I have a small disclaimer before I say anything: I know it was stupid and not logical. I knew better, but I was angry at the time because I probably had one of the worst days of my life. There is no excuse for bad behavior, however, and this has screwed up a lot of plans for me in my life. It has been more than a little embarrassing to tell my coaches/instructors/friends/family I broke my hand punching a wall. So I'm aware how idiotic my behavior was. The purpose of this post is a friendly reminder not for anyone else like me to take their anger out on stuff that does not say ouch as my friend put it. I'm not here to laugh or joke about this (you're more than welcome though). I cannot work, school is tough and this is putting on a hamper on my living situation. This also hampers my training, but fortunately, this will heal and I will be able to train again. Knowing what happened to me I ask for any aspiring kids like me (aka fools) not to punch walls out of anger. You can cry, yell or jump up and down, but in God's name not this. You are no different than me in this case; the wall wins. Another thing I'd like to address I've had a lot of advice since I broke my arm from idiots on how to punch walls that have demonstrated a worrying lack of understanding on the issue. Even with correct technique if you punch a wall your hand will break. I do not care how tough your hand is it is not tougher than a support that holds tens of thousands of pounds. If you hit hard and it is a legit sturdy substance something will budge, and I guarantee it will not be the wall. I've done karate, boxing and I've heard a lot of theory on how to hit. I'm just going to put out the theory if you hit hard; you're going to break your hand. I do not care how good your technique is or conditioned your bones are. After it is healed and the pins are pulled out I'm hoping to do some strong rice bucket training and maybe towel pull-ups so I can get stronger hands. I still can not believe I was such an idiot in the first place though. Sigh.
