    I fell skating down a hill and I have a big scrape on my left arm. Should I just stop training for a while and let it heal? Or should I just dress it and train lightly? How should I dress this wound? I don't wanna dress it wrong and end up getting herpes.

    Thanks.

    Pics of this scrape? And your instructor will probably understand if you skip this Friday. I can't imagine a scraped arm rubbing on a gi. That shit must be torture

    I have a nice big scrape on my right elbow from getting hit by that car. I was training and noticed that the gi had rubbed the scrape raw and there was blood all on the inside of my sleeve :(. Needless to say I have my long sleeve rash guard and a tensor bandage to wrap it in now.

    just rest. Unless you're prepping for a fight, a week off will not kill you.

    I hear you man. I fractured my thumb, have a cast, and I'm still training 7-9 AM, 3-5 pm, e 7-9 PM. So do as I say, not as I do.

    However, in my case, I don't have more vulerable tissue exposed to all sorts of mat fungus and bacteria. REST.
     
  17. i had a really bad sunburn and went to class the next day. it hurt to shrimp, and well, pretty much do anything, but i just cant get enough so i dealt with it.
