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

One of my dojomates had her wrists x-rayed once, and the docs were aghast-- the bones looked pulled apart. "What's wrong with your wrists!!" they said. "Oh, I just do aikido..."

Couldn't blame a sensible doc for advising one to stay away since this isn't exactly the safest of recreational activities. ("And tell me again what you don't understand about the "R" in "RICE"-- Rest, Ice, Circulation and Elevation?")

On the other hand, my acupuncturist said my pulses became nice and strong when I started practicing!
