Is there a combat sport I can participate in where I am unlikely to get concussions? I'm very scared of getting brain damage.

    No. Grappling has lots of falling down on mats. Over time it will affect your brain. Also BJJ is useless on its own, you need something to compliment it.

                Why’re you bringing up wrestling in a discussion about BJJ? Also wrestlers risk neck injuries which I’d say is on par with brain damage.

                How exactly do you think bjj gets to the ground???

                And no, it really doesn't, I would rather have a sore neck than fucking brain damage lmao

          I never said that wasn't an eventuality of grappling, the argument was about brain damage, dummy

    You should just do combat sports for a few years. That is my plan. No more than 5 years of active sparring and competition. I've been slowly training myself without sparring until my next birthday when I will start sparring and competing.

    Look man, you can probably do judo or bjj and sustain minimal concussions if any, but at the end of the day you are taking a risk doing a combat sport. It is literally fucking fighting. If you can't handle this, you aren't a born fighter. That doesnt mean you cant become proficient at grappling for instance, but it will take you much longer if youre constantly worrying.

      The real test to see if you're a born fighter is whether as a kid you'd fight back or run away.

    I got a few concussions playing football growing up. It isn't really a big deal.

    A severe concussion or repetitive concussions is one thing but a minor concussion every now and then is not going to fuck your brain

    If you wanna get good you will get hurt. Just get decent if you train for health and longevity. Minimize hard sparring, do a lot of shadowboxing or pad/heavy bag work for cardio and technique. You dont need much skill for irl self defense as long as you're also athletic, fairly strong and not a 60kg manlet.

    Kek I have been carried to hospital so many times from head injuries. It's not that bad but I unironically forgot my entire childhood and have trouble with creating memories. Fighting and extreme sports+beaten as a child.

    Im the short washed up actual MMA fighter from the other thread.

    The short of it is, stop being scared of head knocks. Once you get used to it you just learn to block duck and roll, pussies flake out with the concussion shit in whi case fighting is just not for you

    Fear has no place in a crack. Stop being a bitch. Man up. Stop talking, like stop saying words justifying your fear. Man up or fuck off.

    If your reply is anything but acceptance of what Im saying, dont bother.

    you dont need to practice punches/kicks. or even jiu jitsu. learn wresting and judo. a fall to concrete is much more lethal than any washed up mma low-iq brain rocked shithead can do to you anyways
