How to Prevent Martial Arts Injuries?

Conditioning is a key component of injury prevention. The following prevention strategies will also help:

  • Always warm-up properly prior to training and especially competition.
  • Allow an adequate cool-down period and perform after training/competition stretching.
  • Cardiovascular training is important to prevent the muscles from tiring during a game and allowing the breakdown of proper form.
  • Strengthening the muscles that support the knee and ankle joints will help prevent some of the common sprains.
  • Increasing flexibility in the muscles and joints will reduce the stress on these areas during training.
  • Practicing balance, agility and proprioception drills to improve knee and ankle stability.
  • Learning from a qualified master and practicing to improve technique and ensure proper application of all strikes and blocks.
  • The use of appropriate padding and protective gear will also help reduce trauma to the body during practice and competition.
  • Practicing in controlled environments will also reduce the chances of accidental injuries.
