Iron Chin's

Some fighters have it, some don't...Chuck Liddell (definitely an Iron Chin!)

So guys, what do you think...

Can you teach someone how to take a punch, or is it completely "natural"?

yeah i think we need a serious discussion on this, im trying to get into mma at the moment, i do jujitsu and submission wrestling, at an mma team gym.
But i often wonder if i can take a punch. Right now we spar with 14 oz boxing gloves, and i just tell my girlfriend to punch me as hard as she can with 10 oz sparring mitts just to ease me in, so to speak.

any use?? what do u think??

i am concerned about long term damage through this training, eg: whats the use of battering yourself everyday in training, only to get finished off when the big fight comes.

I'm pretty sure strengthening your neck makes it a little harder to get knocked out. I wouldn't really suggest conditioning to make the bones stronger beause later in life that will come back to you.

I think you either have one or don't. I realised I had one when I was sucker punched in the side of the head with a knuckle duster which broke a bone in my face, knocked my jaw outta place, broke my nose and completely closed my left eye. Stayed on my feet.
A strong neck must help, but I have always had one.

Maybe you have strong chin but the rest of your head isn't very good.

Everything but my jaw is fine, if I take a slap or a knee in Muay thai it cracks for days after.

I don't know exactly if this is a *anti knockout exercise* or even what it's for but before we start sparring we do in Muay Thai something that's called *jaws* we put our fists underneath our chin in a V shape and we push upward while opening our mouth.It's all about resistance. We usually do 2 sets of 25 or 30

I don't know exactly what it is for but i will assume it;s for improving jaw strength. I have taken a few nasty punches to my jaw during sparring matches but have yet to be knocked out. As for kicks i always block the head kicks so i don't know if one will knock me out yet. I'll ask y instructor on saturday what it's for and post it here if i remember.

Its all about recovery, anyone can get rocked. Practise by making yourself dead dizzy, falling on the floor then getting up and continuing.
