Leg Checks

Several weeks ago I had several checked kicks and I am curious how long does it normally take for the shin to heal so you can resume work on the bag?



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

If your shins still hurt after several weeks, then go and see a physician to have it checked. If you're unlucky, it might be periostitis which could take several months to heal. And even after it's healed your shins may be sensitive and prone to getting it again in training.

I just looked at a calendar and it's be about 5 weeks now.

The shin itself is fine to the touch and general work...but if I try to throw any kind of heavy kicks I am in pain.

The pain I am in when I do this isn't because of beginners pain. So I guess I'll have to see another doctor yea...

Sorry to hear about your pain. I'm a beginner and even the slightest shin encounter hurts, so I can feel your pain. With that said, you should be blocking with your knee, not your shin. The term 'shin block' is a misnomer, we only use our shins in practice. The Thai words translated to knee block. Think about it, if a guy throws a kick and hits your knee with his shin or foot, who is going to feel it more!
