Re: Knee pads?

Anyone have a good source for some knee pads with gel-I've tried others and they don't work well. I have bad knees -torn meniscus, Baker's cyst. I simply cannot go down in seiza anymore but at seminars I try partial seiza- knees kill me by the end. I saw some with gel in them-anyone have experience with them? I view knee pads like kilts. It's no one's business what is under the gi or hakama.
John, I'm going to guess that in your case, like in mine, nothing external is going to reduce the internal pressures generated by the seiza posture.
