    I started training standup about 8 months ago or so and i have noticed one of my biggest problems is being dingged up. I was wondering if this is just part of the game or growing pains? i do train very aggressive we rarley use gloves dont get me wrong this is the way i like it but it seemes like i always have a black eye or cut lip is this normal

    When you are swinging your limbs around they are bound to hit something and get a little banged up. What do you mean you don't use gloves though?

    well when hitting pads i usualy use gloves and wraps but when sparing it is usualy just wraps or 8oz goloves i would say 60% of the time bare fist and trust of my partners

    thats what im sayin, no to mention u dont want to mess up your hand/wrist in training... u wear pads to protect yourself and others...its only common sense if ur not protected ur gonna fuck shit up..simnple as that.. i dont see the point in walking around all busted up tho...:rolleyes:

    Of course you're injured, you're sparring without protection! You can trust them all you want, but there's no avoiding the laws of Physics...

    not using gloves is kinda odd, but ya bruises kinda come with the territory.

    What style are you training? Apparently Kyokushinkai they do bare knuckle sparring. But even then i hear its only punches to the body.

    Its either a flame job or he's training at an old school club. Where do you train in Toledo?

    And yes to answer your question, if you want to train like that you will ALWAYS be banged up.

    well when you have no protective gear where do you expect to "catch" these techniques?

    We use 16oz gloves, shin pads, bell pads, elbow pads, mouth gaurd, and i still come away with bumps and bruises. If i start taking some of that gear away that i use im sure the bumps and bruises wont get any better... see where im going here?

    There's no way a legit school lets this happen. If the TS is telling the truth (and I'm doubtful) then it's like someone said - it's just some guys playing Fight Club and thinking it's hot shit.
