I tend to be the extreme voice that says: knee pain w/ history of damage? then don't do shikko, don't do suwariwaza, period. It's too hight risk, too likely to create problems that will further interfere with your future training. Most people ignore me....
I injured my left knee (why is it always the left knee?) a few months back and have been taking it easy since then. Shikko and suwariwaza are definitely out for me since I also had a toe injury that just does not want to get better and restricts me from kneeling with the toes bent. I guess we all just have to make adjustments as we get older and less flexible.
