Had flights booked, had spent several months building my mileage up and was in really good shape, ready to go. Then, on the mat two nights before I was supposed to fly out, and I really tweaked my knee. Had to cancel our run that we had waited months for! My brother was like "you idiot, why were you wrestling sweaty men just before our big run?"

Sounds like the terbanifine tablets are prescription. That would be the way to go. I've never had the stuff in my hair though, just a few spots here and there, hands, back of neck usually. My first experience with this rot was high school wrestling, that was a long time ago for me.
After 5 years of training I've only broken my thumb! I train hard and get minor injuries all the time, but the thumb sidelined me for 2 months. Other than that, it's been relatively injury free.

I broke my toe once, and separated my ribs once. Those, and the tweaked knee (MRI showed nothing, so it really was ok). I've gotten off pretty lightly.

My wife though... 12 years in judo... her list of broken bones is pretty long and she blew out both ACL's and had to get them replaced, about 2 years apart. Ouch.

I think jiu jitsu is a bit more gentle on the body.

Triangle Escapes

Is there anything worse than feeling yourself locked in a triangle choke that is getting tighter and tighter?

Another BJJ'r here. Started BJJ in 2004, trained gi- only for about 2 years and got my blue belt, then got into MMA in 2006, pretty much gave up the gi for no-gi grappling fought a little off and on until 2008, trained about another year hit or miss after and my coach moved to Virginia and now coaches the yamasaki mma division in virginia, so went back to BJJ only with original instructor who retired in the spring of 2011. Nothing else since, got a call last night another grappling gym opening up and the coach is one of my old training partners so I expect to be back in action by July. Really miss the rolling and am excited to get back at it.

I trained in traditional Jiujutsu for 12 years, before BJJ caught on in North America. Can I still come to the party?
