    Not shins, it's always the joints. Your shins will be fine. Wrists and knees, possibly knuckles.

    I take the Pavel Tsatsouline approach to kettlebell training to martial arts training.

    Don't train to failure. It does more harm than good - especially over the long term.

    The joints are probably the number one health problem with martial arts training.

    A proper S&C program & having the right nutrition goes a long way also.

    I think TMAs do a better job at getting the balance right for long term health but at the expense of slower results.
