I think this is a bleed over from parental concerns and marketing. Most parents don't want their kids to be hurt and as a result the Martial school will market "Safety" Somewhere during the marketing of Martial arts, it changed from "come get your bruises" to "come improve your self-esteem"for many of the people i train with the answer is close to zero, they want to float through a class with only the bare minimum of contact
If you look at most martial arts advertisement out there, it's less about fighting and physical self-defense and conditioning. These days it's about about discipline and behavior changes.
