The power of aikido is amazing and thankfully injuries have been a rare occurance in our dojo (knock on wood).
Long-term knee injuries, however, is something that I've been following on the boards here and on the web.

Trying to be more gentle on the knee while on the mat affects my techniques, my center. The mat we practice on really grips the foot when pivoting so there's alot more effort than on other surfaces. Adjusting myself to what might happen in the long-term, I feel, is a bad habit in the making, especially with something as important as tenkan.
But on the other hand, I've been having aches and pains in my knees.
It's never during or right after class but later in the night and lingers into the following days. I've only been in Aikido a short time but to already be putting stress on my knees?

I really need to watch that torque in my tenkan...or perhaps just shutup and practice. lol
