Re: Poll: Have you ever suffered a concussion during aikido training?

yes...although I didn't know it for years as I was only getting mild concussions. Now in retrospect it is obvious. After 11 years I have decided to stop training, not worth the risk. Had serious vertigo, fatigue and irritability for years. And it wasn't from hitting my head! I am quite small and it was from general impact on breakfalls...even though my ukemi was quite good. I must have had a predisposition to it as well. More and more evidence out that repeat concussions, even if mild, aren't good and are worse each time.
