I am interested in starting a martial arts program. I found the style I'd like and a location that fits. I've talked to the folks there folks and am comfortable with them.

My question is: what kind of exercise program should I start before getting into this. The art is Aikido and I have Crohns Disease. I had 1/3 of my intestines removed 2 years ago. All things concidered, I'm doing pretty well. I have to eat smaller meals many times a day. I MUST be close to a bathroom (nuff said). I sometimes suffer from an energy drain. But if I plan on doing something I can eat to get ready.

What should I do to make sure I'm in shape to start training? I've hurt myself enough over the years jumping into something with out proper prep.

Sorry it's been so long for a response. I for one am not qualified to answer your question. My suggestion would be to talk to your doctor about this. As you said, you have jumped into things too soon before. All injuries and/or diseases are different. I have learned to cope with mine and live with my limitations. You need professional advice and I hope you get it before starting any martial arts training. Good luck.
