You're right. I'm stupid. Keep your head down and take every punch to the top of the head if possible.

Hes also claimed he was a Navy SEAL sniper (shot 3 times), jumped motorcycles, fought Steven Segal in a bar fight and won, shot a rhinoceros, and survived a 4 story fall without a scratch... among other things.

So there.

Oh yeah, he heals extremely well, so you can't see the bullet scars.

the top of the head thing is an old school street fighting technique. the hardest part of ur head is the top part where u would head butt someone with or whatevr. its an old street fighting defense to put ur head down to thurt the guy. i would never use it in boxing but in a street fight its been used.

I'm not dissing you- don't take it personally. I've been reading this post to find out the same things you are because i don't know either.

It's just something tells me that if you have the time to react to a punch by taking it on the top of the head you should have the time to just.... move out of the way and not get hit at all. Maybe I'm wrong tho.

My boss really does say shit like that tho... like everyday... it's really annoying.
