    Doing full contact, I'd say about somewhere between 6-8. 9's probably only happened once, when a guy had his nose disfigured with a roundhouse kick. Looked pretty damn nasty... Not hospital material, but just how NASTY it looked really gave it a 9.

    If I don't feel like throwing up once or twice I consider the class to have been wasted....

    Last couple of weeks ive had a few bloody noses. Bruses on forearms, legs etc. Then 2weeks ago today I broke my nose. So I aint sure where to put my number so I put it around 6.

    im not sure i get the question... for a 5 do you mean you get that hurt every lesson? couple of bruises now and then, occasionally someone gets caught with a good shot, but its rarely serious. I guess that makes me a 4-6?

    No pain no gain as they say. If I don't get a couple of knocks I don't feel like I trained.

    Alexander Possibly insane.


    I do a few arts and they average to a 2.

    Hapkido generally gives me quite a few bruises. So 4.
    Boxing does as well. 4 as well.
    Shotokan Karate - well thats a '1'
    TKD depends where I am training. In the north '1'. When I am back down south '5', but that is rarely.

    reikislapper see you on the flypaper

    :D Depends who's giving it and who'e receiving it at the time lol.

    We had a good session yesterday with learning a bit of self defence in the practice group what the teacher does on a wednesday morning.We have a brilliant time together as we do tai chi, pushing hands and self defence sometimes and when we do the self defence I like it to be as real as they are prepared to go as I love the challenge of trying to get out of a situation without too much hassle. Anyway I do have a few bruises coming from the lesson and I really don't mind that one as it could be a lot worse if I didn't know how to defend myself properly in any of the different aspects of defence. I do have to say this though and I'm sure someone will say something when I return to the class lol, I've noticed on a lot of DVD's, videos, and various teachers I know personally they always show the attack slowly and they seem to show the defence moves in the same mannar, why is this? lol, it doesn't happen like it on the street where you live and the attacker won't be playing when he/she meets up with you, this is why it's important to be real as you can no matter what.

    Many teachers goes to fast motions right away which I personaly think isn't thebest option. I would say to it slow, understand the techniques/movements/etc and then do it full speed. otherwise it's easy to learn something wrong and then you have to un-learn and re-learn.
    Anyways, just my opinion.

    Sorry for off-topic

    Normally about 4 or 5 but we have had a broken collar bone (but the girl it happened to finished the class before going to hospital - maybe not wise but top marks for courage) and a couple of other minor knocks, I have had my cruciate ligament stretched but not broken and the tsuba of a boken hard right into the middle of my forehead and I am sure everyone else has been down this road as well.

    every session i have bruised thighs and shins from training and when sparring usually a busted nose/thick lip and even worse thighs and shins than usual. however i have been unable to drive home before due to my knee being popped out of socket by a hard thigh kick that missed the pad. it all depends who im training with. if im with the beginner classes training some of the younger ones its an easy lesson but advanced classes are definately that. you come out of them hurting no matter what your ability

    I'd say around 6. We have never had anyone carted off in a ambulence, but there has been some really nasty KOs.

    I got backed kicked in the cheek today, and my jaw still feels unakwardly alined.

    After sparing, my arms and legs are bruised. From time to time I end up with a black eye, and more than often I get bruises all over my chest from not blocking side and back kicks.

    I have had a fractured rib from a roundhouse drill, pretty much my worse injury.

    My worst injury was a badly bruised coccyx. Ouch for weeks.

    I'd say usually around 5 or 6. Besides a really intense kicking workout that will make legs just sore I have a tendency to get beat to hell when we work on techniques. Wrist locks and pressure points really work on me so those always hurt in training. My two worst injuries in class though:
    1) Some one did a hip toss where they do kind of a clothesline on me and throw me backward over their hip. They were kind of new and lost control of the throw sending me into a backflip. I didn't make it all the way aound and came crashing down on my right knee cap. Luckily nothing was broken I just strained the ligaments really bad.
    2) About a month ago we were working on dive rolls going over obstacles. I didn't plant my hand quite right and my arm gave out. All my weight came down on the top of my left shoulder. It basically caused the shoulder muscles to seize up really tight. It's taken a lot of anti-inflammatories, stretching, heat and rest to get back to normal.

    5-6. We train hard. Lots of contact drilling, and we don't hold back. It's not uncommon for everyone to have bruised arms and legs from the drilling we do. We're pretty careful on our sparring and grappling; no one feels the need to show off, so that saves us a few injuries. But every now and then we get an "oops"; we've had a broken rib, sprained wrist, a footsweep gone bad that injured both parties, but no one's ever ended up unconscious!
