    i've been doing martial arts for the past 10 years. the last 3 years i've been kickboxing and bjj. At home i hit the heavy bag and here lately i've been hitting it a lot. I'm having some shoulder pain and want to know how to prevent and stop the pain.

    Could you be more specific about the pain? When you get it? Where specifically in the shoulder? If it is sharp or dull?

    Relax your shoulders when you punch. On top of of this soreness it's probably zapping your energy. As they say in karate, "if you can tell your shoulder is there, you're doing it wrong."
