    Should UFC Adopt Shin Guards?

    My experience has different, but my kicks are probably different than yours. I kick the heck out of everyone's front calf, I don't care how light they are on their foot.

    Kung fu in MMA Wins

    It's much harder for me to stop double and single legs when the attacker can put their knee to the ground. You've been wrestling for a long time, so how do you deal with this?

    I'm also curious to know how much time he has spent training this kick. I know some TKD practitioners who are good with this kick as well. This kick really can have nasty results in SD scenario when people are standing more regular and less squared off.

    @Ivan , hope you have healed up well! how many lighter sparring sessions have you had recently leading up to this incident?

    I agree. This kicking technique when applied in a certain manner I think inherently may just bear some risk of you snapping your leg without some sort of armor/protection. There are many ways to use the technique that bear less or no risk of snapping your leg.

    What do you do to minimize the risk of this happening to you? Is it just a freak accident every time? Is it a poorly executed technique sometimes? For myself, I pretty much never throw full out lowkicks. Softer thrown kicks people have a hard time seeing coming have always worked fine for me...

    Can I have some more criticism on my shadowboxing and heavy bag work?

    @Ivan Always refreshing to see you working hard! You're looking swole and smooth lol I can tell you've been doing some slowed down exercises. Keep on developing that connectivity and balance. This time I have nothing to offer but general encouragement! A guy like you will improve so long as...

    Trimming Heavy Uniforms (Shureido)

    I second the tent repairmen/makers and leather workers suggestions. I think anyone who uses a sewing awl and an appropriate vise could probably do the stitching. I have been making myself clothes as a hobby since I was a teen and have used this tool to help make/alter doboks and demo costumes...

    Do you think shin guards could help with broken bones?

    Also, what if fighters were just allowed to wrap, brace, and put some tape on the lower calf area? That's what many of us used back in the day at TKD tournaments if shin guards weren't required. Calf kicks are usually aimed at the upper, more muscular part of the calf, so no protection up...

    They definitely make it easier to hold the leg and foot in some instances, but so do pants and shoes. I don't advocate for chest protectors. I don't think body shots are a risk. The post where I mention chest protection is me daydreaming of a more futuristic, thin armor (that may protect well...

    I also just read Coach John Kavanaugh says he kicked Porier's elbow while throwing a front kick and fractured his shin. Sooo maybe just a simple, minimal elbow pad would've prevented the whole accident? I'm all for blunting elbows and saving a few faces as well.

    this is why I think a newer, thinner concept for protective gear would be necessary. something that does not want to deform under sudden impact. It's so protective it becomes a weapon, which is why helmets and more protective gear would be needed I guess. I came up watching Pancrase and I...
