advice for the hearing impaired
As the result of a shooting accident, I've lost the majority of my hearing in both ears. Getting fitted for hearing aids next week, they are likely to be behind-the-ear hearing aids rather than in-the-canal hearing aids.
I don't know whether I'll be able to wear them in class, I rather doubt it. So far, Sensei and my dojo mates have been making do pretty well. I've been training with Sensei for many years, I can pretty much get her groove even when I can't make out the words, so that helps. But I was wondering if any other hearing-impared aikidoka might have some good advice for me.
