Did your doctor recommend a knee brace? This comes very close to medical recommendation.

comment What are the advantages of using a vertical fist for punching?
Can you clarify the baseball bat analogy? I think any reasonable person would prefer being hit with a baseball bat end-on, rather than hit with a swing.

comment Is kickboxing or boxing particularly dangerous?
I would also question your use of the term "short term" to describe the evidence of brain injury in amateur boxing. From the article you link: "The boxers who participated in the study competed on the top-level of Swedish boxing and all had fought at least 47 bouts." These are world class amateur boxers; the amateur refers to whether they take pro bouts, not their level of involvement in the sport, which is quite extensive and certainly not short term.

I edited your Livestrong link to point directly to the BBC reportage, though it still lacks a link to the study. (If you think I erred, please feel free to roll it back or re-edit.) I think the distinction between pro and amateur is worth noting here. My answer on concussions (linked above) addresses this.

comment Finding my center (hara / t'an t'ien)
The idea that it takes ten years to feel and use one's center is complete hogwash.

comment Is it true that most fights end on the ground? What is the evidence?
A friend of mine noted that a remarkable number of barfights in Japan led to two drunk men vigorously trying to osotogari each other.

What are you getting the glove for? Training at a gym, training at home, hitting a bag, competition?

Could you excerpt it here, or convert this to a comment, to prevent linkrot and add value?
