There are a lot of things that suck about being a female in a contact sport and one of them is getting hit in the boobs. After sparring with some kids on the weekend and getting 10 punch combos to my boobs which were already sore because I was close to that time of the month, I thought I would write a bit of my experience with this. I haven’t been hit in the boobs to much during my fights but there was one time that I did get teeped really hard with the heal of my opponents foot right into my boob, it hurt a lot, I remember complaining about it when I went back to my corner. I have been hit in the boobs more in training than in fights, mainly by beginners or people that teep high. Here are some of the boob bashings I have received.
The Heal Titty Teep- When your opponent teeps you straight in the boob with their heal, it feels like your nipple is now on your back and your boob has exploded like a balloon.
The Nipple Cripple Teep- When your opponent teeps you in the nipple with their toes and in pinches just like a giant nipple cripple.
The Nipple Flick Teep- When your opponent flicks their teep up under your boob and their toes catch you on the nipple. This feels like you nipple has been ripped off!
The High kick Nipple slap- When your opponent try’s a high kick but just doesn’t have the distance right and comes short, not short enough to miss completely. Their toes and sometimes end of the foot slaps you straight across the boob if you’re lucky which still hurts like a mofo but if it just gets your nipple oooola la it’s like a nipple cripple from hell!
The Boob Punch- When your opponent miss judges a sternum punch or just wants to punch you in the boobs?! Or if it’s a little kid who wants to go all out crazy on your boobs because they are not too sure about punching you in the face, either way it’s not as bad as the kicks most of the time but if you get sore boobs like I do at certain times of the month it can be super painful.
The knockers Knee- When your opponent has you in the clinch and has either pulled your head down or rolled you on the side and they try to knee your body or head and get a few in the middle. This one is a killer, it doesn’t happen to me very often but I know about it when it does Ouch!
In saying this, I have had no major boob injuries, a couple of bruised nipples but that’s about it. I’m just lucky I don’t have very big boobs, i feel sorry for the girls that do because they would most likely cop more boob bashings than me, I don’t get hit very often. I do have super sensitive boobs for about 2 weeks of every month, before and during my period, it sucks they hurt to even wear a sports bra or just to touch, so even getting a small knock then can be really painful for me.
Should I wear a chest protector? I probably should but they are so dam uncomfy! I wore a chest protector for my first 2 fights and it felt horrible. Big hard plastic piece of crap that gave me Madonna boobies and made me feel like a robot. I couldn’t find one that would fit me properly, one that wouldn’t cut into my ribs and leave bruises. I don’t think I could ever get away with wearing one in training where most of the boob bashing
happens, it just wouldn’t work with all the different exercises. I’m sure getting hit in the boobs hard can’t be good for us females but we can’t just go chop our boobs off. One day hopefully someone can design a more comfy and fitted chest protector for women, until then I’m just thankful for my wee bitty titties. 🙂
