    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.

    You don’t have to stop or quit or take time off (unless needed of course), just identify your personal pace and listen to your body. Remember the reasons you joined vs a regular gym and enjoy it. jmho Stiff upper lip and all that.
