Seiza 正座

Seiza is written with two Chinese characters. The character pronounced sei- means "proper, right, true," and by itself can be pronounced tadashii, meaning "just right" or "proper." The character -za means "sitting posture," and is written with an ideograph depicting people sitting on a raised platform under a roof.

Cool. I thought it meant "ouch."

Happy New Year!

Would not "o" stand for big and "uch" for kill? Happy New Year to you too.

I think you left out the character for "leg falls asleep while watching test."
