:spitlaugh:Oh did I ever have trouble the first time I tried a spinning kick.



I kept trying and trying.

:bigwink:One day I finally did one right. And it was great. I still get really dizzy very quickly.
No apologies aside that I can blame directly on the ms. The disease did really mess up my balance.

In a way though it is kind of nice to know other people have problems as well.

Hi Jack, I have multiple sclerosis. Have had it for over 20 years. Most of the time it is considered a neuromuscular disease. It affects everyone differently. It can affect just about any part of the body or all of it.

Karate has been one of the best things I have done in terms of fighting the ms.

I spent a number of years totally in a wheelchair. And with limited upper arm mobility.

When I am in class with other people about my age I am a bit slower and a bit less coordinated. I wear shoes in class because the disease has affected some of the smaller muscles in my hands and feet. It is much easier for my to maintain my balance in shoes.

I still lack a bit of upper body strength and my pushups suck. But, I still try to do them the best that I can.

I have had ups and downs in my training. Everyone does. But, it would really be stupid to stop doing something that has helped me as much as karate has. Even if my spinning back kick lacks something, I can still whop you up the side of the head with a round house kick.

Does that help any?

I agree Karateka - Sai, you are to be commended! Martial Arts is quite challenging to learn as it is and here you are with MS going for it!!! You rock!! One of my best girlfriend has MS - she's had it for a couple of years now and sometimes has a hard time getting out of bed. Anyways, nice to meet you and good show!
