Aikido Intro #863 - Practicing with Injuries
It’s your responsibility to keep yourself safe. If you’re practicing with an injury mark your uniform (we use red tape) to indicate sensitive spots, and inform your Sensei. I’ve never had the misfortune of knowing anyone who wasn’t mindful of their partner’s injuries, or a Sensei who wasn’t thoughtful and concerned, offering ways to modify a technique so both nage and uke can still get an effective practice.
However…. From personal experience, I’ve learned that too much red and you end up looking like a target… or maybe it was the red gi my Chiropractor gave me.... 😂
