Re: Multiple Sclerosis

Lloyd, good points you make on the issues of folks in chairs.
You may want to connect w/ Tom Osborne who has worked w/ disabled vets some of whom were chairbound. (I'll pm you his info)

My thoughts: it ain't easy but one can move one's center while seated. Having been doing kokyudosa many years via sitting crosslegged and immobile (rather than in seiza and finishing w/ suwariwaza) I can testify it is challenging but a heck of a good way to really learn how to drop center and move center (both enter and rotate) when other movement isn't possible - its what taught me the difference between "hips" and "center"!
