Re: Knee health and Aikido

I agree that locking up and making noise can be symptoms of torn meniscus and worth evaluating before further damage occurs.
Good aikido is not inherently dangerous. However.....Many "warmups" are not good body mechanics. Sometimes beginners will torque their knees during moving around the mat and the instructor won't see it.
