    Blinking when getting punched bad habit?

    My mother went to slap me last night in the dark and I closed my eyes feeling like coward right now! I wrestled in hs and boxed feel like I forgot how to fight since I blinked when my mother went to strike me?

    Blink?
    Reflex?
    A real man lets flying objects blind him.


    I have never lost a sock.

    When I slap your mother in the dark she asks for another but never blinks.

    It's called "menace reflex" and you couldn't stop it if you wanted to. Put your face against a glass window and have someone on the other side throw a tennis ball at your eyes. Or put the right side of your face against a mirror, looking into the mirror at another person standing to your left side, near enough that they appear in the mirror only inches from the left side of your face. Then have them throw a punch at the reflection of your face that they see in the mirror. You'll blink every time, even though you know it's coming. In the latter case, there isn't even any danger of your eye being hit but it still responds to what it sees rather than what you know (and without asking for your permission). Nature gave that to you to protect a delicate organ. And not just humans, lots of other animals, too. Test it on your dog, their eyes also have the menace response to fast-moving objects.

    A Pomeranian isn't a "dog," it's a rat in a dog suit.

    Get to a boxing gym. Hire a trainer, use head gear & have him slowly throw punches at you while in a corner (can't move away).

    Gradually increase speed & intensity. Eventually head gear comes off.

    Your blinking may not disappear, but you'll learn to adapt to the idea of being hit & it won't be a surprise like a random slap.

    .....sigh.....

    You should learn to shift your head out of the way. If you stay in a fixed point and have a hand/fist flying at you, you're going to blink; it's involuntary.

    As Prox stated, get tagged a few times and you'll learn to recover and react.


    Like Kel's Frisbee shirt says.." I thought I saw something and then it hit me "

    I think he does have his eyes closed for just a split second. It didn't matter though, Butterbean was just like 'hmm, well that happened. Let me earn my paycheck and knock this fool out.'

    Also, I'm not sure if the German dubbing made it better or worse lol!

    This is your answer. Yes, you can probably not blink your eyes for one punch, slap or whatever IF you know it's coming. But eventually, nature is going to win that battle and you will be blinking right in time with the hits.

    Well, until the one that really cleans your clock. Then you will likely just close your eyes for a little bit.
