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.

"In my opinion, the time of spreading aikido to the world is finished; now we have to focus on quality." Yamada Yoshimitsu

Ultracrepidarianism ... don't.
