    hi,
    anyone got any ideas on a suitable art for an arthritic?
    i've had both hips replaced so have very limited movement(90 degrees) in both legs.from web searches i was thinking of krav maga or wing chun.anyone with any help or suggestions much appreciated.

    Hi marpip,
    and welcome to MAP.

    Of the two arts/systems you mention, Wing Chun would, IMHO, be the less stressful (even stabilising), on your hips, Though you might find Tai Chi therapeutic.
