    Am I being redundant again?

    Actually I hope that wrestler dude ain't reading this. But wait! He can't, hahahahaha.
    Unless he has a braille monitor.

    "[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
    A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

    Well, assuming it really did happen, the wrestler. There is absolutely no fucking point in trying to hurt someone in training (in someone elses dojo, to boot.), so I think he deserved what he got.

    The wrestler actually worked with my sensei outside the dojo for a while and was always trying to prove himself out there too. Didn't see him long enough to know him. Was probably a real nice guy outside of his need to prove his worth. Wish we had it on vid.
    A Hapkido instructor in FL a few months later who had medical training for the OR actually told me what the guy did to my ribs. Ribs suck!

    You should try having no ribs before you make such an anatomically stupid statement.

    I started MT/BJJ fairly recently, actually wanted a chance to post on this injury b/c i think it's fairly common but unknown to most newbies and can be potentially serious. I say this cause I see people make alot of the mistakes I list below and cause I researched for like a month before started in MMA and didn't find any warnings of this being a possibility (even though all the hospital workers mentioned they see this frequently).

    Basically I got a knee infection off a mat. The infection entered through an abrasion on my knee (ie: mat burn). I didn't notice it among other bigger bumps and bruises I had. It progressed pretty quickly. Within 2 days i went from having a mild pain in my knee to not being able to walk. I also got chills and a fever. Oral antibiotics didn't work and I ended up having to go to the ER. They drained it (which was painful as hell), and gave me some IV antibiotics.

    Anyway, it's now approaching 2 months since the infection cleared and my knee still isn't nearly 100%. I'm actually kinda beginning to wonder if it'll ever be. If the infection got to the bone I could've lost use of the knee entirely and obviously if this was a hundred years back I'd probably be dead.

    So yeah, although I'm sure most wrestlers know this, anyone unfamiliar w/ grappling should understand that wrestling mats and gyms tend to breed resistant bacteria, so the potential for infection is higher. So:

    1- Make sure the mats are cleaned frequently
    2- Scan yourself for small, unnoticable injuries after training
    3- If you get a bump or swelling anywhere, check to see if it is hot or a point has formed on it (usually yellow), since these are signs of infection
    4- Cover up any cuts or breaks in your skin before getting on a mat, even if they're not actually bleeding.

    That last one I see violated alot. People walking in w/ fresh uncovered scabs, etc. Anyway, that's my story. Sorry for derailing the thread, i think we were talking about wrestling being gay or something right?

    See "Iceman140's : You might be in a rednaeck dojo if:" thread and stop trainin in them redneck dojos. :>)

    Sounds like good advice though. I always wondered about the big sweaty guy dripping his sweat in my eyes and face from the top mount.
