    Was just at tompkins sparring. Caught a jab on my glove, which got pushed straight into my chin, pushing my whole jaw back. Now I can't close my mouth completely.
    1/4 inch of space or so between my molars. Can barely get my front teeth past each other.

    It's the left side that's bad, and no, getting hit on the right sides doesn't fix it. We tried that. Got caught clean with a left hook, didn't help :hs:

    Never fucking ends. My GOOD knee is fucked.
    After sparring, buddy wanted to train getting out of bad positions on the ground, so started off sitting, took his back and he was defending rear naked.
    He turtled, I continued working on his back, he defended and rolled and ended up in my guard.
    I pulled rubber guard, and heard my my knee snap, sounded like someone snapped their fingers, loud. Didn't hurt at the time, so I held on, and ended up locking in a triangle.

    Felt fine the rest of the night, then I woke up at about 6am this morning to go to the bathroom took one step and couldn't do it. Woke my gf up because I was fucking crying.

    not swollen at all, no bruising, the outside of my knee is very sore to the touch, and right where my femur meets my tibia i can't even touch. Hurts like hell to walk on it :mad:

    Hold your glove to your forehead then instead of in front of your chin. Unless you were trying to parry the shot. I've had something similar happen when I was trying to parry a shot and didn't step outside his jab. I just always hold my jab hand to my forehead now like it's glued when they are in striking range.

    Sucks about the knee too bro, I have a horrible knee (broke it when I was younger and never got it fixed) so when I roll, if my knee bends to far it locks up. I can still rock the Rubber guard just not as well as I should.

    LOL when you have your hand out in front and not on your cheek or forehead it's easy to have it pushed back by a punch.

    hand was too low, fingers were on my cheek bone, pinkies rolled in, and not right against my face. When he hit my glove, it moved back the little space that was between, and the bone at the bottom of my palm slammed into my chin bone
