Friday Karate class.

Today was my first day back at Friday night class. My Sensei’s pushed us hard tonight with a lot of stance work.

We warmed up with shifting, jogging, strecthing and then the horse stance with single punch, double punch and triple punch.

First was horse stance with our partner holding his hand over our heads and making sure that we stay low and don’t rise up during punches.

Second was front, our partner holding a pad in front of our knee making sure that we are bending low enough and also hold our back leg at the ankle to make sure that we keep a good stance.

Next was our partner pulling our belts around our waist as we move forward in our front stances.

It was a good workout and I felt really good tonight.

No weight workout tonight since I had class.
