Endorse BrainPad?



Let The Below Information Help You See The Light!

The info is out there and now the main stream media is asking the question
"Why wasn't the 1993 Brain-Pad study not taken seriously and why the retail community has complete disregarded carrying Brain Pad."

With over 600 class action suits in the NFL Brain-Pad's science has been asked for by attorneys representing former NFL players and the damage inferior mouth guard is being studied in Kansas City currently by a independent team of medical professionals. Even with all this, many can not comprehend why after 2 decades of science and mandates in the United States and Middle East in combat arts why Brain-Pad is not on every youth playing sports! We do have a responsibility to reduce force, and products that increase force should not be sold.

NFL Funded
Mouth Guard Testing 2011

Below is the NFL funded mouth guard testing and analysis on the major (Mouth Guard) brands in the industry. As you will see as far as impact forces being transferred to the head, the upper mouth guards actually accelerated impact forces compared to wearing no mouth guard at all. Only the Brain-Pad Jaw-Joint Protector™ reduced impact forces being transferred to the head. This testing assures individuals who wear the Brain-Pad Jaw-Joint Protector™ are protected by the finest protection currently on the market.


Effect of Mouthguards on Head Responses and Mandible Forces in Football Helmet Impacts.
DAVID C. VIANO,1 CHRIS WITHNALL,2 and MICHAEL WONNACOTT 2
1ProBiomechanics LLC, 265 Warrington Rd., Bloomfield Hills, MI 48304-2952, USA; and 2Biokinetics and Associates Ltd., 2470 Don Reid Drive, Ottawa, ON K1H 1E1, Canada
(Received 21 June 2011; accepted 8 September 2011) Associate Editor Stefan M. Duma oversaw the review of this article.



RESULTS AT LOW SPEED




RESULTS AT HIGH SPEED

The testing at Biokinetics and Associates Ltd was funded by the National Football League. Their support of the research on the effects of mouth guards on head responses is appreciated. The opinions presented here are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the NFL. The development of the articulating mandible for the Hybrid III, 8,41 cadaver testing and development of biofidelity corridors for impacts to the chin 6,7,9 and the series of helmet testing reported here were completed while the lead author was a member of the NFL's MTBI Committee and oversaw the research.

*Independent Observations by Dr. Tim Walilko, Phd., Biomedical Engineer at Applied Research Associates - 10 28 2011 "Brain-Pad's performance at 6.7m/s condition was far superior to any other appliance tested. 6.7 m/s Condition - showed a 26.9% reduction in H.I.C. & a 32.4% reduction in overall mandable forces. Both these results are statistically significant.
Other appliances tested actually had increases in S.I. & H.I.C. suggesting that there is an increased risk of concussion with their use. 9.5 m/s Condition - Even in the higher velocity impacts the PRO Plus was superior to the other appliances.".

This is the 3rd in a series of tests that showed the Brain-Pad significantly reduces forces to the base of the skull, TMJ and Brain. The other 2 were 1993 and 2005.

However Forrester weighed in 9 kilos heavier than Jusilla. The spread was outside of the allowed weight spread, so the two did a 3 round exhibition.

SHEPPARD VS WILESMITH
BOUT RECAP

Photos by Matt Roberts/Getty Images AsiaPac

This was the nights main event which matched up USA's Mike "Lightning" Sheppard (22-10-1/16) against Robert "Thunderlegs" Wilesmith (15-0) of Australia. This bout had a lot of hype and drama leading up to it so the question was, "Would the bout be bigger than the hype?"

While many knew who Mike Sheppard was, (Current IKF FCR World Champion & Pro Boxer) there was little if anything known about the Robert Wilesmith and this is where the drama rose up. There were a series of circumstances that lead up to this bout (Click Here To Read Them...) with emotions and passion spilling in from all angles. Wilesmith had stated an amateur record of 15-0 and a pro record of 15-0 with 14 KO/TKOs. Although there were questions surrounding proof of his previous bouts claiming the undefeated combined pro and amateur record of 30-0, Sheppard didn't care. He simply trained as he would have for any other opponent coming into the ring claiming a 30-0 record. This being said, to put it straight out there, both fighters had trained for a strong World Title bout.

Round one started slow, as we all thought it would. Sheppard wanted to see what kind of "Thunderlegs" Wilesmith had in his leg kicks he kept hearing Robert talk about and Wilesmith wanted to see what kind of "Lightning" Sheppard had in his punching since Sheppard is also a pro boxer. However neither fighter showed the other anything in round one that would send any kind of a message. Sheppard landed some head and body shots while Wilesmith got in a few jabs but not one strong landing leg kick. Towards the end of the round though the two clashed heads, which after the bout created some surprising stories in the Australian Press. Wilesmith would admit to others both in the ring and over the next two days that he had brought his head down and forward just like he did when he played Rugby Football. But he was surprised when the one who got cut was him.

Clearly the headbutt was caused when Wilesmith's head leaned into Sheppard, however, days after the bout, Wilesmith had a different memory of the moment when giving an interview to the Australian media. "We clashed heads," Glasson-Wilesmith explained. "There was a bit of controversy. I was watching the video and it looks like he did it intentionally." Well, to begin with, Wilesmith is right on one account, it did look like he did it intentionally, but the "HE" was Wilesmith, NOT Mike Sheppard. We here as eye witnesses of this bout were pretty shocked to read this on the internet. Although an uneventful round, as the round came to an end, there was no question as to who won it. If not for the inexperience of one of the Australian judges, Sheppard would have won round 1 on all 3 judges cards, 10-9. However, one of the Australian judges gave round 1 to Wilesmith, despite him only landing a few jabs.

As round 2 started, Wielsmith's corner had stopped his head from bleeding so the fight was on again. However, as this round started, Sheppard realized he wasn't afraid of any "Thunderlegs" so he came out strong. Sheppard rocked Wilesmith with body shots and left - right combinations along with several kicks including a good head kick. To his credit, Wielsmith proved one thing, that he had a hard head. As the round was closing out, Sheppard landed some bombs on Wilesmith that rocked him. Instead of covering up as most fighters would to protect themselves, Wilesmith smiled at Sheppard and actually waved him to come again. Wilesmith wanted everyone to think that he was having no problem taking Sheppard's blows, yet in reality, it was just the jesters of a fighter who had no answer to his opponent's offense. Saying that Wilesmith weathered Sheppards storm is not a compliment of skill... Having a hard head is not a compliment of skill... However, it's what Wilesmith kept doing which seemed to be the only things keeping him in the fight. As the round came to a close, this time there was no question as all three judges saw this round easily 10-9 for Sheppard.

As round 3 started, Sheppard came out with no hesitation scoring punch after punch to Wilesmith's head and body. What many had hoped to be a tremendous fight quickly turned into a one sided frenzy. Sheppard was now landing shot after shot without any real resistance. Wilesmith would continue his only reply which was a smile back at Sheppard as if he wasn't hurt, but at ringside, the message was clear. From the corner prior to the round, Wilesmith was drained. Not only did he not have any answers to Sheppards attack, he had no gas to stand to weather Sheppards shots anymore. Sheppard charged several times as Wilesmith just turned his back to him. It was clear this bout was coming to an end soon.

An article on line after the bout made the comment "Thunderlegs once again proving why he has that nickname as he destroyed Sheppard's legs." However, we had to ask what fight the writer was watching because Wilesmith's legs were no concern to Sheppard in this fight. Even Wilesmith's corner wondered why he never even turned his hips into any of his kicks. Maybe it was inexperience in the ring or fear of Sheppard countering? Who knows. What we do know is Wilesmith didn't throw "1" strong landing leg kick on Sheppard all night, so to say Wilesmith "Destroyed" Sheppards legs comes from the eyes of a blind man.

As we past the 1 minute mark in round 3, Sheppard drove the bloodied and battered Wilesmith into his own corner. It was there that Wilesmith would turn his back again to try and escape Sheppard. After referee Dan Stell stopped Sheppard from his attack, the two squared up again. A few blows later and Wilesmith was leaning over. Sheppard could have very well landed several telling head shots, but almost as if he felt sorry for him, choose to go to the body instead to finish Wilesmith off. Finally Wilesmith went down. Stell started the count, but Wilesmith would not make the count. This long awaited bout was over and Elizabeth, West Virginia, USA's Mike Sheppard would win the IKF World Title by KO at 1:33 of round 3. Sheppard improved to 23-10-1 with 17 wins by stoppage while Wilesmith adds a loss to his record. A loss that will likely be his last kickboxing bout.

Let us make one thing very clear.
There is an article out on the internet (HERE) that has some comments such as "but the loss of blood form the head gash and a broken nose took its toll." Bloodloss had NOTHING to do with this bouts outcome. Sheppard simply beat Wilesmith down with shot after shot. Yes, Wilesmith was bleeding quite a bit, but to say the blood was "Gushing" is an over statement. We have seen a lot worse blood in some elbow cut Muay Thai fights for example.

Along with this comment, Wilesmith has made quotes such as, "If it wasn't for the head clash, I reckon I would have won." Well, not sure what bout he was thinking about because after round 2 started, we saw this bout only going one way, Sheppard's!

At age 47, Robert Glasson-Wilesmith got his shot. We will say that he "Walked the Walk" when he could have turned away. He took his criticism all the way to the ring. However, with comments like the ones we noted, we can only hope his ego does not overshadow his deserved pride. The only sad thing is how this bout is now being played out in the media with quotes from Wilesmith and writers who interviewed him saying, it was a "Tremendous fight" or an "Out right War" are far from the truth. This was no close bout. As we noted above, Saying that Wilesmith weathered Sheppards storm is not a compliment of skill... and having a hard head is not a compliment of skill... But it can keep you standing...

When Wilesmith quotes to a paper, "He hit me with his best and I kept going. He kicked me fair in the head and I laughed at him." although factual quotes, last we heard, taking shots are not ways to score points... If this were true, Ken Shamrock should have been declared the winner in his last bout with Tito Ortiz in the UFC (The Final Chapter).

If Wilesmith's goal along was to prove his toughness to his critics, well, he won that battle. However toughness and being a winner don't always fall into the same result. But if this was what he was looking for, Wilesmith can have that title of being "Tough!" The title of someone who could take a lickin and keep on tickin... At least for 3 rounds anyway...

Coach Kirian (Center) of CSA Gym
"What this picture means to me as a Coach, it highlights years of hard work, dedication, sacrifice, blood, sweat, tears, wins, losses, joy, heartbreak, fights every weekend, tons of travel and time away from our families, through it all these people have been my friends, my team and my "other"family, they work all day everyday (sometimes with 2 and 3 "real" jobs as well) to get better, be better, to be more then they were yesterday....what makes this picture so special to me is that many of these people represent the forgotten, the overlooked, and the damaged... in this picture you will see abused and neglected children from broken homes, people born with debilitating chronic health issues, immigrants who came to this country with nothing, women who have survived and overcome domestic violence, people who have come back from career ending injuries, people who lost their parents far to young, recovered alcoholics and drug users, people who were once well over 300 Pounds, people who have been institutionalized and given up on... what do I see?? I only see Survivors, Fighters, and Champions....People who no matter what life has thrown at them NEVER GAVE UP...this is my Family!"

Results From James Wallis'
"ADRENALIN FIGHT NIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP"
March 3rd, 2012 - Swansea, Wales




At a packed Oceania Nightclub James Wallis retained his IKF European title with a clear points win over Germany's Rene Tauber who despite an impressive record did not threaten at any time to take the title from Wallis. In the co-main event the exciting fight for the IKF Amateur World title between Kelly Mainwaring and Monika Markowska ended in a draw. The 3 judges unable to split them after 5 hard fought rounds.

Holland's Balentien
Sends Video Message For Nahe
On Their Upcoming
World Title Fight In The USA!

Today, 15 year old Junior Flyweight World Contender Tisha Balentien of Holland and her camp released a video message for her upcoming fight against undefeated and multiple IKF World Classic Champion...14 year old Katrina "The Storm" Nahe of Antioch, California, USA.

The IKF Muay Thai World Title match is scheduled for Saturday, May 5th, 2012 in Oakland, California, USA. The fight will be held at the Oakland Convention Center. Balentien's message is clear,

"I'm going to win the world title."

The video message includes Balentien training for her bout and showing explosive kicks and boxing techniques. Balentien's trainer, does not mix his words and simply says "The Dutch fighters have the best Muay Thai in the world and I'm not impressed with American style Muay Thai fighters...Tisha is going to kick Katrina's ---!"...he ends with a big smile :)

Although Juniors, this will be one of the most anticipated Muay Thai fights in a long time. With the aggressive fighting style of both young ladies, it's hard to imagine that either will take a step back! It will be an exciting and memorable evening in a Las Vegas fashion for two of the best junior female fighters in the World to showcase their skills!

Johnny Davis' AK Promotions is proud to bring this fight together. As with his many promotions before, this will be a first rate show. The Junior title will be overseen by world recognized IKF Officials, specially trained as officials for Muay Thai.

"Unlike some promoters who promote their own fighters for titles, I don't have any ties with either fighter." said Davis. "I'm just excited I was given the opportunity to bring these two fighters together. As an event Promoter, I just want the best fighter to win! Period! That's what its all about."

Davis and everyone involved in this bout are just wanting both fighters to do as asked of any and every fighter... To end their bout knowing they gave their all! As the saying goes, if the bout is close, we would hate to be one of the judges. For big fights like this, trainers always tell their fighters, "Don't leave it to the judges!" That's not an insult to ANY judge, just a reality of every trainer and fighter. No one wants to question a decision, and chances are, with the way these two ladies ROCK, it may not go to a decision!

If you are a fight fan, this is surly one of those "MUST SEE" match-ups!
Without a doubt, It's going to be awesome!
