I have MMA in my city but atm i must work and if i get enough money i can take it up for a while or more :)
wots the training in mma? it's HARD? i mean, ofc, compared to Aikido hehe but...
I have a mate that trains muai thai and he has been doing it for a year. Nice training but he is ALWAYS with his body fucked up. The shin, the elbow, the knee...
Well its about contact , so CONTACT yeah,but is that normal? one thing is getting a lesson when u fight a mate in ur training and other one is being always fucked and he had to interrupt some days his training because he was injured. He said while training, not while fighting :S And there is no use to lose some training days!!!
I'll try to go there and watch a training but I also wanted your opinion.

Are you asking if training MMA is hard? It can be as hard as you want it to be. If you want to do like basic jiu jitsu and striking just to understand what your watching on TV, and have fun with it then casually do it. Or you can freak out and make it your life. I bet if you go to an MMA gym they are going to kick your ass regardless, so you might want to consider taking grappling and striking separately, or somewhere else that probably wont expect as much dedication from you

Well, sure it hurts. If you want to be a good fighter, you have to fight. If you wanna fight hard, you have to train hard. Agreed?
There is nothing wrong with receiving injuries during training. I would venture to say that any training that is completely risk-free is bs, and not worth it's salt, because it is clearly not being tested competitively or against full resistance.

That's the nature of the game, of any game. I have a friend that got his knee popped from playing soccer. I have a co-worker with all his fingers seriously jammed from playing baskeball recreationally. I mean, seriously jammed.
Yesterday I read in Yahoo News about this poor kid who got completely paralized afte a line hit him in the chest (stopping his heart cold) while play teen baseball (hell, that's why I stopped playing ball when I was 10, mean ball hitting me on my ribs, couldn't use my arm for weeks.)
Once I saw this lady, very fit lady, missing a step in an aerobics class in college. She broke her ankle, just like that. I also had a friend who had surgery on her achiles tendon (it got inflamed from ballroom dancing.)
Long story short. **** happens. If you want to do something physical, not just MA, there is always the risk of physical injury. It is natural and it is to be expected. There is always a chance of hurting yourself when hitting a piñata, so just imagine the risks in combat sports.
Combat sports, where you are learning to beat the **** out of people. There is nothing wrong if the idea sounds unapealing to you; it's not everyone's cup of tea. But it is a necessity, it is normal and it is to be expected.
If a person doing ballroom dancing gets injured more often and more seriously than someone claiming to do MA, there is something fucking wrong with that picture.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

the only people who aren't getting injured (in any physical activity) are the people who aren't training worth a ****.

I've seen worse injuries in Aikido training than in Olympic TKD, BJJ and Kickboxing all together.
Man up and sign at this MMA gym asap. *****.
