    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I don't like alive training

    I was training with J.D. today, and I rolled my toe during a hard sprawl. This kind of stuff makes me want to quit alltogether, that I can be injured like this. It still kind of hurts now. :(

    For those of you wondering, my big toe cracked twice. If my big toe is anything like my elbow joint, and I don't see why not, then that means it's been severely hyper-extended and this means I'm out for a month. Statisticly I'm very unlikely to be in a streetfight where I live, so why should I expose myself to needless risk in training? :angry2:

    Well things worked out actually, because my training partner's mum died, and my toe was hurt- so we had some emotional empathy going on.

    Because you love the pain.

    Or you hate yourself.

    I nearly quit 2 weeks ago(string of injuries), but then I realized I didn't just waste a year of my life for nothing.

    My weapon art has live training. With live weapons. The classes naturally weed out the less skilled practitioners.

    Yeah.

    I sprained my big toe twice in a week about 3 months ago and it still hurts. But I ain't about to stop training while I wait for a toe injury to heal.

    This is the kind of idiocy that makes MMA useless on the street. First, it's your big toe due to your crazy "sparring" and "aliveness", then your elbow, and then BAM your legs will fall right off, and you'll reach down to grab them when BAM your arms will fall off too. Which makes the average "alive" practicioner nothing more than a soft pillow with a head.
