    We know it is just one perspective; but, some people might think spraining your ankle or getting knocked out in competition is the norm. We will have to defend the MA communtity again that we are not about beating people up.

    Positives? Yes. It showed that hard work pays off physically and bring more confidence at work and overcoming your fears. I.e. stepping in the ring at a tournament

    I found the glorifying of the injuries a little disturbing, but I found his improved confidence, and physical fitness to be inspiring.

    This srticle is a double edged sword for the martial arts community.
