acually your knees are made to bend so you wanna keep them all nice and bendy just dont twist them. in Yoshinkan Aikido one of my Senseis Geordan Reynolds, 4th dan Yoshinkai ( same one who went to the Expo) said that he had 2 surguries for his legs but when he went to jappan all the japs ( who bend their knees all the way past the toes yoshinkan Stance makes you have your front knee go past your toes as well as have your back leg straight.) didnt have any knee problems at all. So he learned how to do the correct Stance ( the one i described) and all was well . so bend your knees but dont twist them
