Re: Suwari Waza

My main issue isn't my knees (thankfully) its my toes! They don't bend THAT far back. I've tried to stretch them, tilt them etc. Just end up with very sore joint and no additional flexibility. So my suwari is done with my feet 'flat' against the mat...bad form I know. I have found it very instructional and in cases where I'm working with kids being able to move well in suwari is helpful to adjust to their height.
