    Injuries that stop you from doing martial arts are the worst :hugs:
    Totally spot on there matey, I felt totally useless when I was sat up with a dodgy ankle, it's horrible - specially when you love your club and your sport!

    I usually come back with a achy shoulder sometimes when I break - fall wrong or just get manhandled by an aggressive jitsuka but nothing much apart from that.. The worst I've had is a busted lip (from a ground fight) it was really bad but it healed up in about a week

    5th kyu is Heian Yodan required, isnt it?

    I have a competition coming up (Isle of Man Karate Federation annual competition) and the sparring in that will be shobu nihonme (2 points).

    Oh, and I agree that injuries that stop you training are bad. Luckily I have only had minor achilles pulls and pulled muscles in my back that have kept me out for a week or two max.

    I attended the one last year too and i came first place in Freestyle fighting and third in kata competition. But it's going to be international this year which will be challenging.

    Does any one here do more than 1 martial art. I did Karate for 3 years when I was little and one man had a black belt in Judo, Karate and Taekwondo. He was really old though

    One of our instructors is 1st dan graded in TKD I think (he came into training in a dobok and blackbelt one session to save washing his gi) and will do pretty much anything he can get his hands on.

    When I get to Uni I will be doing the same - Jujitsu and a weapons art to compliment Karate

    I want to do Jeet Kun-do in Uni. They use a sword as a weapon in that martial art i think and their style is cool.

    Cool, I'll stick to TKD one step at a time. But our instructor works us hard, I cannot believe how toned I am. All my old trousers are baggy, I am so happy. I'd be pleased to spend time doing another martial art, in fact martials all day if this continues. Batter than the gym

    Judo and Ju Jitsu are very similar 'cos Judo was derived from jitsu and they are both VERY demanding
