I recently hurt my lowet back last week right after a kumite session. While the injury wasnt because of the full contact sparring per se (lower back muscle spasm occured when i sat down to remove leg gear. When i stood up, my back and body was in shocjk and exruciating pain) i was wondering if i should continue to practice karate. Not sure if its safe to continue to do so, but i am still interested in training. I havent been lifting weights or hitting the gym, resulting in belly weight gain and loss of abs- very weak core and lower back. Im a bit concerned as to what i should do going further. Any and all advice is MUCH appreciated!
