MMA Injuries: Time to man up!

Train long enough in the Martial Arts, and you will encounter an injury of one kind or another. Learning how to train wisely during an injury is a key component in getting ahead while others would be crying in a corner, licking their wounds.

Well, this week we bring you our friend and regular here at Damage Control MMA, Ben “The Badger” Jones. It’s no surprise that when he injured his bicep while preparing for a bout in Bellator, he was still at it, working out and training, even with his injury.

The key is to be smart about how you train. To find ways that you can continue to be active while both allowing your injury to heal, but also improving your skills in other, possibly neglected parts of your game. Here Ben shares some of his insights into how to accomplish this… Badger style!

  2. Great motivation !! Thank you.

  3. What we here at DamageControlMMA.com want to know is, what were some of your worst injuries and what did you do to train around it?

  4. After 15 + years of T.K.D. I had a Total Hip Replacement, 3 years ago this month. 90 days after, Brian Takeo Yamasaki helped me with the needed boxing techniques that I lacked. 1&1/2 years ago I had shoulder surgery and then returned to striking classes. Two months ago I had shoulder surgery on the other shoulder and in 30 days I will hopfuly be ready to return to striking classes and work on the kicking techniques and Bjj.
