Saturday morning during some hard sparring I got clean KO'd for the 1st time in my life. Slipped a punch as he threw a hard body kick, and BAM!

Shin to chin, next thing I know i'm walking out the ring, asking what happened. Cool experience, def. keeping my hands up from now on.

Yeah it was crazy, Haha, I didn't remember sparring or anything for the first 20 or 30 minutes, but it all came back to me, they said i just fell straight on my face. Out for 15 - 30 seconds, but I walked out on my own! Haha

circa305 - Im no doc but I would take it easy for a while a few weeks no head contact.

 


^FWIW, I agree.

 

My understanding is that you, in fact and by definition, have now suffered a "concussion."  A doctor's appointment would therefore be a good idea.  Barring that, I'd certainly hope you can manage to take at least 4 to 6 weeks off of head contact. 

Two months of grappling and pad work wouldn't be a waste.  Use it as an opportunity perhaps.

Yeah, i'm definitely not having any head contact for the 1st, 2 weeks, maybe until my next fight. But I've felt perfectly normal since it happened.

My grandma felt ok for couple weeks after she got hit in head once. Then BOOM 35 years later she died of heart failure.
Just saying, take some time Phone Post 3.0

Thanks! Haha, and exactly what I said, better in the gym than in the cage. It was something I needed to experience eventually, I was too cocky about dropping my hands.

Not long enough. Seriously. You should take a minimum of one *month*.

Yeah, second impact syndrome is not a myth, your brain is nicely bruised right now. What you have suffered is a stage 3 concussion a la memory loss. No head contact 30 day IMO. On a side not i see your only loss was to Joe Son. Did he punch you in the nuts? Phone Post

I got my first concussion in years in March. Got kicked in the face, cracked my nose, but I didn't go out. Just kinda turned into a zombie Chris Leben and kept going. After I felt like I was drunk for 2 days with a headache. I took a while off to heal since I couldn't grapple with a jacked up nose.

All in all I have gotten at least 4-5 concussions in my life. 3 from Football, 1 from Judo and 1 getting kicked. I have a pretty good chin but try to not test it out as much as possible, since I'm not training for anything right now. Phone Post 3.0

The few times I have been knocked out I was drunk and it was from a sucker punch and a kick or two to the head on the ground or being hit with a bottle. Getting taken by surprise in any situation is frightening.

Let your brain rest and even for the next few days don't even work out. Stay still so you don't rattle your brain while it is in a compromised state. My doctor has told me that one of the worst things to go and do after a concussion is go jogging or work out. So just helax for a few days.

I've been choked out a few times, but never KO'd standing. I was once flash KO'd, it was the craziest thing, I ate a right hook and lost a second or two. That was in seventh grade against an 18 yo man though.

Definately observe your conditions carefully for the next few weeks and watch for anything not right like headaches or diziness.

I had a friend crash a GT-2 car in SCCA racing by sliding backwards into a barrier and he was fine for two weeks.

He never lost consciousness and wasn't banged up much at all.

When it was time for a vacation a few weeks later, he got busy and did some extremely hot outdoor work in preparation, he stated he had a headache and joked "man, I wonder if this is what a stroke feels like?".

Everything was fine when he went home and he went on vacation the next day.

He still had a slight headache as he checked in at the hotel where he was vacationing, did some vacation stuff, and went to bed.

The next day, he woke up and couldn't remember how to tie his shoes but struggled through it and quickly started declining until he was started feeling numb on one side.

He went to the hospital and his decline did not stop until he was left partially paralyzed on one side and the doctors did what they needed to do to fix the problem.

He had very slight bleed in his brain and has not recovered his former function to this day.

Be careful.

My dad had the same thing happen twice. One day his foot started dragging slightly and we begged him to go to the doc. He waited a day and finally did go, and they said he almost fucked himself. He was on blood thinners for a while, but is still here and didnt need brain surgery thankfully. Phone Post 3.0
