    Definitely not a new idea and definitely not my original idea. I first saw this type of experiment with collegiate athletes for some University I don't recall around five or six years ago. It works, I've used it, and even Bas Rutten has mentioned in interviews before, I believe, that cornerman should be putting ice on the head to reduce swelling. The issue is the bag of ice isn't cold enough to really do anything in 60 seconds and doesn't make contact with a large enough surface area of skin. Which is why submerging the feet and hands in ice water, with salt, is absolutely necessary. This is combining another principle from Chemistry that I don't see many trainers/fighters/cornerman use or understand. There are similar ideas for breathing, but this isn't the thread for that topic.

    The original idea is getting two buckets of ice water, with salt, and bringing that into the corner for fighters to submerge their feet in, and if I ever get my way and gloves are no longer needed in MMA, the hands will go in as well.

    So I worked a NAFC (In Vancovuer at the River Rock Casino) last month. We were supplied with 10 small rolls of gauze and two rolls 1" wide tape that snapped off easily (which is a good thing). We were not allowed to use any of our own supplies (I always bring extra in case they run low/out). I found the amount given was adequate, though really weird having to stop and grab another roll of gauze every 2 minutes.
    Can't complain though. It was much better than the first time I did it there a few years ago.

    Two rolls of tape? That may be a step up. Any idea how long they were?

    I don't know for sure, but It was plenty! I taped around, then vertical and then horizontal again and still had a lot left over.

    Any suggestions on where to get Adrenaline or Avitene? I looked online and 400 bucks for some sheets seems to be the minimum

    I love reading these posts. I've started working towards working corners and these posts have helped greatly. I'm still trying to perfect my hand wrapping. Just out of curiosity, what do your bags look like respectively?

    You gotta make friends. I got my adrenaline from a manager who sells it to fighters and trainers he knows. But I have a couple of Dr. friends who would either write a script, or just order it for me if I asked. I paid $50 for enough to last a year, though. So don't buy that crap online. If you have any coaching certification, ask around for a reputable Doc known by other trainers or fighters. Make an appointment so you can meet them in person, then tell them what you need.

    )

    I try to have my bag together the day before a show, or even that day before that. But it's pretty standard. Tape, gauze, scissors, enswell, basic first aid stuff (nosebleed stoppers come in hugely handy), mitts, cup (or two), headgears for amateur boxing shows, towels, and then some random miscellaneous personal crap, though I usually bring my own backpack with me to keep my stuff separate. I've lost my own personal stuff by trying to keep it with my trainer's gear and taking too much stuff out and putting it back in repeatedly.
