I would only add that I have met any number of old dogs in Aikido with all kinds of physical issues they received from years of ukemi and doing Aikido with their shoulders. .....................
This old dog has shoulders that make noise on cold days and let me know when it will rain, all from more than one separation to both (folks just couldn't load me up properly for a throw) and knees that work pretty well as long as I don't try sitting on them..... Now that you have me thinking about shoulders under arms under hands I am starting to think I feel more hurt.......thanks a lot........
