WHat would happen if I were to be injured before I day? I do some pretty contact heavy martial arts and I was wondering if I should risk continuing. And by injured, I dont mean like a broken bone or something, but rather something less serious but still slightly bothersome. I have been experiencing some slight shoulder pain for the past month or so, and I am actually getting quite nervous, worried, anxious, you name it. I have scheduled an appointment with a specialist to take a look at it, but I would be devastated if I couldn't go to the academy because of some stupid tear or something.
