Karate and Kickboxing

Lots of kata in karate class. Working with Steve – we’re both trying to earn our kata stripes. I’m putting a little more emphasis on some of the moves and slowing down in parts to make the kata more dynamic. I’ll have Shihan take a look tomorrow during our lesson and see if he likes the changes.

Kickboxing was good – nice way to work out the kinks!

Karate and Kickboxing

Two really good classes tonight. Also, Mr. Adams made us run around the entire perimeter of building a total of four times with exercises in between each lap – all of this after 45 minutes of kickboxing!

Karate and Kickboxing – When tired.

The night before, I was out late because I hosted a client event for work. Needless to say, I was pretty wiped out and only planned on doing Karate, but after getting there and getting my juices flowing (as well as seeing my peers), I stuck it out and felt pretty good afterwards!

During karate, we worked quite a bit on spinning crescent and jump spinning back for Nidan requirements.

After class, I also worked on my PT for me ACL.

Karate, Cardio Kickboxing, and PT

The usual plus the PT – it’s not hard, but it is time consuming. My Physical Therapist said that when that injury acts up, I need to resume my exercises and ice as a first line of defense. I was able to do classes just fine, but didn’t kick with full speed and power. I also had to take it easy on the squats. I did them, just a little slower.
