    Hello, is there a scientific way to improve one's resistance to knockout ? I've heard that is all about the shock the chin that it goes to the brain and then it's all gone. But is there a way to improve this as to make the brain more resistant to such impact ? There are a few fighters known to have "iron chin" and they fall very rare even when hit full power on their chin. Opinions ?

    It's probably mostly out of your control.

    But avoid bad posture and get yourself a really good mouthgaurd.

    The New England Patriots are known for having the best mouthgaurds and they have the least amount of concussions by far of any NFL team.

    Like the headbanging, neckwork is probably your best best.

    Trent Dassouza writes in his anthology of gym poems that blackout is copout your brain is spun. More neck hinge is good but beware of man-bun.
    He's using man-bun as symbolism for making things complicated by adding fancy trendy ideas. He is a telling you to practice getting hit more. Don't give up, and keep it simple. Simple punches to the face will suffice.

    Honestly this. Really and truly.

    The next level is then moving with the punch when it hits. You see in slow motion when Floyd is hit flush he's already going backwards away from it.

    The most severe kos happen when someone is moving into the blow and when it creates rotation of the skull. When you start to get good you mitigate these situations.

    Have additional cerebral spinal fluid and slightly more bone density in the cranium. (things you can't control).

    Neck work and moving away from the punches while maintaining balance as suggested is your only options other than getting better at not being hit to begin with.

    Reading that repeated brain concussions can cause the brain to go to sleep more often... makes this have no sense, even being counter-productive

    Even Trent has been known to extrapolate for the good of science. Einstein cracked the atom and blew himself up so that you and I can have freedom.
