I'm currently having a different problem now, with the right foot: plantar faciaitis. Went to the doc last week and it has not yet developed into a bone (heel) spur, but the pain is still there. The doc tried to talk me out of aikido... or basically any physical activity done without orthodics! (ie barefoot).

Does anyone have any suggestions of THIS foot ailment?


Uh....Foot transplant?

After ramping up and doing Suri-waza for my previous test and starting to work on Hanmi Hantachi for my next test; I've noticed my toes tend to hurt for several days after practice. It even seems to be getting worse. After 10 minutes of Hanmi Hantachi today my toes have been aching for the past 4 hours! The pain rides right down the last joint of each toe.

I'm curious to know if anyone else has experienced this? And what your possible suggestions are? Right now I'm just going to refuse to do it (in a nice and polite manner of course).

I've already talked with Sensei and plan on reiterating it to him next class.
ummm.....sitting in formal position gets to my toes, I can always feel it after class.

To speak ill of anything is against the nature of Aikido

[quote= I have a nice big bump on top, right behind the big toe joint. [/QUOTE]

I have something similar that happened when I hyper-flexed my foot when I was taking a funky fall. I planted my foot and didn't go anywhere but down when things buckled.

I did some research and spoke to a trainer. We believe I have turf toe.

I know I have to keep from using it (basically doing back falls and rolls, putting weight on it while bending the toes), but that is better said than done.

Question: I am still do light training, but need to tape it. I could not find a post to help with that. Would anyone have any suggestions on taping strategies? Right now I am taping it so it doesn't bend upwards. Not much support for the side...need ideas for that.

Thanks Gobs!
