Ended up having to go to a lower arm specialist, who need surgery to reset it. Got 2 Titanium Plates and 12 Titanium screws. Anyway I was back on the mat for basic workout and coaching in 3 weeks after surgery and was back will full flexibility in 3 months.
No Physical Thepary required. Judo/Jujutsu was a Physical Thepary.
I totally agree P/T was from getting back on the mat. My worst injury though was when I broke my back in 89. I was in an auto accident and compressed my spine. I lost almost an inch of height and had a starburst fracture to L5, last vertabre. The fact that I am walking now is a great thing. The fact that I am still active I owe entirly to MA without it I don't know what would have happened to me.

While gently trying to pry under his chin, he wedged is forearm bone between my ribs and I felt the muscle and tendons between them rip. The scream I yelled out got my sensei's attention, but didn't get this guy to let go. Knowing he was trying to hurt me for real, I had no problem placing both hands on top of his head and burying my thumbs into his eyes. I was prepared to push my thumbs all the way to the back of his skull at this point if necessary. This got his attention and he screamed, released his grip, went to cover his now f'd up eyes and took a half step back. I dropped back to my feet and taking a half step forward, drove my knee hard into his love machine.
My sensei said, "Ed that was great. Class what you saw here was as real as it gets. Ed, let's show everyone that again." Yeah it was real, too real to do it again and man do ribs take a long time to heal. Neither of us trained any more that night and I never saw the guy in our dojo again. KENPO RULES BABY!!!!!!!!
Nothing as sad as a poorly executed lie.

Dude ,where's the lie? This happened in front of a classroom of witnesses. Do you need names? Don't let the **** you see on youtube fool ya. If you've never trained with a serious Kenpo student who trains groundwork and strikes you're in for quite a surprise. Just ask the wrestling coaches I train with.

That's five minutes on Sherdog. You really should do more research before trying to speak about stuff you don't know much about.
I know you guys resolved this, but he was referring to this kinda thing:
"Reason is a choice. Wishes and whims are not facts, nor are they a means to discovering them. Reason is our only way to grasping reality -- it's our basic tool of survival. We are free to evade the effort of thinking, to reject reason, but we are not free to avoid the penalty of the abyss we refuse to see."

Yes we are. Had he known what kind of foole and idiot I was I'm sure he would have done like all else and just ignored me and my sic twisted humor.
I just click on your link Oncelost. Ma always told me I had a twin. That was pretty funny.

It's one of my fav's...no offense intended, Backdraft.
Back to injuries, I had surgery on my left elbow a few months ago for cubital tunnel syndrome - like carpal tunnel but in your elbow instead of your wrist. It's a bitch to work with - I'm finally able to do more than a few push-ups without it flaring up, but rolling on it hurts like a sonuvabitch. Other than that, there's been the dislocated right shoulder, dislocated right ankle, hairline fracture on the jaw, swollen...um..."boyz," and the normal pops and cracks in the neck, ankles, wrists, and knees.

It's all good. :)
Wanna talk about northern Vietnam? :P
Speaking of injuries, to get on topic, I've yet to have anything real serious, but I've been headbutted, kneed in the face, and stuff like that on accident. Worst I've ever had was when my instable shoulder got a muscle inflammation. That hurt like a ************.
