Keeping your hands up + head movement >>>>>>> face/jaw toughening.
WHy would you try to toughen up your facial bones? Those bones are already 10 times harder than the bones in your knuckles, and its not damage to the bones that causes a KO. There is absolutley no point in toughening up your face bones unless you are looking to compete in baseball bat fighting.
Yeah, I was going to say you're bones don't really have much to do with getting KOed, it's that nerve behind your jaw getting smushed or your brain bouncing around that does it. Toughening the skin so you don't get cut is the only that would be the result of trying to do that IMO.
taking hits and breaking through the pain barrier is a huge step in not losing your wind or your mind during a fight. You can also learn to keep going despite having your head rocked. It's conditioning that is done over many many years.
a i guess getting punched in your facial bones dont hurt. or knock you out.
toughening up your facial bones. more like getting used to the feeling. common sense really. get punched in the stomach a lot. doesnt really hurt that much anymore.
getting choked out. again and again isnt that bad.
getting slammed into the matt. not as bad as before.
There's a difference between getting used to being hit and deliberately letting someone hit you so you can develop a resistence to it. The OP asked for opinions about the first and the fact is, it's an idiotic tactic.
Getting punched in the face doesn't hurt that much during a fight to begin with. Its all psychological, and its pointless to try to reproduce that outside of sparring or fighting cause you're in a completely different state.
