Check with a doctor first, and speak with the sensei
Kat is giving good advice here although it's advice that should not have to be given on this forum. Any injuries such as these should have been brought up in some manner during the registration process. In other words, someone (the teacher or whoever signed you up) should have had you fill out a questionaire (Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire - PAR-Q) in regards to your health history. It is not a case of you speaking to the teacher, they should have processes in place so that they spoke to you on this topic. These injuries would have come up.
