Re: New To Aikido - From Dallas, Texas

Welcome Howard,
knee problems are not the best condition for starting aikido, but is neither for the orther MAs, I guess. Just be careful and have fun. I really want to encourage you to stick to classes, even if some doctors even might advise the opposite. You just have to be careful and especially with shikko and ukemi. Just do wahat you are ready for. Do not enforce too much and you will have a wonderful live in aikido.

Cheers Dirk
