Broken toe, partial torn off big toe nail, sprained wrists (obviously), sore back/hips (ukemi/breakfalls) and mildly sprained knees when the mat monster rose up and grabbed my feet while doing tenkan etc...

I'm dealing with bruised ribs right now. I was doing a non-traditional pin (in our syllabus anyway), holding uke down with my side while arm-barring him while leading class. I didn't have it in tight, because I was showing a newbie how to do the pin. While I was explaing, the uke based up to his knees and came up into my ribs. Ouch! They still hurt a couple of weeks later, but I can at least do ukemi now (it hurts way worse when I sneeze than when I take a breakfall, go figure?) I broke my little toe in a demonstration, it got caught between tatami. That was a [censored], especially because I didn't want to look like a wimp jumping around the mat. So I pretended that it didn't happen, and proceeded to limp around for the next month and a half or so.

When studying for my nikyu test, I was working with a relatively new student on keri waza, which involves a higher level of ukemi than this student had. I didn't feel comfortable about throwing him, but one of our sensei's was right there and I was going slow. When I threw this poor guy, he came down on his collar bone, luckily didn't break it but he couldn't roll for months. Considering how big this guy is though, I think that he got very lucky that he didn't break it. That's the worst injury I've seen in the dojo, and I'm greatful for that.

OOOKAY! Blow to the head and you apologize for that being the only accident you have to offer?! Yikes, I'd hate to see what you consider bad. ^_^

I'm wondering if the majority of injurys occur in larger dojos. Mine is pretty small and I'm incredibly lucky to have a Sensei that can focus on all of us, usually we have a class of 4-5 students along with assistant sensei, so he can quickly spot flaws in our techniques.


I've also heard that in larger dojos that sometimes, i'm guessing newer people, get together and don't really know what to do and they must rely solely on observations in order to do a technique. Anyone start off like that here?
