after getting a concussion you become far more susceptible to permanent damage until you fully heal. if you fight concussed you are an idiot, plain and simple. no one ever makes you fight. fighting is for fun, its something I do with friends in a controlled environment. if you need to defend yourself use a weapon, its what i do.
@ Xerberus :

I know that in the general opinion of the people who have replied in this thread is that the kid should get checked out by a doctor.

I have a nagging concern for my own body currently after reading this topic. I know that I have had a delayed concussion in the past. I believe I received the blow to my head when I was 10 or 11 years old. Basically a piece of firewood cracked me in the head, I had enough motor skills to get myself about a hundred yards to my house to relay what had happened.

The next day I had gone into school and went into a state of concussion. The only thing I can recall from this experience is that I felt extremely dizzy. I had the help of two people just to get to the nurse's office. When mom got there I could not walk on my own-accord.

I would be believe that after 12 to 14 years that this concussion should be healed. I am curious if something like this should be checked out after such a long period of recovery?

Throughout life there are bumps along the way some may be painful...others not...who gives a damn in the end you'll still die
