    I was curious of self defense with my back fused up.
    I have rods and screws from the lower rib area to my tailbone that fuse my back and is now totally rigid and non bendable in that area.
    Have you ever taught self defense to people with limited movement? I have a brown belt in Kung Fu San Soo from many years ago, but most of those moves deal with being able to bend my back. Thought I’d ask … Thanks, Vic
