comment Tips for faster recovery after training
The term is "recovery" and it's an extremely broad topic in sports exercise. Could you be more specific with the type of fatigue or mode of training?

Could you excerpt (or would you mind if I excerpted) some of the relevant sections? We want to avoid losing info due to link rot.

@Wudang My impression, and I could be wrong, was that porous/multi-style CMA was more common historically compared to modern tai chi.

comment Are martial arts helpful in dealing with pain from a sedentary lifestyle?
In contrast, while I'm not terribly excited about the hernia question, at least that was a clear diagnosis, and you were sharing your personal experience with what the OP was asking about. In this question you're trying to diagnosis the OP's knee issues and you're already tossing out guesses as to the cause of the OP's shoulder trouble. You're saying it's probably bursitis when the sum total of your knowledge is 1. it's the shoulder and 2. some doctor said it was probably related to computer time.

comment How likely is serious injury in martial arts practice?
Concussions are a factor in judo, wrestling, boxing, and kickboxing, and there's a significant contingent in each of those sports that consider the activity to be spiritual training. That's part and parcel of hard-sparring arts.

comment Are martial arts helpful in dealing with pain from a sedentary lifestyle?
OP wrote "I am a research scholar and I have to dedicate a lot of time everyday in front of the computer. This leads to pain in my knees and shoulder. I consulted with doctors and they suggested me some elementary physical exercises.". From that you wrote "The pain in your shoulder is most likely caused by referred nerve pain or a localised tendonitis/bursitis (most likely your bicep tendon or a rotator cuff inflamation)." To me, that's an Internet Diagnosis that we should avoid.

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.

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.
