Re: Training people with prior serious knee injuries

Agreed, I've had a number of students who've gone through ACL surgery (mostly due to jiu-jitsu!) and they've been able to come back after their physical therapy as long as they were responsible about ramping things up and not diving headlong back into things. Work on range of motion first, as that gets better you can start adding weight. I'd be careful with really explosive movements, even unweighted, at first, too.
