Re: getting injured while training

It is the first time that my arm becomes bruised after aikido training. Do you also get sometimes injured after trainings?

What other posters haven't mentioned is that bruises are the chief stuff of conditioning. With regular conditioning, bruising will subside...but this took years in my case. Also, your tolerance for pain will increase.
