Injuries healed with Fighter Fix Liniment. The best liniment for martial artists with no burn and no stink. One bottle lasts an entire year, and you can still hang out with people without burning their noses.
"I didn't take a Day 5 picture because on Day 5 the bruising was completely gone (although I was still a little sore) but here is the progression of my bruised knuckle from makiwara training. Day 1 is the day I got the bruise, a few hours after training. I applied Fighter Fix twice a day every day, and took these photos first thing in the morning for Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4."
