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

Depend on.....
My experience is that you should get second opinion and then decide what to do. I have diabetes for 11 years now and my first doctor told me not to train (running marathon). I experienced that my health has always been better when training. I have been sent to a specialist for diagnostics and a new doctor has been specialized in sport and told me (in my case) that what makes me feel good and more healthy I can train(knowing your limits). I joined Aikido 5 years ago and my illness has newer stop me to do what I want to do. I live better with Aikido .
