For those of you who got sore knees when you started, how long was it before it went away? My knees are currently limiting my advancement - even at this early stage, I can sense how much extra strength is generated through the legs and waist when the stance is right. Unfortunately, my knees are complaining about the pigeon toed stance and especially the twisting punches. Sifu's advice is to take it easy for now, with a taller stance than ideal. I'm also only doing the twisting punches while wearing socks. I still get the knee pains, but they go away within a couple of days, suggesting that I'm straining them enough to make them stronger, but not enough to injure them. So, keep doing what I'm doing? Any suggestions on excercises to strengthen the knee ligaments? And how long should I expect this to go for? Thanks in advance!
