 When I was a kid and just getting into martial arts I used to do a bunch of dumb stuff that I'm convinced ruined my hips forever like jumping into splits with no warm-up etc.

For the past 10 years or so, when I roll, my hips cramp up and get super inflamed.  The pain can last for a couple days thereafter.  Ironically, I tend to feel the pain most when I have my hooks in in the mount or on the back mount and I'm stretching the person out.  In my guard, i rarely feel it.  

Anyone else suffer from this?  It's like my kryptonite as it takes me completely out of it mid-roll.

Getting old sucks.  

All of the old Shotokan guys I know have had hip replacements.

What looks pretty for kata, is bad mechanics and bad for your hips.  

I am paying that price and I only did Shotokan for 4 1/2 years, twenty years ago.
