Thanks for the article, but that guy didn't say bareknuckle push-ups are detrimental. When he was talking about Oyama, thats from hitting the makiwara and sustaining blunt force to the hands. Knuckle pushups will never cause the nerve and bone damage that made oyama's hands what they were, which was hammers. The article was just saying knuckle pushups are only good for toughening the skin on the knuckles, and not actually strengthening the hand's soft tissue and bone. he makes a good point, im not gonna sotp doing knuckles ups but i am gonna switch back and forth from flat palmed now
