Re: When is long enough to long?

I'm not yet 51 and as a consequence of severe knee trauma a few yrs back now have very severe osteoarthritis in the knee. It may be highly imprudent for me to return to training unless I simply stop taking rolls/falls (except a few now and then by accident won't kill me--I'm talking ongoing wear and tear) but unlike many my age/degree of worn out, I've been training less than 10 yrs. I cannot stop thinking that I'm "cheating" myself or interfering with my learning if I stop fully receiving the technique.
Hard stuff to put my head around.
