Re: Absent Patellae

w/ no patella and falling due to lack of stability, i doubt any doctor would ok suwariwaza (note he okd 'physical activity' unspecified) and i'd suggest that he simultaneously outside dojo be doing quads and hamstring strengthening plus plyometrics all under supervision to compensate for his disability.
