Yeah Yeah I know, I should know this. What is the Japanese term for sitting crossed legged? I saw it somewhere but can't remember!:confused:

I've always heard it called "anza."
Hope that helps.

According to the Aikido Association of America, sitting cross legged is "Agura No Shisei."
Both "anza" and "agura" can, indeed, denote sitting cross-leggedly. "Anza" (easy sitting) is usually said in contrast to "seiza" (proper sitting).
