Re: "knee walking" and friction

I made 2 trips around the mat after class today and my knees were burning from the friction. Is this normal or am I dragging my knees too much? (1)

My knees were also very red which is to be expected I guess. (2)

This also seems like a good way to wear out gi pants pretty quick. (3)
1) I find mine get red from the friction of twisting as I move forward; don't know about dragging.

2) Read Twigger (Angry White Pajamas) for perspective on knee walking.

3) Gi pants--Huh! Just wait til you've invested in a HAKAMA!
