    Most of my bleeding in judo ('cept torn nails and such) has been the result of warm up games. Nose, nose, lip, nose, lip. In that order, and there'll be more :-)

    Bleeding's not an injury, unless it doesn't stop on its own.

    My only serious martial arts injuries were from judo. Cracked collarbone and a dislocated shoulder, both from a large yellow belt doing a really sloppy tomoe nage. That being said, do judo. Way too much fun to pass up.

    Also, I have been hurt more throwing and being thrown slowly than at regular speeds with clean technique. I swear, the more my training partner and I try to be gentle the more we crash into each other and/or land badly.
    That's not to say you try to bury Uke in the floorboards by any means, but trust in both your and their Ukemi enough to do the throw right. And if the impacts are getting to you, that's why you have crash pads.

    In 2 years of Judo, i've broken the third meta carpel in my left hand and ripped open my left big toe.

    The nurse that stitched me up said that toe injuries were pretty common in Judo.

    I have only been injured once grappling, and only because I insisted upon holding someone in the scissors that I should have let go. The vast majority were krotty.

    I have, however, injured a number of people while grappling.

    I don't go %100 anymore.

    From what I understand mallet finger is caused by wearing a brace on an injured finger too long. Same thing happened to a buddy of mine who cut his finger. If I break a finger or a toe I resort to buddy taping.

    Mallet Finger has many different causes. The doctor who treated me asked if I played rugby.
    I can see how over use of a splint could weaken the extensor tendon

    I was disscussing my injury with the sensei (60+ years old, judoing for 50 of those). He showed me his fingers...what a mess!

    A variation of Judo was using my samurai under close combat where a katana was rendered useless. Needless to say, the samurai would use this Judo-style to throw their opponent to the ground, in an attempt to land them, and all their heavy armor ****, on their necks. The idea was to end the battle in one fell swoop of one said Judo-like technique.

    So, if you are practicing JUDO, there's always a chance that someone will break your neck if they throw you too hard. But as for being likely... well, I don't believe so.

    Just do good breakfalls.
