In General Eastern States Camp report published... Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #48 New 01-12-2004 01:35 PM
My report on the AAA Eastern States Camp, held in late September, has been published in the latest issue of Aikido World (the newsletter for the AAA). I knew they were going to publish it, but I'm surprised that they published the whole thing without cutting my criticisms from the article.

I start physical therapy today for my shoulder. The last time I did PT (for my ankle), I had to stop going to aikido for nearly three months. I want to avoid that this time. The problem last time was twofold. First, I had to go to PT two to three times a week, which made it hard to get to the dojo (which is 40 minutes away). Second, I was in a lot of pain, and that made training, when I could get to the dojo, pretty difficult.

This time, I'm in less pain, and it's in my shoulder and not my ankle. It is comparatively easy to avoid stressing one's shoulder; an ankle is always engaged in some activity whether one is sitting or doing technique. If I can work out the schedule, I'm likely going to continue to go to practice, but not take ukemi. I also need to be careful with the weapons work as that has strained my shoulder in the past.

I'll post more when I know more. The last class went well, but my shoulder was very sore afterwards.
