I'm looking at starting Judo in the next month or so - I've decided to pull the pin on my TKD training due to an 18 month battle with cam impingement in my hip. I've had surgery, but realistically its not going to get back to the stage I will be able to compete in competition sparring (its WTF so ready the pitchforks and flaming torches).

So my question to you guys would be are hip joint injuries common in Judo, as I have some problems with deep hip flexion?

Also, its pleasing to hear I might get a complete set of broken fingers, I'm currently sitting at 6/10 due to 20 years of playing rugby union.
