comment An Ontology of Combat
@Trevoke Since I don't think there are ontologies in the sense that the OP is looking for, I decided that the closest relative would be a fine answer. But no, it definitely doesn't answer the question as stated.

comment What type of brace should I use for the jumpers knee injury (patellar tendinopathy)?
Did your doctor recommend a knee brace? This comes very close to medical recommendation.

Can you clarify the baseball bat analogy? I think any reasonable person would prefer being hit with a baseball bat end-on, rather than hit with a swing.

comment Is kickboxing or boxing particularly dangerous?
I would also question your use of the term "short term" to describe the evidence of brain injury in amateur boxing. From the article you link: "The boxers who participated in the study competed on the top-level of Swedish boxing and all had fought at least 47 bouts." These are world class amateur boxers; the amateur refers to whether they take pro bouts, not their level of involvement in the sport, which is quite extensive and certainly not short term.

I edited your Livestrong link to point directly to the BBC reportage, though it still lacks a link to the study. (If you think I erred, please feel free to roll it back or re-edit.) I think the distinction between pro and amateur is worth noting here. My answer on concussions (linked above) addresses this.
