Yes: Repeated blows to the head can cause damage to the brain. This is why boxers and football players have issues the longer they perform.

You brain is very protected in your skull — avoid "head banging" your head into hard surfaces (which would likely only break your skin) and you should be fine.

Can I cause brain damage if my head is jerked around while I am concussed? Or does there need to be some mechanical force involved?
Post-consussion: After a concussion, for weeks the brain is at greatly increased risk of damage from repeated trauma. This would include jostling from a roller-coaster or off-roading, contact sports. Even excess visual stimulation such as reading, (yes reading!), must be avoided after a concussion until completely recovered. It is a very sensitive and potentially dangerous recovery period which must be respected. ...Read more
