comment How likely is serious injury in martial arts practice?
Editing the post would be fine. The idea of Stack Exchange is to make quality answers that help all readers, not just the original poster, so edits are encouraged.

comment How likely is serious injury in martial arts practice?
I'm just quibbling over the word "worthy". Plenty of quality schools don't have room for someone who wants to pick and choose which parts of practice they'll do. Still a good answer, still upvoted, but if someone's not a good fit for a martial arts school because they don't want to train martial arts, then I think calling the school unworthy is a little odd.

comment How likely is serious injury in martial arts practice?
I agree with most everything except the idea that someone can choose to sit out of fundamental activities like sparring. It's reasonable for some gyms to say, "train like we train or you can't train with us," and it's reasonable for that to involve sparring.

comment What material should be covered in a rape-defense course?
Thanks for your answer! I think it's important to remember, however, that the vast majority of rapes do not stem from women out jogging or returning home late at night and being ambushed. Most rapes are committed by someone the victim knows‌​. (Thanks go to @DavidHClements for the link.)

I agree with everything in this answer except the condescending attitude. :) It's hard to be nice, but worth the effort.

comment How should a novice train if unable to join a dojo yet?
@Nowhereman Maybe you could you add your own answer to describe what you mean? I'm not sure how improving one's clean and jerk decreases or interferes with mobility work.
