Don't fool yourself - all the members in my dojo that are forced to wear knee braces are Japanese. One claims it was the Judo that did him in, another claims it was the Karate but all four did Aikido for a long time and Shihan is down right anal when it comes to watching out for improper ukemi - I know that has to do with the knees.
