I voted 'no'.

I do find that arguing with Erick is a hell of a lot of fun, though :)

Within reason yes, understanding why and how things works, such as joint locks, pressure points, and the like helps me understand them better.

Perhaps not just anatomy but a little physiology helps as well. And psychology. Oh and pathology. Oh and some epidemiology (when the flu season hits...); orthopedics, physiatry...

Yeah. Knowing how the joints work (and don't work), knowing how to fire specific muscles to increase efficiency. You can learn this stuff instinctively too, but being the sort of geek that I am, I appreciate being able to put names and labels on things.

It helps to understand why I hurt in various ways.
