    I injured my leg last month (tore my ACL) from sparring and cannot spar until like around nov-feb. What martial arts can I still do with a bad leg? I was told by my doctor that I can still practice as long as I am not sparring in the meantime. So would tai chi be a good idea, i see a lot of old people doing that so i figure that must not be very strenuous. I also heard that Eskrima/Kali may be a good option since it involves mainly weapons. Any advice?

    Why take a chance on further problems, let it heal then start working out again.

    Boxing has plenty of footwook, besides all the squating.

    either take a break and leave it heal or take up whatever you want and do what you can, while steering well clear of anything you feel uncomfortable with. If your doctor said you could train but not spar then you should be fine
