    Relax more. You shouldn't be grinding so hard. Smooth is fast.

    And don't pop them without cleaning and sterilizing them. Use tape or moleskin if necessary.

    When I first started Muay Thai I had a horrible blood blister on the bottom of my big toe. Now the bottom of my feet are more callused up and don't bother me. Your body will end up getting used to it sooner or later.

    dry your feet before you start anything. or maybe use some vasaline it will help

    I had the same problem about 3 weeks ago. I tape my big toes the next couple of times that I went. I also tried jumping rope before class barefoot to toughen my feet some. I haven't had any problems recently.

    What type of surface are you training on? Mats? Wood? Concrete? Carpet..? Either way, you should eventually build up some callouses.

    i train on wood on a monday, but other than that its always on mats. on a monday it definitely hurts my feet the most, but over a while i'll get use to it so i dont really have a problem with the pain

    Your feet will get calloused up after a while and it wont be a problem.
