Re: worst injury you've ever heard of/seen

The worst I know of was an acquaintance performing randori during a dan test. She dropped to do a sudori and was struck, probably by a knee, in the neck. She was instantly paralyzed, thankfully temporarily. An ambulance ride and a few days in the hospital led to a full and complete recovery. She currently practices and teaches aikido. Scary at the very least.
