Xen is that the same type of thing Machida does when he said he hits the wood?
A long time ago in highschool I used to hit a thick piece of wood tied in rope. Made my knuckles rough as hell and much more density to it.
I’d definaetly like to have that back and some more.
I use to focus only on the front 2 knuckles though (pointing, and middle finger)
is it better to use all 4 knuckles? I’m assuming so…unless there is some type of injury that can occur. Thanks![/quote]
Yes. Look up makiwara on google or youtube.
Build one and use it everyday and i’ll guarantee you’ll have perty knuckles.
You could focus on the other 2 knuckles but you should always aim to hit with perfect form. I’ve been taught to punch in such a way that the front 2 knuckles hit. Might as well practice proper mechanics while you toughen your hands.
That being said, you could probably do some side knuckle toughening up for the ring and pinky knuckles.
