Thursday Karate class.

Lots of basics and combinations.

Then we worked on some new moves.

One move was to have our partner throw a front snap kick, I moved to the side and follow up with an angled front snap kick or a cutting kick. The other move was to have our partner throw a front snap kick, I shift to the side and thrust my back leg behind my partners leg and then throw them over my leg. The timing has to be pretty good but it is a very effective move and I would guess it would work on much larger opponents very well. We spent about 45 minutes working on those two moves alone.

We then finished up with a single Heian Shodan.
