Re: Broken Clavicle - Advice sort

Hi !

12 years ago I broke my collar bone and some more "parts" i my right shoulder, not Aikido related.
3 months after the crash I was on the mat again,
I have been forced to be vary careful, which is difficult, because you can't always signal to others how bad your condition is.

It has taken almost 10 years to get back to full function,
at it occasionally still hurts !!

But... I got past 3'rd kyu (Hakama) passed Shodan and have no idea of stopping !

I WANT my Aikido, injuries or not, that may the motivation needed.
Martial arts include dealing with injuries, I can't see it done any other way !

Best of luck !
