Tuesday evening class in Yokohama. Working on defenses against stick attacks.
Students often ask me "how to condition forearms and shins so it's not so painful when we block the attacks."
Practicing regularly leg defenses against kicks and 360 forearms defenses shall eventually make you less sensitive to pain. However for those who want to improve faster here is a training method that I use for myself. Remember, it's essential that you don't hurt yourself, so start with light power. You can also increase the padding.
