Versus Grappling Tournaments for 2015 / Are injuries likely to happen in BJJ?
BJJ is a contact sport, and accidents do sometimes happen, but it is a fairly safe sport if it is practiced responsibly and under the supervision of an experienced instructor. There is no kicking or punching, so you are less likely to get a black eye from BJJ than you would from, say boxing or Muay Thai. In addition, because most sparring starts from the knees, rather than from standing, the risk of knee and back injuries is low.
