Re: Knees and Shoulders - avoiding damage
Just my $0.02, but you can get hurt in Aikido. You can also get hurt sitting at home in your kitchen. Even if you hide under the bed, it might fall on you. As I see it, no matter what the activity, the chance of injury increases sharply the more you are worried about being injured. Train diligently, and focus sharply. The rest is up to chance. Some days you get the bear, and other days, well...
