    Probably not the end. Probably more of a transitioning.from what you used to do into something different. Something always fills in the gaps

    Am very sorry to hear Xue... but I will say don't rule out martial arts completely, I truly believe MA are for life, albeit taking different directions and forms. Evolving into the form that you currently need, to match where you are. My practice is certainly evolving from the 'harder, faster, stronger' school to a more relaxed, natural, connected and grounded approach.

    Of course I don't know the severity of it, it sound bad, but there's always a different way to practice.

    Take care buddy. Stick around these parts though :)

    Not there yet apparently and the thought is I will ultimately just develop more scar tissue

    Hey Rich, thanks

    I have not given up yet, but it is getting a bit discouraging.

    My knee has gotten worse and worse and is quite bad at the moment... so can relate to that frustration and discouragement... but gonna start from the ground up with a rehab program, really take my time to progress slowly and strengthen everything.

    Have a cane hand, brother,
    They make nice ones, with swords, too (probably not legal to carry in public though)

    I talked with a nurse once, her knee was basically shot and at one time when they had to go in and repair a tear they drilled holes in the ball of the bone so the scar tissue would sort of replace the cartilage that had worn off a long time ago.
    And I wondered why nobody had offered the chance to my husband.

    Alas. Hang in there.
    Scars are seldom a blessing.

    To look scary while deploying.....because after that...it breaks if actually used for combat....other possible use...to make the other guy feel sorry for you and simply leave you alone123
