Have only had a few such experiences around a kendo dojo. Instead, it's been sweat, sprains, bruises(to ego and body), embarrassment, mochi toes from peeled-off nails, expense, and doubts about continuing. The 10,000 hour rule isn't too far off. Accidents are accidents. Those rare transcendent moments aren't the same. Photography isn't really any different.
