In General first injury! Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #2 New 05-11-2006 09:50 AM
Time to add to my blog - my first injury in class Monday night. Sprained shoulder, contusions - pain. What fun! I told my instructor I will still be back in class next monday. I still have legs and another shoulder! I just don't want to get out of practice or the habit of attending training. By the way, the injury was entirely My Fault! Didn't "Tuck" in enough when I was practicing my front roll. I had just been given the go ahead to try them standing up versus from the knees. I did several just fine - then wham - pain. That's what I get for not paying attention! Perhaps trying to rush things too much! Oh well, it could have been worse!

ouch! I did that a few months ago....I got my foot tangled in a hakama and it stopped my roll in a most inconvenient manner....I went down hard on my shoulder and knocked my breath out. I crawled to the side of the mat while I counted body parts! My advice is, if you continue to train, go easy on it - don't do anything that is going to tempt you to get excited and do more than you are ready for! And bokken cuts (slow) will keep it limber while it heals. I continued to train (with contusions and all) - and I'm pretty much back to normal...but even after a few months, I still have a few twinges now and again (but it could just be old age!) Take Care!
