My name’s Steve, and I’d really like to begin training in karate again. That being said, I’m way overweight (5’11″, 290), and have hurt my knees running a 5K, throwing kicks and not pivoting correctly, etc. Is there anything I can do to prevent knee issues and/or address them after the fact? Thanks for any advice!
I’m more of a sports bra aficionado; knee braces are outside my realm. I have noticed that knee problems seem to be the status quo for older karate-ka. So, I sincerely hope there’s a way to prevent knee problems.
Well, fellow karate-ka, what do you know about knees and knee problems? Give your best advice in the comments below. $5 Starbucks Gift Card for one random commenter (using the excel spreadsheet method). We’ll give away the gift card during the first week of June.
