The most painful I ever received was a kidney shot. It felt like my back exploded, dropped me like a stone. What was your most painful blow?

Most painful strike, no idea. Most painful blow was when I was about 13, was a goalie for my friends. One of them was practicing his shots and from less than 10 feet away, hit a slap shot straight to my nuts. As I keeled over, I accidentally knocked the puck away from the goal so all was well :D

Hard to say. Rib shot either bruised or fractured a floating rib, it hurt when I coughed or laughed for about a month. That was light sparring at another dojo.

In a tournament, I blocked a front snap kick improperly with an open hand and paid for it with a badly jammed hand that hurt for several months. The worst part of that was driving 5 hours back to my house with one hand cradled in my lap because I could not grip the steering wheel with it. I may have uttered the longest continuing curse word ever known to man on that trip.

Those are the most memorable. I've had tons of other injuries during MA training. Mostly temporarily painful, some longer-lasting.

Most painful blow was being struck by a van going 65 mph, it nearly killed me (24 rib fractures, sternum fracture, collapsed lung, rib punctured my spleen, pneumomediastinum, subcutaneous emphysema, lacerated left kidney, severe concussion to Broka's area, full thickness laceration to the left temporalis)

Most painful strike? I agree kidney shots suck! peed blood due to a kidney shot once, really not fun.

You guys make me feel fortunate to not have experienced any of that. I've taken good shots before but not to the liver or kidneys. Mine is probably when I blocked a front kick the wrong way with my forearm. Either that or the broken finger I had last year.

the most painful blow i received was when i was told by my ex-girlfriend that my friend/boss/father figure/mentor had passed away 1/2 hour after i visited him in the hospital. nothing hits harder than life, the most strike i have ever had was definitely a kidney strike, instantly dropped me straight to the ground. i remember watching my favorite boxer Julio Cesar Chavez win fights by a combo hit to the kidneys and then to the head for a knock out.

Most painful blow by far is the liver. I'd rather take a shot to the groin than a liver shot. Have broken several bones. Ribs are the worse. Not so much from the rib/s being broken but all the additional pain when moving the torso, heavy breathing, sneezing, coughing, laughing. Everything you do hurts but that liver shot is the worse. It makes your legs crumble, breathing is worse than having a broken rib and you thing you are going to die.

most painful blow in TKD..? Has to be a tie between taking a side kick in the throat,
a roundhouse in the eye or getting kicked so hard in the chest, it knocked the wind out of me..

I pretty much block out the pain during sparing so it is usually worse a bit later lol.
Top painful hit was probably a kick to the jaw. I was eating soup for a weak after because chewing was impossible. No damage to the teeth tho.
Number two would be a heavy guy who dropped himself on me, pulling a muscle in my back. That time I did scream :D

Stomp to the lower leg breaking my Tibia and Fibula then waiting 6 hours in the hospital with my foot at an unnatural 90 degree angle waiting for morphine.

you actually waited 6 hours for a painkiller with such an obvious break? you need to move to an area with a better hospital!
