Training with Breast Implants

by Brandy
(UK)

Can a woman become an Aikido-ka with breast implants?

Would the break falls cause problems?

Before people start judging, many women have one or more breast implants after a Mastectomy.

I thinks that's a question for each individual's surgeon.

In my opinion, any type of training where skills and ability are developed gradually should be ok.

Any worry from hard training, can be resolved by choosing a softer style of Aikido. Many clubs train light, where the emphasis is on partner work rather than the martial aspects of the art.

Also, a majority of the breakfalls can be performed by blending and rolling rather than crashing.

I hope this helps.
