Forearm training

Conditioning is a huge part of karate.

Not only does it slowly increases your pain tolerance but increases bone density.

The exercise’s importance, in my opinion, is to lower the risk of injuries. The bones become sturdier and though bruising of the muscles may occur, damaging fractures are less likely going to happen. This means your body can take more punishment in a fight. Blocking a punch or striking someone hurts and the goal is to make it much more painful for the other person than yourself.
