Saturday Karate class.

One each of Heian Shodan and Heian Godan.

Good class again on Saturday.

We did mostly a repeat of Friday’s class. Lots of basics and kata.

One thing that really helped was something my Sensei said about doing kata. He made the point that many of us really slow down by trying to show that our moves are powerful. Instead of trying to force the power, he said to just relax everything and go through the moves as fast as possible. I have always powered my way though my moves and when I just relaxed my muscles, my moves were much more fluid and much easier to execute. I am going to add some high speed kata’s like those to my current kata training and see what happens.
