Is it just me, or do bumped heads and bruises not really count as 'injuries'?

Semantics aside, isn't an injury something that keeps you off the mat (or limits your practice to one side ukemi, one arm only etc), rather than something which makes it a little uncomfortable to practice for a week or two, like a butt or arm bruise?

Or do I just get beaten up so much I've started thinking its normal?


If one makes a distinction between the dojo and the battlefield, or being in your bedroom or in public, then when the time comes there will be no opportunity to make amends. (Hagakure)
