Re: about training capacity
Huh, that's a lot of injuries. There's always some risk but that seems maybe more like a pattern. People being too reckless or doing things hard that they don't have the skill to do hard safely?
Or not enough focus on ukemi skills (which incorporate far more than just 'falling')?
Conditioning (strength and range of motion and flexibility, etc) can help prevent some injuries but not all of them.
I'm not sure what you mean by being 'powerful enough', though. I can see how lack of physical conditioning like weakness or stiffness might make you vulnerable but conditioning won't really make up for lack of ukemi skills, I don't think -- which mostly don't involve being 'powerful', as far as I can see.
