comment What is the most effective way to stabilize a WaveMaster 2XL?
i've heard water and sand is best, if you plan on having to move it a lot, it'll be heavier then one or the other. if you don't ever have to move it again, concrete is good.

comment How bad is kickboxing for your brain?
@Samuel that's a little concerning. If you have a job that requires your brain... i'd think about learning to block and parry, quickly. and maybe ask about wearing head gear.

comment How bad is kickboxing for your brain?
you see stars and feel light headed 2-3 times per training session? that's bad. those are both pretty good signs that your brains rattled, and getting damaged. Do you wear head gear and 16 oz gloves when you spar?

no other answers needed here. if you have an injury, let it heal. especially if it is a tear.
