I wouldn't like to say.
It's worth noting that the perfect build for Muay Thai is long and slim, ergo, the Jon jones/Anderson silva build.
yeah that is what i was thinking myself. It isnt like the muscle/fat is in the front of the shin to absorb the impact. There does not seem to be much between your skin and your shin bone. I mean i guess i could see the "Force" being dispersed through a thicker leg better and thus reducing the impact at the main contact point... or some mumbo jumbo like that haha
but i have no clue one way or the other. Would be a good question for someone who specializes in that field. Quiet frankly im not sure who the best person (Professional field) would be to ask. I dont think just any doctor would know the answer.
