Re: Back injury and starting aikido?

Check with a Doc first (but they will be risk adverse - no gain to them if you practice).

Find a school that does NOT do breakfalls, only rolls.

A Ki Society dojo would be a good option, check the web for their locations.

If your back can't handle it, try Tai Chi - the flexability may help your back.
