Situations where people really are training for combat tend to have fairly high injury rates. As do elite athletes, regardless of their sport. So, as with everything else, there are tradeoffs.

No doubt, trained full contact for years (BJJ,JUDO,KENPO) ,now have partially disabled left wrist and left leg, limited range of shoulder motion and can't stand in one place for more than a minute due to back pain.Was tough as nails at the time though,not so much now...still training just the same,in the blood I guess.
