    Fuckin ninjas.
    C'mon Phrost, get serious...
    We all know that ninjas don't have to go to the ground or scramble, they have smokebombs.

    Funny injury:

    Repeatedly curled under toe (funny painful, not funny haha)

    Another one is not from any direct injury that I remember, but I didn't notice it until after I started BJJ, so I'll chalk it up to that. My fingers are somewhat flexible, I can over straighten them a bit and make them bend upwards about 10 degrees. Well, one day I was pointing something out to a girl, who goes "Oh my God, what the hell is wrong with your finger!." When I look, the last segment of my finger (where the nail is) won't straighten out all the way. So at the first knuckle my finger is 10 degrees above horizontal, and at the last knuckle my finger is back to horizontal. It makes my finger look like an old man arthritis finger! It's only on my right index finger, so I'm assuming I got a super minor sprain that permanently disfigured me for life!

    Number of bottles of beer downed by me and my girlfriend within a half hour while playing the Channel 7 "how many times will they say 'snow' game" during the "Blizzard of '06": 3.5 each.

    Both of these injuries took place in the summer of 2003:

    1.) This injury happened to my BJJ instructor at the time (Black Belt, KP's current instuctor), not me: While going for a takedown on the sweatiest guy on the planet, he slipped in a puddle of the guy's sweat and fractured his ankle.

    2.) This injury is extremely minor but humorous: I am a big strong guy. It took me many moons to realize that I was not rolling in a relaxed state. Because I used so much strength, BJJ instructor from above was a little rough with me (I totally deserved this), and in a no-gi class gripped my wrist so hard that it bruised in an exact imprint of his hand. You could see the fingers and everything. It was awesome.

    Within the last year: We were working on a V-sweep on a standing opponent and the guy practicing it on me got really enthusiastic and swung his leg around REALLY hard -- right into my nose. His heel nailed me right in the face and knocked me clean off my feet. The cartilage in my nose has never been the same.

    It's the sweep that looks like an armbar from the guard and can be done from a failed armbar, in fact. Or did I get the name wrong?

    God I love BJJ.

    I doubt you got the name wrong, for your school/affiliation.
    Which doesn't help a lot, everyone has a different name for every technique.

    I think you might be talking about what I call a pendulem sweep. Maybe.

    Sounds like a pendulum sweep.

    Or a flower sweep.

    Which are identical.

    Yep. That'd be the one. Pendulum sweep is another name I've heard for it.

    This has been plaguing me for the past 3 weeks or so, and is the weirdest thing I've had -

    I got taken down, and landed hard on my elbow. Now the elbow joint itself is fine, but the area went deep brown and swelled up nicely.

    Nowadays, the swelling has gone down totally, and I can do whatever I want, but if the skin over the elbow moves too far in one direction, it hurts like all buggery. (The sort of pain that leaves you feeling nauseous)

    I think I may have torn the fascia in my elbow, but in reality I have no idea. I've been taping the hell out of it while doing training, and it seems to be okay when I do that.

    It's totally annoying because it seems like a totally superficial injury, but it prevernts me from leaning on my elbow, and it's the side I like to work half guard from.

    Got all spazzy and kneed myself on the hand when mounted. My middle finger is now much wider than any of my other fingers at the base.

    Got pushed backwards from sitting down with my foot in line with the shin flat against the ground in september some time and it still hurts a bit.
