Re: Poll: If doctors told you that continuing aikido would be very bad for your health, would you continue training?

Been there, told that, still training and doing well.

If the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. If the only tool you have is a scapel and medication, and you've never done Aikido, and most of the courses you have studied have been in sickness/pathology not health/wellness, well then I always try to consider the source of the information/opinion I get.

IMHO, doctors can offer opinions and advice based on what they know and think, but the final decisions are always our own. The quality of my life matters and Aikido adds to its quality.

We do not rise to the level of our expectations, but fall to the level of our training. Train well. KWATZ!
