professional athletes are employees and thereby fall under their jurisdiction but I could not find an account of a professional athlete and OSHA.
    Government claims to have a hand in everything.

    I'm sure you do. Just making sure our OP doesn't miss the salient point that anyone with enough training would know.

    Seeing as op is in the UK, it might be worth looking at HSE.

    OSHA wouldn't understand how us over here are built y'see.
