Before this all happened, I did lots of athletic activities. I had just started karate when my stroke happened. I signed up for a karate class after seeing a martial arts flick where everyone could fly. I liked the idea of a small woman flying around beating everyone up.

Now I go to the gym and do hundreds of boring rehab exercises. Less fun.

    I used to Box when I was younger. I use some of the movements to help me rehab, but uch slower then I used to and no where near the power. A ten year old could beat my ass.

    I wonder about eastern martial arts efficacy as rehab exercises. Especially Tai Chi might be good for balance and reintegration.
