Training in a mixed martial arts gym within a professional environment, is a relatively safe sport, compared to a majority of popular sports. More injuries occur in sports like basketball, baseball, hockey and football than MMA. Through all the various sports I was previously involved in, I enquired more injuries in them compared to the zero amount of injuries I’ve had in MMA. It seemed like every football practice or game I had in high school there would be an injury timeout or somebody would get hurt, compared to the rare occasions somebody would legitimately get hurt or injured at the gym I use to train at. With the proper equipment and coaching, injuries happen in small very numbers so there is no need to be frightened, don’t be afraid to give it a try.
