This Friday I'm getting back on the tatami again after 2 years and 7 months off, following a car accident which messed up my lower back.
Sensei and his most senior student talked with me about the practicalities, and I've been assured that I can roll out of all techniques (I cannot take high falls without risking further damage)
Of course I will be taking things slow and steady for a while, re-gaining my confidence, and getting back into training in an Aikido dojo again.
I'm afraid I will not be attending seminars as the risk of being sent flying by a tori who doesn't know my limitations is too high
Just before I had to stop, I was exploring all the subtleties of Aiki, so I'm really not bothered about going hell-for-leather again as that is not where my interests lie - been there got the T shirt etc
Please wish me all the best for Friday, and a big HELLO to everyone who remembers me from Aikido-L and Aikiweb
