    Too little discrimination.

    And there's an amount of discrimination that's just right.
    Let's call it the Goldilocks principle.

    You assumed that it heals.

    I asked for so many opinions and all doctors said the same thing until one day...

    I contacted an American doctor that specializes in my case and asked him if I could resume my Judo, I explained that it meant a lot to me because I had a shot at competing on a national level and was lucky enough to get accepted into one of the best teams in the country where I trained daily for a year or so.

    He told me it would be very risky to resume involvement in a sport of such an unpredictable nature.

    I asked if I could squat and deadlift at the very least he said it may be okay, if I'm very careful and slow with my progression because lifting is of a much more controlled nature. But the risk is still there.

    So I did what any reasonable guy would do, I cherry-picked this opinion as the one to follow.

    The psychological trauma in sexual abuse can be debilitating on so many levels its naive of you to say it shouldn't stop someone training. Ideally NOTHING should stop someone training..but reality bites.
    Awwww...

    People's comfort levels...

    This is what makes us as a race so shitty:

    The amount of excuses we come up with for quitting. It's unreal.

    If this site has taught us anything, its that people also come up with a million excuses NOT to quit something that's not worth continuing. One shouldn't avoid quitting simply out of an obligation to never quit.

    Well I was talking about success in the art of BJJ itself not necessarily from a self-defence viewpoint.

    One of the doctors that told me to stay at home and brisk walk when I want to exercise (LOL) was a woman.

    I didn't listen to her.

    If I get dropped in Judo I might be done for completely.
    You mean you stopped practicing martial arts because you had a broken back? You fucking *****. I don't even care if you planned on returning after you healed. You don't have the balls for martial arts, you woman-******.

    That's not the reason to never quit, the desire to succeed is.

    Lol it won't heal, man.

    But I do plan on returning once I become REALLY strong, like back muscles so strong that I have a second spine on my spine.

    I love fighting it's the whole reason why I'm lifting in the first place, to maybe go back one day.

    Ain't no mountain high enough, etc.

    EDIT: I'm sorry for derail too, OP and everyone else, but I just wanted to put my back and my mate's leg as an example of obstacles.

    Yes comfort levels. like your not comfortable with the idea of being in a wheel chair for the rest of your life so you duck out of Judo.

    *****.
