AikiWeb Poll for the week of July 11, 2004:

Which role were you when you last got injured during aikido practice?

I don't do aikido

Here are the current results (http://www.aikiweb.com/polls/results.html?poll_id=228).

I haven't been notiably injured during Aikido... A few tweeks here and there but never anything I would consider an injury....

Lets see, i think i was nage when my toe got stuck between the mats. And i think i was nage when my sempai stomped on my foot leaving it bruised for months.
Does that count or do i have to go back to the real injury?

I voted for uke, but with further thought remembered that I got "fingered" in the eye as nage during jiyu-waza last week. Fortunately, no REAL injuries to date on either score...(but you always worry)

I voted nage. I was kneeling on one knee with my foot up on the toes and uke landed on my heel. Really thought I'd broken my big toe, can't believe I didn't. That was several months ago and it still hasn't fully recovered.

Hi folks,

I guess the interesting part of the last two polls was that there was a slight disparity in the results between:

Which role do you think suffers more injuries during aikido training? (http://www.aikiweb.com/polls/results.html?poll_id=227)
Which role were you when you last got injured during aikido practice? (http://www.aikiweb.com/polls/results.html?poll_id=228)
... with the latter poll showing about four percentage points worth of injuries for nage. As always, these polls aren't meant to be truly scientifically accurate, but it's an interesting statistic, nonetheless.

I couldn't vote... The only time I've been injured was during warmups. I thought that I finally had forward rolling down, even on my left side, and was doing running tumbling (with energy). I collapsed my left arm, landed on my shoulder, and that was the end of that class :hypno: . The general practioner and the orthopedist couldn't find anything wrong, even with X-rays and MRI's, but the shoulder is still a little weak four months later. On the plus side, my forward rolls are better these days.
