Abstract/Description

People are encouraged to be more active for the sake of their health, but in becoming more active people may be exposed to more sports-related injuries. There are many risk factors that may increase the likelihood of a sports-related injury. Aggression, in particular, may be a contributing factor to a higher likelihood of injury. The goal of this study is to look at the relationship between aggressive personalities and injury occurrence in a group of medieval combat game participants.
