Thanks for all the advice and comments. It is amazing how different peoples experiences are and the nature of the human body.
I will excercise patiences (or at least attempt this), try to enjoy watching. I built our clubs website and need some gallery pictures, so I might be able to take these whilst recovering.
Charles, thanks for the advice on the Donovan Waite DVD's on Ukemi, I actually have his part one DVD on order from the states.
I am determined to continue with Aikido and appreciate the comments.
Justin, you are also right a few more Welsh people are required, especially from south Wales.
Thanks again and I hope to become a regular poster on the site.
