Re: unusual seiza problem - pain in BACK of knee
I started aikido in 1992 and I still have excruciating pain in my knees from sieza ... I kind of just ignore it now.
After watching Chiba sensei get up after sitting for a few minutes and stumble as he could not get his legs under him I figured there was no hope so I stopped thinking about it. I figured the point was to be able to ignore the discomfort - that kind of training does have its benefits.
