I will have to suspend my Judo practice for a few months. I will turn 80 in January, so my competition days are somewhat behind me (last was a World Master's about eight years ago). I think I will not compete anymore anyway.
However, I will continue to be active as a teacher and coach, and also continue to do light randori, uchi-komi, and some kata even after surgery.
I will not be able to respond to any comments for a while since I will be heavily sedated for at least a week, and somewhat slowed down with other priorities for at least a month.
