comment Best martial art for someone with bad elbow?
Gripping is fine, getting it banged or falling on it is fine. It is essentially the same type of movement as pushing yourself up from a push up which is not ok, or a backhand movement in tennis. Also I cannot have 100% full extension and I could not do a fast punch with that arm, I could only use it to grip or block. I'm not sure if I could withstand twisting and turning because I don't really do that sort of thing day to day

Thank you for the response. I should really point out what does aggrevate my elbow which might help others to recommend something.

Thanks. I was hoping for one which is not heavily based on strikes and uses body positions and other people's weight.

Is there anything else other than Taekwondo?

I am 34 and not very flexible at all. I'm also unsure whether I would enjoy being kicked in the head
