Common Injuries whilst taking part in Karate
Because Karate is a contact combat sport, there is a fairly high risk of sustaining an injury when practicing the sport. The most common injuries sustained while practicing Karate include the following:
Because Karate is a physical full contact sport, avoiding getting hurt while practicing it might not be possible. However, there are some things you can do to lower the risk of getting injured. Make sure to take the time to warm up properly and correctly, including stretching, before training sessions and matches. It is also strongly recommended, essential even, that you practice your offensive and defensive moves often and under the guidance of a licensed coach to make sure that they are done properly as incorrectly carried out movements may result in injuries. If you are training with a coach, which you should, listen to their advice. Additionally, wearing a mouth guard and / or other protective gear if necessary definitely reduces the risks of certain injuries.
