My instructor's daughter is in every sport available to girls in our area. She gets hurt more in cheerleading and gymnastics than she does in Tae Kwon Do. Seems like everytime I see her she has some other part of her body wrapped, but you're right oldman we as martial artists are subject to all kinds of injuries (my most recent one is a broken toe from sparring).

Great post, Mark. Very interesting. At first I thought that was just a list of things that JohnL did to me at the 2nd East Coast get-together, but then I read it.
