Did something to my left leg on Friday

All I was attempting to do was lift my left leg a little higher for a jumping front kick, and something snapped on the inside of my back left thigh. I was still capable of moving without pain and go into stance, but if I attempted to lift my left knee higher than half a foot my leg would hurt, and refuse to go.

Confused, and curious, I tested to see how far, and in what direction my left leg would allow movement. Sideways was fine, but forwards, and up.. no way.

So.. I have allowed my body to rest, and heal for the past 3 days, and will continue to do so for another 2 days, to see if it was just a slight pull of an inner leg muscle that needs to recuperate.

Osu!

I hope it was not what happened to me.

I developed an acute Tendinitis in my left hamstring near the back of the knee. In August of 2009 my leg collapsed and that is when I discovered this. Months later and one cortisone shot later it is almost 100% better but it was a very annoying injury.

Osu!

I remember you mentioning this kind of problem on the Kyokushin forum.

I hope that it's not the same thing. I know that my right leg is complaining more now that I'm taking it easier on my left leg.
