    ouch dude. sorry to have called it as a torn muscle. when the pain and swelling go down, and you get full flexibility back, you will discover that you have lost strength, so you should start on some PT as soon as you can.

    ask the doctor for exercises, or a referral to a PT.

    I have a few friends who got that degree. Maybe I can consult with one of them. I don't know much about Japanese physical therapists, although I'm sure my insurance covers it. Hell, it was only 1,210 yen for the doctor's visit today.

    My big problem is going to be keeping myself from overdoing this. I usually do 12-15 hours a week in the gym on top of karate practice. After a year of that it's really hard to sit down. I KNEW all day today that I had missed my run and it bothered me. At least a three week vacation will keep me out of the gym, but I won't be sitting still much. I have 18 days to be a real human being before I go back to the ghettoes of Japan and continue my starvation. I can't waste it.

    Two things:
    1. Good PTs rock (my wife is one, so I may be biased).
    2. Time off will do you good. Three weeks is nothing in terms of training long-term but it is long enough to heal up many of the little injuries you don't even know you have.

    Two weeks in now, still can't flex my knee past 100 degrees. I'm beginning to worry about my ability to sit on the floor and teach kids for work in another week, and it's a given that I'm not going to be able to sit seiza to bow in to practice.

    Since I'm not running any more and have access to all this great American food (and my in-laws are complaining I'm too skinny) I guess I can get back to the gym and build up my broceps while I'm waiting for my leg to work again. I guess that's a plus.
