Here’s a link to a 2007 BBC article on a (then) new study on brain injuries from kick-boxing. The study found statistically significant hormone deficiencies in kick-boxers, and concluded that this resulted from damage to the pituitary gland.


"Try to see yourself as you truly are and try to adopt what is meritorious in the work of others. As a karateka you will of course often watch others practice. When you do and you see strong points in the performance of others, try to incorporate them into your own technique. At the same time, if the trainee you are watching seems to be doing less than his best ask yourself whether you too may not be failing to practice with diligence. Each of us has good qualities and bad; the wise man seeks to emulate the good he perceives in others and avoid the bad."
Funakoshi Gichin
