I hope this belongs in the "training section",
So I started up Ishinru karate a few months ago and enjoyed my first bout of sparring yesterday.
Today I have a left arm thats entirely black and blue. And a broken thumb on my right hand. Don't get me wrong, the class is really cool but I'm new and don't have pads, plus I blocked a kick with my right hand open...Now my thumb resembles a hotdog put in the microwave to long.
So my question is has anyone here broken a thumb (where the thumb meets the hand) and how long did it take before you could start lifting with your hand.
P.S. yes I realize that "where the thumb meets the hand" sounds like some Budhist concept of illusion or something.
