Dude, I'm not much older than you, as in 25. But I got to tell you. Don't call yourself a poet.

In any case, I don't do striking sports because I'm blind in one eye, meaning I've got no peripherals on that side and I'll probably get fucked. That's my excuse, and some bullies and a doctor all told me not to do it.
I'm probably still going to do kyokushin anyway, because there's less tagging in the face. And I'm a sucker for belts. I'm technically disabled and I do a job requiring using my brain every day, and I'm still willing to give it a go. I just can't afford anything other than bjj at the moment.
Also, I'm pretty sure you're a big V. With a lot of female friends. There'll be one you've had a crush on for years too I'll bet. When you grow balls, you'll get laid.
I understand that some people are mad because I made some conclusion's on the implicit means of admin's actions. But I did what I did because I thought the thread would be driven into the wrong way if the first post was a troll with authority.
This would hopefully answer Epeeist, I wasn't doing what I did just to "get back at him" but to point out that me being a ***** has nothing to do with the answer to the question. I want to decrease the amount of people that would copy him.

-I am also leaving the "serious business" to "grown ups" by asking for opinions from experienced sportsman like yourself, and asking doctors of what they think. But I'm sad that you never took me seriously. =[

What kind of real artist or poet just wants to sit on the bench until their niceness and dollars get them a nice girl, so they can settle down and have kids? That poem would suck.
Being an artist is about getting out there and experiencing all those emotions and living in the moment and sucking the marrow out of life and all that jazz. Martial arts are a part of that for a lot of awesome people, adding to their toolbox for going out and being a bold adventurer. Fighting arts prepare a person to live in the moment and accept negative possibilities. It's like Marc Denny says: "Nothing puts you in the moment like a stick buzzing past your head." You are at your most alive when something could happen and you are responsible for protecting yourself. Personally my concern is that stickfighting is going to injure my hand and I won't be able to be an artist anymore, but that concern is what makes me feel alive when sparring.
So yeah, I'm a sensitive snowflake that also approves of people hitting each other.
In all honesty, most everyone here has told you their opinions. You didn't like it.
People are saying "Man the **** up" and you're saying "Don't hurt my feelings or I'll pen a ribald sonnet".
From what I've figured out in my brief time in judo/bjj, a large part of learning to fight is learning how to take a beating. That doesn't mean just getting smashed until you build calluses on your eyelids, I mean more in the sense that over time you learn "I can handle this".
For example: Say some spazzy whitebelt (much like myself) is trying to get an RNC on you. They haven't managed to get your neck so they're just crushing the **** out of your chin. This hurts, sometimes it really hurts. When you first do grappling you'll think "****, ouch, tap".
This is because, as a noob, you're a *****. As you suffer through more things, you learn to take more. You triumph over adversity. Over time, you learn what you can do and what you can take. You learn what pain is important to be aware of, and what can be ignored.
I'm not saying it's all of learning to fight, but it's a part, and it's an important part. You're trying to avoid it.
Think on this, take up kyokushin, and be happy. If I had two working eyes I'd box, but I don't, so I have a legitimate concern about repeated hits to one side of my face. If I were a *****, I'd do kyokushin because it makes you hard. But then I'm no striker.
I don't know whose sig it is, but it's a good one: "The trick to fighting two people at once is to be tougher than both of them".
Just try something. Go into a club, see how they train. Try judo first, it'll man you up good.
EDIT: Just read your edit.
You should've just written
"100xobm, the sculpted Adonis,
He can actually see through time,
For the first time in my life,
My Poems actually rhyme"
****, learn to take some teasing, *****.
