Re: Shikko, toes, ouch!

After ramping up and doing Suri-waza for my previous test and starting to work on Hanmi Hantachi for my next test; I've noticed my toes tend to hurt for several days after practice. It even seems to be getting worse. After 10 minutes of Hanmi Hantachi today my toes have been aching for the past 4 hours! The pain rides right down the last joint of each toe.

I'm curious to know if anyone else has experienced this? And what your possible suggestions are? Right now I'm just going to refuse to do it (in a nice and polite manner of course).

I've already talked with Sensei and plan on reiterating it to him next class.
ummm.....sitting in formal position gets to my toes, I can always feel it after class.

To speak ill of anything is against the nature of Aikido
