Re: Hard to Stay in Seiza

Practice bit by bit at home if you can. Your hips and quad muscles may not be used to that yet. In addition, some people feel pain in their ankles and feet. If it is quite painful, then maybe you should ask your sensei for an exception. There are a few people in my dojo you just cannot sit in seiza long if at all.
