I feel like his name is familiar, but I don't know anything about him. I'll look up his books. I have a small growing collection on the subject of Ninjutsu. It's hard to find credible sources on the subject that don't cater to the stereotype.
I can imagine it would be hard to do endless breakfall rolls when you have a spinal defect. There are, however, philosophical aspects to it that you might find interesting/beneficial. There's a book called "The spiritual practices of the Ninja" that I really like, but I can't remember the name of the author right now.
