    Some good info in this thread, I'll make sure to not dislocate any of my own ribs.
    Hmm. Wish I'd thought of that. :laughing9

    Not at all Tonu, if you practice t3h d34dly you can expect d34dly injuries, if you play with fire you'l get burnt :new_uklia

    Besides, I think you're the number one Slovakian WT expert on the forums.

    Pauli, care to elaborate on this?

    I have excellent posture but have fractured and slipped my ribs. My injuries have been due to being slammed around on the ground and some submissions which have put pressure on the area (which I love and am not going to stop anytime soon). When I'm slammed on my back especially, I feel it through my whole ribcage and the pain/slight impairment to movement and breathing can radiate through the front and side of my ribcage. The only related note on posture is its hell wake up in the morning.

    Personally I've never taken any solid amount of rest when I've had slipped ribs which has probably caused further structural damage. So if you have the patience Money, give it a rest. You can still do other exercise but choose what you do wisely.

    What fixed it for me is rest and deciding not to roll with folks over a certain weight for a while. I reinjured myself twice when I'd finish off class rolliing with someone 170-190 (I'm 125) and they'd drop on it or get me in a tight crossbody and it'd pop.

    A muscle relaxer and some good anti-inflammatories helped as well.

    This last time I was doing randori with a guy 6 inches taller and almost 100 lbs heavier than me. He came in for o soto gari or ouchi gari, and I tried to turn him around and turn it into tani otoshi. Needless to say, that didn't work quite as intended. He just sent me down even harder. He came down too, but landed right on top of me with both my arms pinned to my chest.

    I actually got kicked with a Muay Thai kick from a Krav Maga instructor. :eusa_danc

    About the expertize - thank you, but it almost sounds like a curse, especially around here... :eng101:
    I'm also no expert. And not just because I'm the only person from Slovakia on these boards doing the chun (Tomas Drgon, the Baltimore judoka, actually used to train at some of the places I frequented too...)
