On the other hand, performing tachi-waza does not feel so bad when I'm doing it, but after a class with a lot of kihon doza (especially hiriki no yosei ni) my knees get stiffer and also the patellas feel like they're going to explode, which is sort of new since I originally started this thread.
sounded like you put a lot of lateral torque to your knees, usually happens when doing the turn/tenkan. see if you can do tenkan without putting lateral stress to your knees.
