    Hey there

    Great stuff!!!

    I use to box a SMALL bit, my buddy was into muay thai a lot tho so I defninetly am Familiar with this stuff..

    I never did it professionally and was just wondering your opinion on the helmet.

    I know it definitely must protect, but I have heard that with the helmet punches hurt more since your head is so tight in the helmet. IS this true or no

    To be honest my tolerance for pain is not very high. You have techniques or a link to your site for that ?

    1. Hi Jessy, I´m glad that you enjoyed my article.
      Well, my opinion about helmets:
      A helmet is a form of protective gear worn to protect the head from injuries.
      All helmets attempt to protect the user’s head by absorbing mechanical energy and protecting against penetration. Their structure and protective capacity are altered in high-energy impacts. Beside their energy-absorption capability, their volume and weight are also important issues, since higher volume and weight increase the injury risk for the user’s head and neck. Anatomical helmets adapted to the inner head structure were invented by neurosurgeons at the end of the 20th century.
      Mixed martial arts helmets have ear pads to prevent serious injuries to the athletes, who do not usually endure such force to the ears.
      I don´t know any cases like that Jessy.Are your friend using a Helmet from a reputable brand? Is it the right size?
      I hope that I helped you.
      Thanks a lot for your comment.
