    Strangest, hmm, got to be the time when I was being Tomi Nage'd (stomach throw) lost all forwards momentum and virtually did a tombstone onto the other guys forehead.

    I had concussion and a squished neck, and he got concussion too!

    Oh, Yoda reminded me I did manage to punch myself in the face whilst being armlocked by Fluffydoc!

    Trying a capoeira kick I taught myself

    Works well on my own but I did it at a seminar and hit a heavy bag with it.

    Fell over as it felt like my knee went out. Thought I was gonna be sick. Funny as 2 mins later I was right as rain.

    Everyone said it looked good until I feel over!!!!!

    not an MA injury but I did manage to break my toes while skateboarding....not strange you may think, but I wasn't actually skateboarding at the time it was someone elses laser guided missile of a skateboard that did it!

    Managed to split open my own eye throwing someone else, i was teaching at the time, was a reaping throw, threw him so hard he bounced off the mat, we clashed heads, i thought nothing of it till the blood starting dripping.

    6 hours in Wigan Infirmary casualty and 6 butterfly stitches!!

    I cracked my own ribs (badly) whilst enthusiastically demonstrating a hammer-fist strike to a potential student.

    Normally, I would have Braced for Impact but I was still talking at the crucial moment. Or perhaps I should have demoed on him because my sales patter wasn't enough to get him to class. :D

    Axe kicking my own nose bloody and dislocating a testicle while doing situps.

    Despite the bad grammar, that's still one helluva sentence, Adam! :D

    At a demo in a field, we were demoing typical defences against punches. Me and my partner would do the attack and defence then swap roles.

    A little nervous because of the growing crowd, and the fact we always commit totally to every attack, he forgot it was MY turn to attack.

    The end result was 2 right hooks, one leaving me near unconscious and the other breaking his nose.

    I still remember the stars flying round my head :D

    A couple of years ago I broke a bone in my finger on my own jaw whilst shadow-boxing...

    ... feel a bit better hearing that the mightly Yoda had a similar incident... of course his aim was better!

    It shows real dedication to shadow-boxing to beat yourself up.

    Just remembered a funny story;

    a year ago or so, i was trying to teach a friend how to do a 540 reverse roundhouse.

    He jumped up, span once and stuck his kicking leg out waay too early, he tried to over-stretch to reach the target which ended up with him basically doing the splits in mid air with a "snap", or it was more of a "tear".

    When he got back up, he looked down his dobok trousers to see he had ripped his boxer-shorts clean in half!
    I probably laughed for 2 hours solid after that.

    Well, I um... managed to... pull a butt muscle trying a 540 cold. :eek:

    EDIT: and another time me and my friend both did a spinning heel hook at the same time and our legs locked together leaving us hobbling like cripples on one foot! lol (not an injury, but still embarassing)

    Yesterday I was sparring and my opponent head-butted me in the ribs. It still hurts. I can't beleive I let him do that! lesson learned : cough medicine and sparring are a bad combination. Also, keep moving.

    Hmm...the ones I can admit to in mixed company are

    1) breaking my tailbone doing a lunge, and
    2) having my contact lense shoved up and behind my eyelid playing a martial arts "game" with another member. She accidentally shoved her thumb in my eye, or did I shove my eye in her thumb? Anyway, it took a couple of hours for the contact to work its way back down to my eyeball.

    The other things are too goofy and embarrasing to mention.

    I gave myself a black eye doing an elbow strike once. The fist goes over the shoulder, and I missed my shoulder and smacked myself in the eye.
