I'm also 19 and feel the same way!!!! I already have knee problems.

But my stupidity was a few years ago when a friend was preparing for his shodan. We were all goofing around and another student whispered in my ear that everybody was going to run at him as fast as we could. We all got up and of course I was the only one to run at him. He rolled at my knees and I didn't react quickly and wam. Swollen knee for about a week. Luckily it wasn't that bad. Just kept me out of class for that week which was miserable.
