Back in 2008 I posted a segment on joints and muscles, pertaining to injury's. Since I had some joint and muscle setbacks in my early years of training, I thought I should post this. This goes along with my belief on stressing mechanics right away in the teaching. When trusting or kicking in the beginning of a students training, proper attention should be paid to mechanics. At this stage of training, muscle or tendon injury can be common. To over extend the elbow or knee is another common injury here. Going over how not to thrust or kick will help. Teach proper body mechanics right away to lessen these joint and muscle injury's. ------Happy Trails -------- Art Rabesa

A quick follow up on injuries. It is essential to have ice ready in your dojo. Those shin and forearm bruises can really slow down your training. Conditioning is really important, but you can still receive some tough strikes that can cause lots of discomfort.I had a small fridge in my dojo just to keep ice cups available. Take small paper cups and fill some with water. Put them in the freezer of the fridge. They really come in handy for bruising. Tear off the right amount on the top of the cup. Use small circular movements on the bruised area. This is needed right away. This will stop further damage and allow the area to heal faster. My daughter is an athletic trainer, and she will put ice on anything. When in doubt - ice it-because ice will never harm you. PLUS ice is nice to have around, just in case your going to have a party. -----Happy Trails ----- Art

This will take a little getting use to. That shin on shin. That instep into the elbow. That forearm from a shin thrust. We've all had these happen during training. The VERY first thing you should do is this. Use your finger tips and rub the bruised area in a circular fashion. Get in there. It might bring tears to your eyes, but it will also get blood and O2 to the injury. You must follow this up with ice, of course. I've had success with this method, but it is not easy. Hurts like hell. When I trained on Okinawa, I did this constantly. It got me ready for the next workout. It got me through many years of competition. You won't like it, but it works. Don't cuss me though, when doing it. ---Happy Trails ----Art
