Knuckle conditioning is a natural albeit sped up method of hardening your fists through specific and intensive exercises over time and throughout.
The purpose is to make your bare fists a better weapon while also making them less prone to pain and injury that may be sustained through combat.
This is accomplished by overdeveloping callouses in the knuckles, of which in the process, the bone density increases – shielding nerves and weaker bones.
Tougher, denser and larger knuckles packs more powerful punches due to this physical enhancement.
Additionally, increased impact capacity in the fists will make your arms to adapt to throwing even stronger punches because of this higher threshold.
Conditioning knuckles already occur through the process of most types of martial arts training. However, they can be augmented to much higher levels with other training and sub-processes.
Instead of wearing gloves and other protection, gradually do more bare fist striking on punching bags and harder and rougher surfaces over time.
Punching, twisting and pushing into bowls of rice is an effective and safe method of knuckle conditioning.
Your fists will punch harder and with less risk.
