    Hiya guys. Ive recently just started martial arts and joined a grappling class (no gi).

    I absolutely love it but unfortunately my knees are not as keen.

    My question is this... Do your knees get used to rolling after a while? Or has no one else experienced this and im just being a wuss?

    Anyways ive ordered some wrestling knee pads just incase. But was curious to see if this problem was just with me or not?

    So what's wrong with your knees?

    Mine still bruise but I don't notice anymore. If you're talking actual joint or ligament issues, that's something you want to get sorted before you actually roll with much force.

    Its just feels like a bruise on the inside of the knees and abit of it i think is friction burn aswell.

    Joints dont hurt tho so thats gud. Like i said... I have never done anything like it before so might just need to get used to it. But was curious to find out if anyone else had experienced sumat similar.

    Yep. Fact of life for grapplers. Especially when you do a lot of Catch. Some days I go home feeling like I've been beaten with tiny hammers all class.
