Hello people

My kid was doing flexibility exercises on Tuesday and did a no-no!
After spreading his legs for a while, while laying on his back with his butt against the wall, he jumped on his feet just like that.

Now he says his legs hurt in between his thighs!

Any thoughts on what is the best way to recover?
Thanks

Rest is about the best. Sounds like a possible groin injury or some type of muscle strain/tear. But of course, see a doctor, if at all possible, to make sure about the injury and its cure. In my youth I was of the mindset that all I need is a bandaid or duct tape; I was so wrong on my diagnosis and cure more times than I care to remember. I hope he'll be ok!!

Young kids tend to bounce back from injury a bit quicker than adults. Regardless, significant muscle strains or tears can take weeks.

Hello
Thank you all for your replies...

Indeed, he's feeling much better now, having skipped training Thursday and Friday (not really happy about it, but I guess that's a good thing ).

Today he's probably going to train, even though he'll do it under advisement to take it easy (not sure how that will turn out - not easy taking it easy it the heat of the moment).

Thank you for your help

Great to hear that your son's doing much better; you were absolutely correct in having him miss those two days of training for the rest. I'd get with the CI before class and ask that your sons activities be light until he's back to 100%; a great CI can adjust a students participation while providing that student with challenges still.

Give your son a high-five for me for displaying that Karate Spirit; that's the exclamation of his MA betterment!!

Thanks, sensei8.

Yes, I'll talk to our CI, he is usually the first to dial down the effort requirements whenever something is not perfect, so that will not be a problem.
I'll only have to worry about the kid pushing it even if the pain comes back.

It's nice to see him show so much enthusiasm about... anything.
Up until April, when he began in Karate, he really only cared about video games. No sports, no outside activities!
Now...

Missing a Karate session would be like being grounded!

I believe that you'll have to help dial him down because like you said, he'll push himself even if the pain comes back. That can destroy the fun aspect of the MA.

If your son can admit to himself, and understand that if he pushes himself before he's 100%, that that could end his MA career, in which he'll miss much more than just a few classes...that would be an unwarranted punishment.

Good to know that his CI is cognizant about his students' well-being!!

Yeah, he knows it, and is aware of the consequences...
But since when warmed up the pain is less intense (in this particular case, at least), I hope he gives it the necessary attention.

I'll keep an eye for any signs, of course.
