I’m trying to see if I can do some baguazhang turns but they seem to cause my right knee some trouble. I think I lack the necessary hip flexibility – I believe my lower leg wants to turn more than my upper leg, which puts pressure on my knee. I’m going to need to stop trying this turn for the moment until I can get the flexibility and learn to do this motion correctly. My left leg seems to have no trouble but it’s also more flexible for some reason, so that also makes me suspect having rom issues in the other leg is the culprit.
