    Actually, I have something to add here...

    Before I started TKD I had a bit of a hip issue - walking anything over about a mile caused my left hip to start 'clonking' loudly. Not really any pain, some, but loud enough for anyone walking next to me to hear. Every single step. It got tedious.

    It doesn't do that any more.

    Also, my ankles - they still click now, quite a lot, but there's no longer anywhere near as much aching.

    And so the knees. They weren't perfect before, and I do still get a little twinge now and then (and I went through a period of feeling the need for a compression brace, both sides, off and on), but I'd honestly say they've been trending toward better.

    Being sensible with keeping my alignment correct while building strength has, I feel, helped immensely.
