About injuries

Injuries should be few and far between, but they do happen occasionally – sometimes originating from outside the dojo. How can you keep training when injured?

An article in Aikido Journal presents a few pointers in this regard, “Nine tips to help you safely recover from injuries.”

For some reason, the author omits mention of the common practice of rolling up a sleeve on the injured side of the body. When you see that your partner has rolled up a sleeve, make sure you know what the injury is and how to practice safely with him/her, without reinjury.
