Maybe they're not too worried about injuries as they have medics and ambulance on site during the filming (they even put the medics name at the end credit of the movie). Iko got quite severe injury, but not during the filming, it was during audition when he tested the stuntmen from hundreds of martial artists. One of them aggressively attacked him, Iko's kneecap was misplaced, made him limp for weeks.That man won a role, as machete gang No. 1 (remember that scene where Rama and Bowo have to hide inside a wall?). The guy is an architect in real life. Many of the stuntmen in The Raid are not professional stuntmen, they have various day-time jobs. They just happen to be accomplished martial artists who eagerly joined The Raid because the movie promotes Silat, Indonesia's ancient martial art.
