I know this can be a controversial subject...but the thread of Bill above is very educational.

Fell free to agree/disagree.

Lots of systems do ,others don't ,so there will always be contrast .

You are going to get hit .

I fell head first of a house roof ,slipping on slimy green mould ,smashed through a fence em route to ground with shin landing a brick rubble ,my head landed on a bag of peat at side of green house ,got up and walked away .

Conditioned

Fought for half hr to get out of ice filled dam ,using iron palms n hammer fists to get back to the bank .

Conditioning .

One of my students Dr. T. is top man at the Umass orthopedic dept. One of his associates was performing a bone density study. Dr. T. made arrangements to have Uechi folk MRI'ed as part of the study


i dont think the results where ever posted. what Dr. T. found was a thick layer of calcium over the bones. i cant remember what the actual bone denisty was but i belive is was increased.
i can attest to the fact that Tracy's arms were like 5 inch iron bars and it seemed like they wieghed just as much.
now from a striking perspective since kinectic energy is formulated using mass and speed, more bone density and heavier bones will equal a much harder strike.

something to think about :)

From one of my students, master ranked

Skin does thicken when there is friction, second stage to that is the forming of callus. The body has thousands of ways to protect itself that are unseen.

Hard conditioning is Karate related.

Now looking at Master Shinjio's breaks, more specifically the baseball bat break with a forearm strike...should lead to an understanding of the necessity of conditioning before attempting such thing.

Without conditioning for at least ten years or more, nobody should try to do what he does.

Is the forearm radius bone dense to the point that the bat will break instead of the arm?

What is causing the bat to break? And what about his toes in sokusen?
Why don't they break when he slams the wood on them?
