Bruce Lee's attitude on an injury was if he got one he messed up so he would train that part harder, while I do not recomend that, it did seem to work for him and well, He Is/was Bruce Lee after all so maybe he knew something we did not

I agree completely. I almost always recommend working around an injury rather than complete rest.

as long as it is not applying to much pain or tweaking an area that needs complete rest - I will work through the injury. It is stressed that resting an injury is also recommened at times. I know that if the injury is bad enough not to train, I find myself taking a mental rest and analyzing the game and where I am weak at, when I do this, I often come back better after the injury allows me to train

Hope that made sense....

i think it depends on the injury. I mean, i had my anterior ligament blown during MT training and i had to stay away from training. It's been 7 months now, knee's better but i'm a bit scared to go back into training again even though i miss it very much. Anyone had the same problem? Should i just box?

No doubt there are severe injuries that will make it so you cannot and should not train at all, that is obvious. But even if your knee is blown, you can train your upper body with weights, and do your best to stay in the best shape you can so when you get back to full MMA training you aren't starting form square one. Keep a positive mental outlook and good luck!
