Re: Training when you can't train (injured newbie)?

Thank you, Karolina. I'm very encouraged. My shoulder wasn't even sore the next day. So far, so good.

The next milestone is to be able to roll and fall. I'm being very careful and conservative, because if all goes well (no setbacks from rushing or arrogance), I should be able to participate in a seminar at our dojo with Robert Nadeau Shihan near the end of July. (Where's a crossing-your-fingers emoticon when you need one?)

That's a great idea. And yes, thank you, I'm very interested in any additional training ideas.

Your suggestion gave me another thing to try, too, as I was walking to the barn after first reading your post: Walking with my eyes closed. I tried 6 steps, then look (reality check, correct trajectory, notice obstacles), another 6 steps, and so on. So there's another idea that could be slipped into normal daily life (my normal day includes walking to/from the barn at least twice).

Probably any balance ball exercises would be interesting without visual input, too.

Thank you again.

I am also been down this week for an injury and have been working on grounding myself after tenkans and tentais good luck.

Re: Training when you can't train (injured newbie)?

I was out and in bed for almost a week after wrecking my back. The muscle group became stronger in the long run however. The thing is I would of never of injured myself if I had listened to my body. There was a little bit of aching during the middle of class, but I kept trying to do ground work through it. I felt fine until I got off the mat. Once the adrenaline died in my body I couldn't stand up. The pain was immense!
So basically what I'm say is to take time and listen to your body. Take time to stretch if you feel tight anywhere. Your partner will gracefully wait for you, and your instructor should understand.
