IMBA Lert Rit students learn at a very early stage of their training the importance of bare knuckle punching. Hand conditioning is a very complex process that may take years to reach a satisfactory level.
Among the many systems adopted to actually harden the bones of the hands without injurying the trainees, hitting a woodden pole, covered with protective foam sheet, stands as one of the best.
Supervision by a qualified instructor is of paramount importance: duration of training, number of sessions per week, intensity and power of strikes, all these elements cannot be improvised and need personal tuition.
If care is applied pole hitting can turn a fighter’s hand into real weapons ready to unleash heavy blows without risking a fracture or a torn ligament.
