Re: Taking a punch...
Sure you could get your self in tremmendous condition, strenghten your neck, chew gum, lots of demanding cardio,
but, if you are going to take punches, you have to be totally relaxed, unafraid, focussed.
And most important, you have to see those punches coming.
Where you get hit is also important and how you get hit.
Nobody lets anyone hit them on the chin for free.
