Training notes – Karate, drills & kata

Another good class!!

Added front side kick & back kick. Good questions on leg positioning relative to where kick is headed. More discusion of power vs placement.

Punching drills on the pads helped reinforce (no pun intended) wrist alignment and gave a good workout.



Great work on kata! Some good examples of just “phoning it in” though. Remember, if you’re bored with a kata, then there’s something you’re not thinking about. Speed up, slow down, focus on footwork, etc. As you’re learning it, take it in small chunks.
