    I am into my 5th month of training and have missed at least a month and a half due to a hyperextended knee (2 weeks out for that) and a seperated shoulder (1 month for that). Then I got married so I was out a week for that.

    I was really pissed about that shoulder because I was just starting to submit people and actually apply some of the stuff I was being taught. When I came back, it was like I had forgotten everything I learned.

    Two steps forward, one step back.

    ^^^ lol Marriage counts as an injury. Also hyper extended knee? after 5 months of training? your a white belt and your practicing kneebars??

    BJJ -For me i was out 2 weeks because of hyper extended elbow. Then start going back just for technique and to watch. Slowly working back into rolling.. Not pushing it

    Judo - 1 year do to two subluxed shoulders... happened probably 4 times total.. just had to heal.

    The hyperextended knee was a freak injury that I sustained while not paying attention during warm-ups. I was doing cartwheels and my body weight shifted forward as I landed on my front leg. I didn't notice it at all during the class and the rest of the day but at about 3am I shifted in my sleep and sat straight up from the pain. I know...I'm embarassed. :redface:

    Done BJJ for 3/4 years now
    Nothing else really. Boxed a tiny bit when i was young, not seriously though
    dabbled in capoeira a little, but i just wanted to learn all the cool flips and rolls, but apparently i had to learn the kicks first.
    Did about a month of choi lay fut, got sick of doing forms all class.
    Did one class of ninjitsu, destroyed everyone including the instructor when it got to the ground fighting, years b4 i started BJJ. After my training of seeing a few UFC events and knowing what a RNC and the guard were. Man I was a technical genius. LOL
    Oh yea we're talking about injuries aye? Sorry, no sleep, rambling.
    Um, out for a month with an seperated AC joint. 4 months with a knee injury (not from BJJ). About a year to a year and a half in total with my neck. And countless other injuries causing me to take a few classes off. Most of this was before I understood what overtraining and going light meant.
    edited because i don't think $ is a number
