yeah i dont mind it on the forehead bruises a little but does no damage other than that.
I dont mind getting hit but i see some fighters that manage to completely avoid getting hit whilst managing to ko their opponent.
and they are gods.
its a sad truth, but you are going to get hit at some point in a fight. footwork, head movement etc is your key to avoiding that as much as possible. which to a certain extent should allow you to be hit less, especially in a fight with joe blow who has no formal training. guys with formal training are going to know how you're going to avoid their strikes, and no one is perfect, you're going to get hit.
