BLACK BELT: I feel queasy just watch­ing this! It’s ti­tled “A lovely girl kick­ing con­crete walls and hard trees to con­di­tion her shin.”

Black Belt - - COMMUNITY -

Sean Havens:

I know it works. We used bam­boo stalks, but jeez, I do get queasy at the thought of it. Been years since, and my shins are still hag­gard and nasty look­ing.

Steve Ever­heart:

Do not kick hard ob­jects with a lot of force at the start. Grad­u­ally work dif­fer­ent parts of the body that would strike an op­po­nent. Do not hurt your­self.

Eric Carr:

In my opin­ion, this prac­tice is ar­chaic and danger­ous. I know most are im­pressed by it, but I have dif­fer­ent mea­sures of strength and skill.

Marco Zacharia:

Easy way to shorten your mar­tial arts ca­reer [with] stress frac­tures. Also, only works at one dis­tance/mea­sure. If the kick misses, re­cov­ery is al­most im­pos­si­ble.

Alessan­dro:

Ut­ter non­sense. Wish I had never been duped into do­ing “shin con­di­tion­ing” back in my fight days, although it’s nice be­ing able to pre­dict the weather with the vary­ing amounts of pain now.

Chris McLean:

We are get­ting to see the fin­ish­ing touches of years of ded­i­ca­tion to con­di­tion­ing. Many lev­els and much more ob­jects in­volved in her de­vel­op­ment, in­clud­ing herbal treat­ments.

Justin McNeal:

You have to be very care­ful with this. Oth­er­wise, you can de­velop an un­no­ticed frac­ture that fi­nally gives at the least op­por­tune mo­ment.

Steve Tonkin:

She will de­stroy her legs and feet. Take it from me, I have arthri­tis in both feet due to poor train­ing tech­niques. Stop, please!

Yousif Atta:

She be watch­ing too much Kick­boxer with JCVD.

John Cha­los:

Life hack — chop­ping off one arm at the el­bow and sharp­en­ing it makes it easier to stab. No wor­ries from TSA.
