    What is the risk of developing a blood clot in your legs while sparing from leg kicks?

    What about in a actually mma fight?

    If you had a blood clot in your legs or anywhere for that matter how would you know it?

    What about getting a dangerous blood clot anywhere from stand up sparing or fighting?

    I'm pretty sure the risk is minimal.

    In front of my computer, it seems
    I'm unaware of blood clots developing from training. So far as I know, circulatory problems in the legs develop from being less, not more, active.

    Well if the clot travels to your heart or brain, your fucked, you can die or have a stroke/heart attack.

    Reason I asked is because I leg kicked the shit out of a sparring partner (not hard, I was just trying to get him to start trying to block them) and he asked the question and I didnt know the answer. Not to mention I have taken my fair share of legs kicks to.

    I've never heard of a single incident where this happened.
