Default Pressure points on the body.

Is there a pressure point on your chin? Like when I take straight punches on the chin I feel a pain in my chin as if theres a pressure point on it, but when I take a hook to the chin I don't feel any pain really. I'm hoping thats not a weakspot for only me

Just behind your ear, above your jaw bone lies a bony ridge. Behind that ridge is a collection of nerves, when a punch lands on the chin it drives the jaw bone into the aforementioned nerves.

This causes temporary paralysis, loss of co-ordination, disorientation and sometimes even blindness that can last from 2 seconds to much longer.

this is a little off topic but three effective body punches are the

solar plexus-point where the ribs converge to form the sternum, reminiscent of an upside down Y

heart- it's actually a shot just under the heart roughly 1 inch to the left of your opponents left nipple at the base of the pec.

liver- if you press your right arm up against your body and feel just above the beginning of the elbow.

Generally, the sparring gloves are too bulky to drive into the types of pressure points you learn in a martial arts class.

However, there is a plexus of nerves over the liver, and another just under the armpit (brachial plexus), both of which are legal targets in boxing and both of which reside in "insertion points" where muscle groups overlap, so they are not as well protected as, say, the solar plexus (which resides behind the abdominal wall). Both of these areas, if hit squarely and hard, will drop a man as fast as a kick to the balls.

Headgear generally covers the mastoid process (behind the jaw) and the temple, both of which can result in a K.O. if hit cleanly. The Brain Pad -type mouth guards that hold the lower jaw forward will keep a straight punch on the chin from K.O.'ing you and you're a fool to spar without one, IMO.

Took a look at those mouthguards never heard of them, can they be used in competition? how do they feel to train in? no breathing restriction? so by holding the jaw in place they minimise knockouts?

No breathing restriction; there's a hole between the top and bottom teeth.

The most common cause of concussion and K.O. in amateur boxing, according to multiple doctors' published papers (google "Amateur Boxing Concussion"), is a straight punch to the chin that drives the lower jawbone against the base of the skull. Jaw-joint protectors such as the Brain Pad were specifically designed to prevent this injury. Best $25 you'll spend. (The next best $25, BTW, is a pro-level groin protector.)

If I were just starting boxing and I knew what I know now, I would have spent my first $50 on a Brain Pad and a groin protector instead of gloves.
