That's a bit of a stupid topic name, but thought it makes it pretty plain. I've had pretty bad shin splints for a while and am therefore unable to do much running, especially with weight. I want to keep my fitness up and was therefore looking into starting a martial art. What I wanted to ask you chaps/chapesses is whether this would be a good way to maintain fitness and help build my muscle back up, or whether it would be likely to make the injury worse? Cheers in advance.
