Saturday Karate class and workout.

One each of Heian Shodan, Heian Nidan, Heian Sandan, Heian Yondan, Heian Godan and Tekki Shodan. (6 total)

Excellent class but very painful.

We did a great deal of basics again, working on all of our test moves. Our Sensei is pushing us very hard to make sure that we do well on our tests and I like these classes better than the sparring classes. Basics and kata are my favorite part of Karate.

We did a lot of moves, much more than we would ever have to do at our tests but I was really winded. My legs were shaking and I could not tighten my fists near the end of class because all of my energy was sapped.

We then did kata in front of the group and even thought I didn’t think I had any steam left, I felt that my kata was pretty good overall.

My legs and hips hurt all day and night so I know I really pushed up against my limits.

Good stuff!
