I can honestly state that the furthest thing from my mind when I had 3" of steel stuck through my jacobs into my sh*t chute was smiling :tut:
Though I will admit to having a laugh about it now :D

depends on how you train really. if your training close to 100% all out you WILL be injured. you need to train to say 70-80% full on. maybe 100% once a month. but you need to listen to your body. but again depends on how you train. if its for your own protections then train 70-80 regular.
also you technique may be naff. if your constantly injuring your slef.

to be honest i think that bruises, cut, scraps should be almost EVER session.
when you wake up at nite with a start. And the last thing you hear is metal being pulled from leather before all goes quiet and dark. thats just me makin sure your tucked in for a long sleep.
