Howdy all, following on from my query about finding a dojo to train at, I started at a local one that is relatively close and has good trainers - or at least people I like! All was going well for the first couple of weeks until... I had a stroke! Nothing to do with training but needless to say it threw me on my ****! I have made a very good recovery (3 months later) and am incredibly fortunate. I have back most (nearly all) of my faculties and pretty mobile. I have slight numbness in my right arm and leg. My balance is slightly off but not too bad - as I said I've had a very good recovery. I have been signed off by the doctor to return to work, drive and return to gym work. My question is this - When can I return to karate training? I have no intention of doing anything combative, just the actual Kata. Anyone have any thoughts?
