    my knees were actually harmed by TKD, not anything i've studied since. if anything, they've got slightly better since changing MA. snapping and jerking limbs into thin air as hard and fast as i could at 18 probably did more harm than anything since.

    BJJ has possibly hurt my neck, it creaks a little. it's gotten a lot thicker though. used to have a pretty skinny neck.
    No online won't really help much. BJJ is structurally sound, the karate is murder on the bod... I escaped a lot of shitty stuff but my feet and hands are pretty knarly from our Okinawan stuff.

    If you feel better and stronger than just concentrate on moving efficiently, the Tai Jutsu is great for that provided you have a good teacher. Or, feldenkriz the Israelly therapy is also wonderful. Doran Navon one of the Buj's best used to give seminars on feldenkriz stuff and tai jutsu and he pribably has saved my body from irreversable damage... Find a good feldenkris worker to help you with movement.

    Its a bit to get into how... if you find somoene let them explain the concept... it is sound to say the least and not idealistic like most therapise of this nature are.

    Judo since 20, now 33, no big training injuries except fucking my toes. Too bad I discovered snowboarding when I was no longer made of rubber, destroyed a shoulder and later snapped a wrist, so lately I had to dial the training back a bit.

    i wouldn't try to learn something like that off the internet, i'm more interested in seeing a video of what you're talking about, if possible. i'd like to see this kind of movement that apparently is better for your joints. if there aren't any good examples in video, that's fine.

    Most of the buj basics one sees are an example. Keep in mind that in reality the Sanchin (you can google and utobe the sanchin) are all about learning to move properly. I often joke with people that the Sanchin teach you to walk... to step by putting one foot foward in front of the other.

    The point being that the Sanchin particularly and to some extent the Kihon teach one foundational movement skills that use the whole body. I won't go into the relationship of these skills and combat except to say that Booj teachers who think one fights with the Sanchin and Kihon deserve the wrath of Bullshido.

    that does not suprise me. Hatsumi and Doran were also Judo guys and judo seems to be an art that has elements in it that allow one to **** up their joints with weight bearing twisting and falling hard, also has elements which teach strong movements that can protect the body when doing these things... Karate by contrast does not have any movements that protect the body this way... only movements that make the body conditioned and that destroy the body.

    I started TKD at 16. Took a big break from martial arts. I'm 24 now.

    11 and 36. I haven't practiced all the way through for 25 years though. It's been a start, stop thing, in various arts.

    No real major injuries related to Martial Arts. My right elbow is extremely sensitive (tendonitis, supposedly related to using a computer a lot...), so I tap easy on arm bars =P. My left knee is..sensitive. I just saw a physical therapist and he recommended some stuff. Going to follow that for a month and if it doens't get better go and see an ortho.

    Other than that, just general soreness and stiffness that comes with age =).

    My goal is to be in this for the long haul. My dad is 73 and can still bike ride 50+ miles, ski, and is in great shape. That's my goal. If it means a slower progression in MA and fitness, then so be it. I don't want to be 60 years old and crippled. (and God willing I won't be..)

    I started Judo at 18, but I've been boxing since birth. It's a quality of my hometown.

    25 now.

    Young man you are an interesting case haha. You have moved to "old man arts" at a relatively young age.

    Seriously though you have a few more years left where you can beat on people and get beat upon I hope you use them wisely. :toothy2:
