Anyone train in the martial arts?

Posted by Kristin on 1/08/99 at 00:00 (003147)

I was wondering if anyone trains in the martial arts. I'm on my third month off (hurts too much to be barefoot) and had a cortisone shot 4 1/2 weeks ago. Foot for the most part feels pretty good. Wondering if anyone has come up with a way to cushion the heel without wearing shoes. I was thinking of a soft Dr. Scholl's arch support wrapped with ace bandage. Any suggestions? Thanks a bunch

HI, I had to stop practicing kung fu because of PF--it doesn't mix
well with being bare foot. Taping my foot helped a little, but I decided to stop practicing until I totally heal.
Let me know if something works for you.
