You're right--we often have to look at what happened before the "accident" to understand the situation. A dojo culture that is proud of injury sounds dangerous to me.
I knew for sure I was changing dojos when the chief instructor where I'd been training asked about the result of my knee injury research and when I said half the dojos had NO serious knee injuries in the past 5 years he looked shocked, then said "then they must not be really doing aikido."
